Showcasing a cellar of over 400 malt whiskies alongside gourmet Scottish cuisine, Amber Restaurant is the pride of Edinburgh’s renowned Scotch Whisky Experience. Spectacular glowing glass cabinets contain the array of blends, offering a superb experience for both whisky connoisseurs and novices.

An eclectic range of dishes are served on the Amber menu, with Scottish tapas served alongside boldly flavoured main courses. Enjoy comforting pots of smoked seafood chowder, haggis, neeps & tatties and traditional lamb stovies, or griddled beef sirloin with whisky & shallot butter.

Whisky tasting menus offer a journey through Scotland’s most famous export, or seek a recommendation from the lengthy list from the learned staff at Amber Restaurant in Edinburgh. Paying homage to Scotland’s whisky heritage, bold dessert flavours include panna cotta with raspberry and whisky soup, or marmalade pudding with caramel sauce.

A truly revelatory experience, Amber teams an unrivalled cellar and supreme fine dining dishes. Edinburgh Waverley Station is an 8-minute walk away.

    Good food, well cooked. Some inventiveness, although sometimes a bit unnecessary and sticking to the traditional way of serving haggis for example would have been better. Good children menu and good portion size too. Fantastic whisky selection. Prices good value at lunchtime. Service was a bit slow though, esp as we arrived at 12pm for lunch.

    Myself and my girlfriend were visiting Edinburgh for a short holiday. This was by far the best meal and service we had the whole time in Scotland! A very good atmosphere in the restaurant and some beautiful features. We were greeted as we came in and coats taken and then seated (the tables are well spaced so not overcrowd by other parties there). The waitress brought over menus and allowed drinks to be chosen as well as finding help for myself to get a whisky that suited me. The drinks came in good time and food came swiftly enough too. The whisky came and I asked for ice which was brought over straight away. Food was great and cooked very well. Ordered dessert as well and another whisky which came with ice - a nice touch to remember. When finished servers were grateful for a tip and escorted us out which was nice. A very good experience.
