We received a warm welcome as we arrived, we had already decided to try the Scottish taster menu when we booked. It was explained to us and we were given a drinks menu. Every course was cooked to perfection and tasted delicious. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

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.

    Amber restaurant is just a wonderful place to spent time - Are you in to a great dining experience and whisky, this IS the place, before you keep on joying the greatnes of old Edinburgh. All time favourite at lunchtime are their Haggis, Scottish tapas and cheese. Every time we are in Edinburgh, we have to be at Amber restaurant at least a couple times. Looking forward to be back this Christmas. Amber restaurant - Worth every penny.
