The trio will join eateries Busaba Eathai and Drake & Morgan at the prime site in the city centre. The £75 million project is a joint venture between Standard Life Investments and developer Peveril Securities.

David Stewart, manager of the Standard Life Investments Pooled Pension Property Fund, said: “These lettings demonstrate the strong appeal of the South St Andrew Square development and Edinburgh as a destination for international restaurants as they look to expand outside of London.

“We’re confident [it] will become the prime destination for top-quality dining in Edinburgh.”
