Do you have a hankering for haggis? Fancy fish & chips? Yelp brings you 10 restaurants to try some tasty Scottish fare!

The Atelier Restaurant
159-161 Morrison Street, Haymarket, Edinburgh

Claire L loves the foody craft of this dining spot, where "the menu changes regularly" but she guarantees that whenever you go "there are tempting options". Her verdict on the pork she had: "Delish!"

Stravaigin
28 Gibson Street, Glasgow

Jules M was impressed by the "well balanced" menu which was "inclusive with plenty to keep carnivores, vegetarians and vegans happy. Our group opted for the fish & chips, chicken curry and a vegetarian vindaloo - the food was perfectly prepared, piping hot and packed full of flavour!"
 
Three Birds
3 Viewforth, Bruntsfield, Edinburgh

From the moment you walk in you'll "feel welcome", according to Kat A. With offerings like coffee-cooked carrots, pickled eggs on the vegetarian mezze, and sharing platters like the Big Cow - "a 600g steak, bag of fries and small sides" - it's simple and delicious dining.

Fanny Trollopes Bistro
1066 Argyle Street, Glasgow

Featuring locally sourced dishes like Scottish rib eye steak, Perthshire venison and Glenfarg lamb, Steven B loved the "seafood that extends way beyond my usual fish supper".

Field
41 West Nicolson Street, Newington, Edinburgh

When Phil C thinks of the name Field, he thinks of "grassy pastures and fresh air". A perfect evocation for a restaurant serving seasonal, locally sourced produce. The starter of "salmon is wonderfully tender". The "moist and tasty" chorizo burger is also a winner!

Café Source
1 St Andrews Square, Glasgow

Leigh H went for the "battered fillet of hake with fries and homemade tartare sauce, which was delicious - the batter was crisp without being excessively crunchy, and the tartare sauce complemented the fish perfectly".

The Gardener's Cottage
1 Royal Terrace Gardens, London Road, Edinburgh

This homely cottage offers a set six-course menu for £30, which changes regularly. Nadya S recommends their brunch of "poached eggs and greens on sourdough". For dinner, dine on the likes of mutton faggot, and grilled apples with Crowdie ice cream.

The Grill Room
29 Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow

Going all out for a special occasion, Lex G says "the restaurant is really beautiful, especially overlooking the stringed lights of Royal Exchange Square. The food was absolutely gorgeous from the mussels to the Chateaubriand for two".

The Pantry
1-2 NW Circus Place, Stockbridge, Edinburgh

Serving brunch, lunch and dinner with BYOB, this is relaxed bistro dining with exceptional food. Jurgen D opts for "seasoned pink lamb, smooth mash, capers, lemon, mint"... and don't forget the rhubarb pannacotta for dessert!

The Gannet
1155 Argyle Street, Glasgow

This new addition to the Finnieston strip shows off Scottish delights like smoked salmon - "perfectly smoked, with the perfect accompaniment of fennel and horseradish". Graeme H tried the "lovely lamb" for main, "cooked a little on the pink side, with a great mash to go with it".
