Entering Cafe Royal is like time-travelling back to 1863; the building is a lovely example of Parisian-style architecture and the bar features stunning stained glass windows and ornate plaster designed ceiling. Film lovers should recognise this cafe from the movie Chariots of Fire. The food is a mixture of traditional Scottish dishes and the finest seafood; in particular the oysters are excellent. I recommend starting off with the house speciality; 3 oysters and a glass of Veuve Cliquot. 19 W Register St, Edinburgh, UK
