Edinburgh's International and Fringe festivals kick off this weekend and theatregoers, comedy-lovers, writers, directors and performers in their thousands will descend on the Scottish capital in search of great writing, hilarious comedy, new experiences and - yes - tasty food.

Finding the best place to fill the gap, both temporal and abdominal, is essential when mapping out your festival schedule. Sometimes you will have only a short break to grab a bite, while other times you will have a good few hours to indulge in one of Edinburgh's fine restaurants.
