About Grand Cru

Dear diners, please note that online reservations are for the restaurant only. To book for drinks only, please contact the restaurant directly.

It’s hard to pigeonhole Edinburgh’s Grand Cru. Part restaurant with a distinct Italian bent, part cocktail lounge and bar, this stylish, atmospheric venue on Hanover Street on the New Town side of the city has peerless pedigree. Grand Cru oozes charm by night, and cheerful hospitality by day, starting with breakfast and rolling right through to lunch, dinner, DJs and drinks. Close to Princes and George Streets and the Royal Mile, Grand Cru is perfectly positioned as a restaurant to refuel after a day sightseeing or hitting the shops, and the perfect kickstarter bar before a night on the town. No matter the way you envisage your visit to this top Edinburgh F&B representative, be sure to book ahead.

I was at Grand Cru with 3 friends we had a lovely time. The atmosphere was great. The staff were so attentive especially when I asked for a gluten free menu. The food was amazing and plentiful. We ended up just staying there would definitely recommend you and come back.

Lovely food, very reasonably priced but didn't have our booking and it was fully booked, except some cancellation for table of 4 enabled us have a table thankfully. Otherwise a birthday celebration for 6 would have been deeply disappointed. Out of the six of us everyone loved their startes, mozzarella, mushrooms and pate, but for the mains the only complaint re the fish was too much batter. All in all a good time had.

We had the 2 courses for £7.95, the portions were generous and the food delicious. The service was prompt and we were left to have a leisurely lunch which lasted 2 hours +. Oh, and the house red and white wine was very reasonably priced and quaff able , we'll definitely go back.

I've visited on 4 - occasions with work colleagues and family and friends and always found staff friendly helpful and attentive. Food is good and service is quick. Music can be a little load but asked to move table to a booth and we were accommodated without any complaints. We will be back

I was there for a birthday celebration at lunch time, although it was a busy Sat. the staff were very attentive. We started with mussels to share which were excellent then we had chicken and chorizo pasta, ceaser salad and chicken supreme, all really nice. No complaints at all.

I had booked 2 tables of 6 however when we arrived we found that only one had been reserved, however the staff were lovely and very helpful and within 10 minutes they had found us another table. We had a lovely evening after that!

My husband and I dined on here on Saturday,he had sirloin steak which he says was lovely ,I had macaroni cheese,which was bland and had no salad or garlic bread with it. Disappointing.We hd asked for blush wine and got white,when we said to waitress,she just shrugged her shoulders and said sorry.

Staff are very nice and friendly and it is a great place with great selection of drinks and promos. It is in a central location and a late night bar which is great!

I go to grand cru a lot but it seems to be after a certain time of day the service goes down hill. The food was lovely and the cocktails are always great but we sat for 15 mins with empty plates/ glasses and couldn't get anyone's attention. We had planned on staying longer but ended up moving on as the service was so poor.

Excellent food, lovely staff. Nice to have the vibrant bar area and the quieter eating area slightly separate so you weren't having to shout whilst eating but could still enjoy the atmosphere.

Great menu, lots of choice, huge portion size, wide range of cocktails, pleasant staff, nice surroundings, only criticism could be that the food took longer than expected to come to the table but worth it when it did.

Love this bar, it's always got a teally relaxed vibe from day to night. Good is great and reasonably priced. Best bit is it doesn't try too hard to be 'swanky' it just pulls it off anyway
