We are licensed but also operate a BYOB policy if you would prefer to bring your own wine. A small corkage charge will be applied. We recommend that you book your table in advance especially for Friday's and Saturday's. As we are very small the maximum booking that we can accommodate is for 6 people. We regret that due to licensing restrictions we are unable to admit children under the age of 5.

Open evenings only Wednesday - Saturday from 6pm

Katie's Diner was established in 2000 by Geoff and Kate Ness.

Over the years our reputation has grown and we have built up a large base of loyal customers. We have been recommended as one of the best American style restaurants in Edinburgh by "The List" magazine.

We have resisted pressure to expand, preferring instead to continue to offer you personal service as if you were in our own home with Kate cooking and Geoff serving.

We are especially proud of our steaks and burgers, sourcing the best Scottish beef available.

Situated on the edge of Bruntsfield Links, Katie's has one of the most beautiful views in the capital and when the sun goes down the cosy, inviting surroundings, warm welcome and Katie's home cooking will have you longing to come back.
