We use this restaurant every time we are in Edinburgh. It's relaxed and unhurried and the food is wonderful. The staff are helpful and we really cannot fault it. It's in Rose Street, just behind Princess Street in Centre, great location. It's not everywhere that...More

Really good mussel, a whole kilo to myself! I almost managed it. My sister had the sea bream and she clearly enjoyed it cos if she could she would have licked the plate.

Disappointing first visit. Had looked at this place a few times so decided to go in for some food. Food is below average standard. Fish and chips just like cheap café food, fish was oily and very small. Salmon was ok. Only saving grace was...More

We were strolling down Rose street looking for a place to eat and noticed the Rosehip and decided to try the fare. Atmosphere was welcoming and we were quickly seated at a table near the window to watch life go by. The menu was adequate...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

The Rosehip offers a real genuineness in their friendly relaxed service, with a background of vintage decor, the clinking of antique crockery and chilled out tunes. A supremely fresh high quality of rotating specials and classic main meals, there is also the generous grill menu for those who need a more hearty feed. The head chef has a flare for finding fish and meat from the local suppliers which is evident in the tasting. Of a lunch time a quick bite can be found in the soup and sandwich menu for £6.50, And the restaurant is child friendly. The bar offers the biggest selection of whiskies in the New Town, an extensive wine & spirits list and a range of Scottish bottled and draught beers. It certainly is nice to see a quality central site independent of any of the chains which are so prevalent these days. Open for a hearty breakfast from 8am Monday to Friday and 10am-12noon during weekends.
