okay but not that great, 1 April 2011
I spent 5 months in Edinburgh in 2009. From this book, I found the information about tourist attractions is quite useful. However, the information about local cafes and restaurants is not. I can't believe the author didn't mention two best cafes in Edinburgh, that is, Kilimanjaro and Black Medicine. From my experience, they sell the best coffee in the city!!! Some experts even list Kilimanjaro in the top 10 best cafes in the UK. Local people know that but he keeps reviewing tons of cafes which are not famous at all.
There's a famous Korean restaurant in Edinburgh called Shilla. The food is amazing but he forgot to mention it in his book again. He also didn't reccommend great Thai restaurants but the so-so ones instead. Cheers!!!
