Brazilian Sensation

Open Monday to Sunday 12:00 -16:00 and 17:00 – 22:00.

This is a little place but packed full of great energy situated on 117 – 119 Buccleuch Street just beside the Meadows.  Lucia runs the show and looks after all her guests with that fantastic Brazilian warmth that you would imagine.

A main course ranges in price from £8.95 to £11.95 and covers a wealth of Brazilian cuisine, not to be missed the Xinxim; a spicy chicken, dried shrimp, cashew nuts and coconut, while for dessert you can’t go wrong with the Bolo de Chocolate com Banana.

Angels with Bagpipes

Open daily from  12:00 till 22:00.  

Having only opened last November, this restaurant run by Marina Crolla has already developed a very respectable name for itself.  Situated on the Royal Mile what seems like a small establishment from the outside opens up tardis like, with chamber after chamber for people to dine.  Scottish chef Paul Whitecross regularly serves up fantastic dishes locally sourced offering Scottish dishes with Italian flavours.

The gorgeous baroque style decoration in this restaurant really adds to the atmosphere dining in the old town of Edinburgh.

Starter course ranges in price from £8.50 to £11.75

Main course ranges in price from £16.95 to £21.95

On October 1st it is the 14th birthday of the celebrated Edinburgh club VEGAS at Adam House, Chambers Street.  This incredible club will delight old fans and the new and curious with the “Club Tropicana Room” “The Stardust Casino Lounge” and “Copacabana Cabaret Room” covering three floors of swing and groove, games and high jinx.

For those who like a laugh, there are regular shows at The Stand Comedy Club on Queen Street, and on Sept 30 and Oct 1 arrives Jason Manford at the Edinburgh Playhouse with his brand of stand up comedy.  Reginald Hunter will also be in Edinburgh on the 18th October with his stand up comedy show at the Playhouse.

September/October is traditionally the most benevolent time weather wise on the Edinburgh calendar, so why not take a trip to the Botanical Gardens on Inverlieth Row? With a new restaurant open, it is a guaranteed good afternoon for those who want to walk through some beautiful nature and forget the hustle and bustle of city life (for a few hours at least).

In the words of Flowered Up singer Liam Mahr: What ever you do dear reader “what ever you do, we hope it makes you happy.”
