Relive those memories of holidaying in Greece at My Big Fat Greek Restaurant, a charming taverna on Brougham Street.

Located in the southern reaches of the West End, not too far from Haymarket, My Big Fat Greek Kitchen attracts both locals and tourists alike – be sure of snagging a seat at this hotspot by booking a table in advance!
Delicious food, good prices and excellent service. Will definitely return soon! The sharing dish was very good and thoroughly recommend it. Staff were attentive without being intrusive.
Had read some reviews about poor service. Although we may have been fortunate that on the Sunday evening we visited it was very quiet, service was very good. We ordered the Aegean sharers. There were a couple of dishes we would have liked that weren't available but those we got were very good. Only issue was there was too much, though we made a good effort trying to eat everything! All dishes were very good.
We took our 3 children (10, 6 and 6). The food was delicous, the staff very nice and made us feel welcome. We'll be back!
The Greek diet is often regarded as one of the freshest and most healthy in the world, so when you choose a meal out at a Greek restaurant, you want the food to be fresh and healthy, right? Well, folks, good news: My Big Fat Greek Kitchen serves just that. On Brougham Street in the Tollcross area of Edinburgh, this restaurant is to die for. As well as the food there is traditional Greek hospitality in abundance and even though the atmosphere is relaxed, sometimes you might even find yourself up and dancing…
But less about dancing and more about eating... Greek fiends of Edinburgh can look forward to starting off with some mezze plates like the spicy greek sausage, feta parcels or keftedes meatballs, before moving on to some chicken souvlaki, moussaka, gyros merida or some sea bass fillet drizzled with lemon sauce. Whatever you end up ordering, you’ll notice the freshness, the quality, as well as a typically-Greek use of many dashes of olive oil – the key ingredient that’s ever-present and brings any dish together in just the right way. Reserve a table and head to Tollcross to get involved.
