Myself and two friends dined here this week. We came across the place accidentally, and didn't imagine that the 'Richmond Cafe' would actually be a Greek eatery. The staff were very passionate about the food they served, and I was gently persuaded to try one...More

It is one of the best kept secrets in Edinburgh. Dimitris cooking is superb: decent Greek home cooking. Try the pitta pitta the yaourtlou the omelet ; all very honest well balanced non pretentious dishes. Friendly staff welcoming. One will come again and again!

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
