We ate in the Brasserie on our first night in the hotel the soup was terrible and we both left it it was supposed to be vegetable broth but it was mostly barley and lentils and had the consistency of wall paper paste. Our main course was better but the roasted vegetables were very sweet, we only ate there for... More

I visited this place for an evening meal, as I was staying in the hotel. A fairly small restaurant which requires booking in advance. My starter of ham hock terrine was nice. My risotto was a little disappointing but main cheesecake desert was the best part, well presented and delicious. Service was good but as the restaurant got busier, it... More

Visited on a 2 course meal deal. Came on a Saturday evening and restaurant relatively busy, filled up as the meal progressed. Two steak fillets, both medium and pepper sauce. Steaks were really lovely and both of us enjoyed. Followed by two deserts of sticky toffee pussing, delicious. Overall, a great kick start to our weekend. One negative is how... More

We went to the Terrace Restaurant for dinner after visiting the Holyrood Palace. Since we were early, the restaurant was not full and we were seated immediately. We ordered the smoked duck appetiser, rib-eye steak with potato wedges, chicken fillet, and the toffee pudding with vanilla ice-cream for dessert. The smoked duck appetiser was delicious. The rib-eye steak was tasty... More

We have lived in Edinburgh for 20 years and this was the worst dinning experience ever in the city. It is such a pity as the room overlooks a lovely garden and it could be a fantastic place to eat. When we arrived at 1pm on a Sunday the 2 staff on duty were not ready. They were still laying... More

Stayed at the Crowne Plaza and desided to try the terrace restaurant and thank god we did. The Pheasant starter was cooked perfect and the Salmon main meal was delightful, plenty of red wine selection for a 5 star eaterie. Will be back on next visit to Edinburgh.

Its too expensive for what it is. The communal dining, i.e. sharing tables, is fine in a cheaper cafe style place, but doesn't really work when they try to move upmarket. The food was OK, nothing special but quite tasty. I think they would do better and be better reviewed if they lowered prices and concentrated on being a good... More

Having eaten at his Leith restaurant and Loch Loch lomandwe thought it was a safe bet. The atmosphere was pretentious and drab. Although the food was well presented it was poorly cooked and of poor quality, the cost was high enough for good food never mind poor. Rack of lamb especially poor. We made our concerns known but to no... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
