Located in Stockbridge, Edinburgh, Merienda serves Mediterranean-inspired small plates of the finest artisan Scottish produce, featuring a tasting menu you design. It’s an exquisite, casual fine dining experience with a difference.

Merienda works in partnership with its sister catering firm Exec Chef Cuisine, which specialises in bespoke fine dining and high-end events catering.

“It’s casual dining with the very best that Scotland has to offer.”

Our fresh, seasonal menu utilises the very best of Scotland’s larder cooked and served in a Mediterranean style: Small plates with a communal dining experience. We have built up a fantastic relationship with artisan producers and trusted suppliers who ensure we receive the finest ingredients available in the country.

The menu is ever-evolving and based around 5 main sections: Staples, Fields & Gardens, Rivers & Seas, Farms & Pastures and Sweetness. These 5 sections flow with the seasons. We use some of the finest small artisan producers around Scotland, from individual cheese-making farms, a smokehouse in the Hebrides, some line-caught fish, a mushroom farm, charcuteries and the best poultry and meats. Provenance is at the heart of our menus.

Wines are sourced from small growers around Europe, offering sumptuous White, Rosé and Red wines, all hand selected to match the dishes that we serve. The majority of our superb wines are available by the glass. We have a list of purely Scottish craft beers, a large selection of spirits that are high-end and pre-dominantly Scottish sourced, a range of Scottish soft drinks and an incredibly rare whisky because we might as well have something unique. 

We can email, post or arrange a gift voucher for collection from the restaurant. These are available at £50, £100 or £200 denominations. To order a gift voucher, please get in touch via email.
