Our Story

Chef Tom Kitchin, his wife and business partner Michaela along with their team have long been looking for the perfect site to bring a new exciting bistro venue to the south side of Edinburgh. After extensive refurbishment and renovations, Southside proudly opened its doors in November 2018. 

The menu at Southside Scran reflects Chef Kitchin and Chef Dominic Jack's sincere passion for seasonal produce and their shared love of France and its cuisine. The Rotisserie grill in the room presents diners with a daily selection of meat, fish and vegetables. The bistro setting encourages guests to share side dishes and salads with the entire table for that special family and friend approach to dining.

Head Chef Craig McKenzie, who has worked with Chef Kitchin for 7 years is heading up the kitchen team of chefs and Jonathan Demyttenaere, previously Restaurant Manager of The Kitchin is leading the Front of House team at Southside Scran.
