Showcasing the talents of culinary-impassioned brothers Chris and Jeff, Galvin Brasserie de Luxe offers exquisite French brasserie dining. A buzzing crustacean bar stands at the centre, serving the freshest local seafood catches.

Sourcing the best in Scottish produce and incorporating a rich French twist, favourites from the Brasserie de Luxe menu include duck breast, boudin noir, salad lyonnaise & steak tartare maison. Guests can dine in the main dining room amongst glossy bistro furnishings and swathes of indigo leather, or at the polished bar for a more casual vibe.

An expertly sourced wine list complements the rich flavours of the dishes, and a sterling menu of French-style indulgences includes apple tarte tatin with crème fraîche.

Set in the majestic Waldorf Hotel, this Galvin restaurant in Edinburgh offers sumptuous continental flavours in a chic setting. Edinburgh Haymarket Rail Station is a 10-minute walk away. Please note, the seasonal menu is only available 6pm – 7pm Friday and Saturday.

    Unfortunately our steaks were overcooked and the service was quite slow.

  • (((** 19 April 2017 by Barry Wilson from Edinburgh

    Delicious food but the service wasn't as good as we've had in the past.

    First table offered was behind a pillar and near the toilets - in a two thirds empty restaurant. Glass of prosecco "on arrival" not served until we asked for it as first course came. Food was very ordinary and my beef main course was completely inedible. Replaced by my choice of cheese (2 minute slivers of cheddar and a 3cm square of blue, 4 small wafers of cracker). I was then charged for 3 courses instead of 2. When I remarked that a good restaurant would not have charged at all, my meal was removed from the bill. The servers were pleasant but service was so slow, our lunch took nearly 2 hours. No one seemed to be in charge. No apologies or explanation for the slowness of the kitchen in a nearly empty restaurant. General impression that nobody cared much about the customer.

    Enjoyable as ever. The sweet corn veloute was well made, delicate and presented excellently whilst our regular favourite imam bayaldi was as expected. The coly and be cod were cooked perfectly and the rhubarb soufflé, well was great

    Suggest you arrive a little early and enjoy a drink in the hotel it's self, lovely surroundings. The restaurant is well staffed and they are really keen for you to have lovely time. The food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. I would strongly recommend the haddock and crispy egg starter it's excellent. The main course options on the pre 7pm menu are a bit limited but that would be expected, lamb shank is a good choice.

    Steak was excellent! Friendly staff also.

  • ((((* 22 March 2017 by Yvonne Dawe from Edinburgh

    The food and service are excellent. Lamb shank delicious and fish also excellent. Servers are prompt and courteous, food arrived in a timely manner. The ambience is so/so, rather businesslike. If you stick to the set menu the cost is very reasonable, but stray outside it and it becomes very expensive very quickly.

    The dishes and the drinks are horribly over-priced. You get charged £5 for water, then they include VAT and service charges and don't warn you about it in advance. I had to pay twice what I was planning on oaying because of the THREE charges that were not mentioned beforehand. I would never go back there or recommend it to anyone.
