Scotland the Best 2012

January 6, 2012

“Fabulous conversion by Victor and Carina Contini of a lofty, pillared Georgian room towards the west end of Edinburgh’s better boulevard into the classiest restaurant on the street and the most stylish joint in town. Passion for food and good service always evident; and they are ubiquitous (although they also run The Scottish Restaurant in Princes St Gardens). Bar and central pizza oven, unexpected combos in a straightforward, oft-changing menu. Great people-watching strip of tabes on the street. 7.30am till LO 10pm (11pm Fri/Sat), 11am-9pm Sun. Bar open late.”

– A recent review from Peter Irvine’s Scotland the Best 2012

Well done team and thanks to all our lovely customers, suppliers and friends for your continued support xx

Food Gem of 2011!!

“Blending the finest ingredients from Milanese markets with local produce, sophisticated Centotre is a haven for the food conscious. It has been flying the flag for Italian cuisine for the past seven years and was a big hit with our reviewer too! Buon appetito.”

– David Walsh, ION Edinburgh

Terra Madre at Centotre

January 4, 2012

We celebrated Slow Food’s Terra Madre.  A celebration of good, clean, fair food that took place all over the world.  Setting up a free tasting and demo stand on George Street, in the snow, on the busiest shopping day of the year and one of the restaurants busiest days of the year – most people would think we were mad.

But have a look at this little video and you’ll see all the fun we had along with our lovely team, Venessa, Veronica and Ryan, our dear Slow Food Friends and lots of new friends who took the time to find out about just a few of the things that get us excited.
