The item has since been removed and taken away by detectives who will try to assess what it was.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland described how officers in the capital were called to the restaurant at around 10.20am following a report of “a suspicious item being found in a bathroom cubicle.”
“Officers are currently in attendance and patrons have left the building as a precaution while the item is assessed,” she added.
The developments come just hours before former Take That star Robbie Williams takes to Murrayfield Stadium for a one-night-only, sold-out gig.
Police Scotland had earlier told those heading through to the capital: “We wish everyone a safe and enjoyable concert.”
