Where would be a nice place, in the city centre, to go for a meal with my dad and boyfriend?
The Blue Bunny Café near Haymarket is great. Really good food, none of the chairs match, and it's quite likely your cup of tea with have Kevin Keegan's face on it.
The view's good; the food's bobbins.
I went recently and thought it was great. Was it the price you were opposed to? You can get 3 courses for 20 quid deals there sometimes.
and pretty mediocre (even compared to Newcastle/Gateshead).
It's been a couple of years since I went though.
Mrs JH. She has a strange thing about the North East. I have booked Raval which looks to be a pretty kicking indian restaurant with awards and that. Can anyone vouch for that please?
so I suspect it will be passable.
Sounds like you didn't need anyone to vouch for it.
but yes, I did kind of answer my own question.
Evening meal though.
Japanese (obvs) and not too expensive. Some good bars round there too.
but friends never want to venture much further than Bankok Cafe and Nudo (both good)
Another one I've just thought of is El Coto (Tapas) near St. James'. It's quite intimate and you can sit outside if the weather's nice and they light candles and stuff.
Is Flat Bread Café still alright? Pani’s is always cheap and friendly too.
It got credit crunched I think. I'm not that bothered though,I never really embraced that concept. Yeh Pani's is alright.
Ahh… Belle & Herbs in the days before it got so busy and you could just wander up for lunch on the weekend and get a table straightaway…
but busier with a (slightly) smaller menu
It's still quite busy, but it's a great place to live round the corner from.
I used to live on Cardigan Terrace, so the hungover stumble was nice and short.
High bridge street, Sicilian food
