A stunning piece of Edinburgh history, The Brasserie sits inside the converted 160-year-old church Glasshouse Hotel. Its floor to ceiling windows offer amazing views of Carlton Hill, there is a tranquil rooftop garden, and traditional afternoon teas to enjoy.

The Brasserie menu focuses on wholesome Scottish dining made with regional ingredients, with inventive flourishes. Flavoursome starters include slow-cooked leg and roasted breast of Perthshire wood pigeon with gooseberry and Edinburgh gin chutney and watercress porridge. There is fresh seafood like pink peppercorn and cardamom crumbed stone bass with potato dumplings, as well as a succulent grill selection.

Inventive desserts feature creations like strawberry mousse with pistachio crumb and prosecco granita, and there is an inviting snug bar area that boasts tremendous wine and fine whisky menus. Afternoon teas at The Brasserie Edinburgh include all the classic sweet and savoury additions, and during the summer there are picnics in the 2-acre rooftop garden.

Filled with history, and with a great range of luxurious areas to drink, dine and relax in, The Brasserie sits 8 minutes from Edinburgh Waverley Rail Station.

    Excellent service attentative without being overwhelming. 5 course taster menu was first class although we thought he lamb was a little on the chewy side and for us, not cooked enough but that is just our taste.

    This was the first time at the Glasshouse. The reception was fantastic, really helpful. The food was fantastic. The best dish was the lamb, was cooked very well and the flavours worked. The only criticism of the food was the soup. Didn't like the burnt cheese, smelt like burnt hair. It spoiled the soup. The restaurant was very nice and it was very welcoming. The service was good and they acomadated us very well. My other criticisms was at the bar up stair after our meal. I do not appreciate being pushed the the bill and being made to feel unwelcome and I am keeping someone from going home. That kind of spoiled the evening a little. All in all good value for money.

    Great welcome, very helpful and friendly staff ....But I paid for and was expecting a tasting menu...more unusual food combinations with descriptions of what we were about to eat...Instead was an ok meal but uninspiring

    Enjoyed the tasting menu very much. Food was well prepared and presented. Staff were very attentive and pleasant. Enjoyed Champagne and coffee in the upstairs lounge and enjoyed a walk around the roof garden

    From start to finish the five course tasting menu was excellent. The attention to detail was first class. Loved our evening at The Glasshouse and will definitely visit again.

    Lovely selection of varied savouries and cakes. I particularly enjoyed the fact that there was not s heavy onus of creamy type cakes. Biscuits, truffles and small cake items were ideal

    First time trying the restaurant with a friend. Very friendly welcome and throughout the meal - always great to see staff who enjoy their workplace and can have a laugh with colleagues as well as guests. My friend forgot to mention her gluten allergy during booking process however catered for without fuss. Delicious food and wine. Will definitely be returning soon and have already recommended. Thank you for a lovely evening!
