If you want a solo belly-dance then book for 7pm on a Thursday which is how our anniversary turned into a bizarre tete-a-tete with a delightfully rippling Glasweigan. Our overall experience at Walima Morocco was great and the tagines we ordered were the perfect thickness and consistancy of meat, fruit and sauce. We felt bad not being able to offer a better audience to our belly-dancer but we picked up some good tips. An excellent place to go with a group of friends, so you can make the most of the food, ambience and have a crack as rippling that torso!

Fantastic food and service in this Broughton Street Restaurant.Despite being located in the centre of it all the restaurant's atmosphere remains relaxed and friendly and the staff always willing to help - which for us was fetching more and more rice and we had tragically under ordered! The stir-dry dishes were fragrant and clean tasting and the curry delicious soups with a generous mix of meat and vegetable. For a birthday treat for 10 they looked after us very well and my mother in law is still singing its praises.

I have been told by my husband that this is where women should be going if they want to meet a down-to-earth Edinburgh bloke. It’s a proper pub with real men in it - grr - is what he’s trying to tell me. There are regular match screenings for ball fans and its dark wood panelling and circular bar create a serious drinking ambience for punters which cling to its outline. Don’t expect leather sofas and cocktails, but if you want grub step through to the area at the back for some solid filling food that won’t break the bank and therefore might make The Baillie a suitable place for that 2nd 'this is me’ laid back date.
1 Raeburn Place, Stockbridge, Edinburgh, Scotland EH4 1HU
This busy Stockbridge haunt hates to turn away a good customer. We appeared salivating at their doors and they immediately booked us in for 30 minutes time, asking if we didn't mind having a drink next door first. By the smell wafting from the kitchens as various things sizzled in our direction it was tempting not to say 'I'm happy here thanks'. We all ordered steaks which came with a variety of delicious sauces (try the red wine and blue cheese) with onion rings and chips as sides. The waiter made us feel very welcome and checked all was OK and managed to convince us we really did have room for dessert. A very enjoyable dining experience and well worth a visit when in Stockbridge.

An intriguing place to go and it's impressive how much is available for the public to copy and reproduce. Informed and passionate staff will help you with your enquiry and indentify the maps most suitable to your needs. We were looking for an old East Lothian map to be used on a website and the library not only found us a wide seletion dating back to 1650 but they informed us that they could scan them onto a disc, or we might already find the image scanned in onto their vast on-line collection. Idea: Ye Olde Edinburgh maps make a beautiful gift for a friend.

Easily the best thai food I have had in Edinburgh. Situated off the 'pink triangle' of Edinburgh's East End, it's an ideal place to go pre-theatre or post-cinema. Greedy guzzlers can indluge in the Banquet which for £20 each gives you a selection of beautifully created starters and mains which complement eachother and leave you full but wanting more somehow... Lovely wood carvings adorn the walls and the staff were lovely and served us punctually.

Patio is indeed a friendly, welcoming Italian restuarant and the 'Mama' maitre' D ensures you are served promptly. I experienced their 3 courses for £6.95 lunch time menu which is quite a bargain, but saying that the quality of the food really varies. The pizzas were greasy and certainly didn't evoke memories of Italy, rather a visit to a chip shop on a saturday night. The desserts were all from the land of cardboard box catering, so although I was indeed full after my meal, I didn't really feel I had eaten particularly nice food. However for a feast on a budget you can't go much wrong and with such a variety of dishes I'm sure some are cooked with some real italian flare.
Esporta Health & Fitness Dundee Street, Edinburgh, Scotland EH11 1AL
Having had many gym memberships die the death in the past I knew what I was getting myself into by joining the corporate jungle that is Virgin Active gyms. I have so far found the gym a relaxing place to hang-out, the only thing missing being windows as the gym's in the basement, so you can feel a bit penned in. I was particularly impressed with the creche facilities for children from 6 weeks old to 10 years old. I'm planning to introduce my baby to water early and make use of the creche for short sessions while I work on my yummy mummy figure! Helpful and infomed staff and personal training to hand should make all customers feel well-looked after. Arrange a tour and you might find yourself offered a no-joining fee deal which helps the purse.
42 High Street, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, Scotland EH1 1TG
I took my class here on a school trip and overall found the place an informative blast from the past for adults and of some interest to today's children. However the exhibition has not changed in years and could have moved with the times by exhibiting items from the 70's and 80's which represents the age of most Primary pupil's parents. All the exhibits have been well-cared for but as a lot of them are behind glass a level of interaction is lost and some children become bored by the lack of 'doing' activities offered by the museum.
69 St. James Centre, Edinburgh, Scotland EH1 3SP
I'm reviewing this from an alternative perspective, as THE place to go if you're a new Mum. Not only is mid-afternoon like a buggy parade, but it's the prefect time to catch up with a friend for an afternoon snack/lunch with baby and be able to breast-feed comfortably in the cafe or in their dedicated breast feeding room.
It is pretty expensive to eat there (£5 for sarnie) but the store's overall accommodation for people with buggies - the aisles are wide, plenty of escalators and lifts make shopping and generally hanging out there a very pleasant experience.
