A Candlelit Dinner in Edinburgh, Scotland

Just a short hop from the National Museum of Scotland, we stumbled upon The Outsider. I looked online, and this place had promised a quiet, candlelit dinner in Edinburgh. For a restaurant situated right near the heart of Edinburgh, we were lucky to get a table (although it was before the normal dinner hour). A reservation is highly encouraged.

I could tell from a first glance that it was a trendy place. The seating was unique and the place was aglow with candle light. The clean modern design was pleasing to the eye.  Promising fresh and seasonal produce, we couldn’t wait to dig in for a taste.

We had been seated near the back window, and the view, especially in the dark, was really enchanting. Derek and I both ordered the venison, served on a bed of barley and leeks. Leeks are something I do not eat often enough. I could already tell it is more of a staple here across the pond. Furthermore, I’d discovered that Scotland does meat just as well as us Albertan’s do. The venison was amazing, to say the least.
