At Vesta Restaurant & Bar, we dish out fresh, locally sourced food that puts smiles on faces while also giving back to those that need it most.

Set in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre, we are open daily for lunch, dinner and drinks. Our menu is bursting with beautiful, healthy vegan and vegetarian plates, comfort classics from steaks to seafood and burgers and our ‘Bubbles & Brunch’ is the perfect way to while away a Sunday.

Vesta exists for a social mission, run along the same social ethos as our partners, Social Bite, the social enterprise aiming to end homelessness in Scotland. We hope our feel good food leads to feel good actions. If you enjoy your meal with us, you can ‘Pay It Forward’ and donate the cost of a coffee, lunch or dinner. 100% of your donation will be passed straight to Social Bite’s charity to distribute the food and we open exclusively on Monday afternoons to serve a two course lunch to people experiencing homelessness too.

Everything was wonderful, from the friendly bartender to the restaurant ambiance - great music, right volume, right aesthetic. The food was amazing, and the espresso martini was so good, I want back the next evening for another. Highly recommend

The philosophy of social support is to be commended. There is something for most dietary preferences on the menu. Food was to a good standard, the duck confit was delicious. There is area for improvement on service. Table of 4 and waitress cleared table when one of us was still eating and offered others the desert menu or the bill. Didn't finish meal as felt embarrassed and under pressure to finish. The social consideration should extend to diners as this may be rare occasion the manage to enjoy a meal together and conversation catch up. Did speak to manager who explained waitress was new. Would still recommend as the food was enjoyable and with training service could improve

Beautiful sophisticated food in a deceptively casual restaurant. Don’t be fooled by the excellence of the vegan and vegetarian clothes these guys can really cook fish and meat! Service was attentive and prices very reasonable for the standard on offer which is a match for any sub Michelin 1 star establishment.
