Need restaurants off Princes street or Royal Mile in Edinburgh also Highland day tours

Hi all. I'm taking my Mother to Edinburgh for 2 days and I need some restaurant ideas for the evening. Nothing that will break the bank like The Witchery. I have been several times before but mostly for weddings so we got quick eats or ate at friends houses. I might take her to Darios for 1 meal as I love their food (Italian) but I would like to find a place off Princes street. Not TGI Fridays etc. I am staying at the Castle view or the Apex City if the Late rooms.com rate goes down.

Also anyone do a day bus tour to the Highlands? If so who would you recommend? My Scottish friend said it will still be scenic even though its Feb.

I don't know how big your bank is! But we love Martin's , Rose street North Lane. Rose Street is just behind Princes St, an North Lane is a circular lane that runs off of Rose.
Best cheese board in Edinburgh!

If you are in the mood for a pub, try Deacon Brodie's Tavern, 435 Lawnmarket, on the Royal Mile. Very good pub food with a great atmosphere. Serving from 12 noon until midnight everyday.
