The hunger had set in and we were desperate for somewhere good for brunch. I do love Broughton Street for its variety of places to eat but was on the hunt for a first time visit; and so the Olive Branch Bistro won us over. I drive past this place most days and it is always busy, which to me is a good sign. People always seem to be eating, laughing and having a good time.

We were greeted by lovely friendly staff and shown to our seats. The place was quite bustling and had a lovely buzz about it.

The menu was very tempting with delicious sounding dishes on the menu and the specials board such as OB breakfast (with a veggie option), Club sandwiches, King Prawns with pineapple salsa and Haggis bon bons. I love that they have Gluten Free options and a healthier option.

Simply Superb. Finally got around to trying this well regarded bistro on Broughton Street today. I was directed to a free table at the window and a complimentary glass of iced water was provided with the menus. A nice touch. I opted for the jerk chicken salad and the braised shin of beef. The salad was quite exquisite and not the token effort I was expecting. Charred strips of chicken breast with a wonderful mango salsa and perfectly judged dressing. Even more impressive was the shin of beef. The meat was so tender and the tomato ragout balanced the richness perfectly. Even the buttered mash was superb. Add in the prompt and friendly service and I can't recommend this place highly enough. A well deserved addition to my favourites list.

Amazing food! Went there for my birthday and had 3 amazing meals. Some prices are a bit high but the quality of food is great. Plus we had a very friendly waiter. Really recommend the salmon with pineapple salsa and cheesecake to die for :)

Good value local cuisine.. Thoroughly enjoyed the lunch special that offered a delicious bowl of soup made with seasonal vegetables, followed by a mutton stew with creamy mashed potatoes. Excellent value at under £10. The setting is relaxed and the service friendly. Recommended.

Burger and wine. May be not the best thing to highlight on what is a great menu - but I love the cheeseburger, fries, coleslaw - with a glass of red. Usually busy and welcoming and with a nice buzz

If looking for relaxed, friendly bistro that is excellent value for money, look no further.

This place has THE best Bloody Mary in town. Be aware if you ask it spicy it will be spicy! Love it! I have been here several times for breakfast and always been exceptional. You get a normal sliced bread not cheap toast bread, scrambled egg is just perfect not the cream loaded version. Service is casual and cool. Never had any other food though but if they are as good as breakfast they are the winners.

Just what we wanted for lunch. Delicious soup of the day with plenty of bread. We also had fantastic tempura broccoli and a decent bowl of chips. Glass of red wine on a cold day. Lovely service too. Lots of choice on the menu and the Scottish breakfasts looked huge!

Very nice place for brunch. All the food was very good, definitely recommend the potato rosti. The poach eggs were perfectly cooked as well. Definitely a must go for some food. Not a massive place though but waiting a bit is good.

We stopped at the Olive Branch for a late lunch. The staff were lovely, very welcoming. We had a club sandwich and a steak sandwich both beautifully presented and very filling needless to say dinner was late that night. It is definitely worth a visit for very good simple food. We will definitely be visiting again

Great find, we had the small plates and wow, they were amazing! Worth trying 4 or 5 for a couple, a lovely range to choose from. Each was cooked beautifully and very tasty. Other choices on main menu looked interesting and suit all ages (teens and over) Service was great and friendly, and altogether very good value for the money considering how great the food was .

I try to visit the Olive branch on a monthly basis because their menu for breakfast and brunch is completely gorgeous. I'm super fan of the Rosti, but I have also tried the French toasts, pacifico eggs and the porridge. Everything is delicious! Good coffee as well. I have been also recommended to try their menu for dinner, well noted. This last time there was a Spanish waitress that was absolutely lovely, but I can say that all the staff are great!

It was our first gastronomic stop on Edinburgh, so we went for the classic fish and chips, it was delicious, fish was very crunch outside and soft inside. We tried the dark chocolate cheesecake and I have no words to how delicious it was.

Maybe it was just too busy for the two front-of-house staff, but this was a poor visit. Table wasn't cleared after main meals; not asked if we wanted more drinks; had to go to the counter to request dessert; ice cream had melted by the time we received said desserts. Hopefully a one-off, as we regularly eat there, but certainly not a guaranteed stop-off next time.

Walked right in as a tourist on a Thursday. Quaint and cozy. Food was very good and tasty.
