The Ivy on the Square brings relaxed, sophisticated all-day dining with a touch of theatre to the heart of Edinburgh. You’ll find great British classics, Asian-inspired cuisine and fantastic vegan and vegetarian dishes just a stone’s throw from Princes Street.

Open seven days a week, the restaurant includes a vibrant dining space, alongside a bar and striking mezzanine terrace overlooking Edinburgh’s historic St Andrew Square just off of Edinburgh High Street. Whether you’re booking for breakfast, brunch, dinner or lunch, holding a business meeting or just shooting the breeze with friends, it’s the ideal destination.


We don’t do everything by the book though. We understand the joy of grabbing the moment and seizing the day, so we make sure we keep a number of tables unreserved for those spur-of-the-moment walk-ins.

Either way, you’ll find a warm welcome, delicious food, incredible cocktails and friendly, knowledgeable service.
