New website allows Edinburgh diners bid for meals

A new eBay style website,, has been launched in Edinburgh that allows diners to bid against each other for meals at top local restaurants.

Edinburgh's Malmaison hotel, the Montpellier group which includes Tigerlilly, Opal Lounge and Rick's and other independents such as First Coast, Vintners Rooms and the Mussel Inn have already signed up to the site.

Founder Sukhvir Dhillon, 31, from Glasgow, said: "The Edinburgh restaurant scene has experienced a culinary renaissance recently with a variety of different eating styles on offer and will help diners access different types of restaurants. Our website usually spurs people into being more adventurous by trying out places they wouldn't necessarily go to."

The Edinburgh launch follows the success of Glasgow-based, where more than12,000 diners have already signed up. Dhillon also plans to expand in London and other major UK cities.
