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.

    Service from reception to table waiting was exceptional. All the staff were VERY attentive. My wife & I enjoyed the ' Tasting Menu' - all 5 dishes were excellent.

    Not a very nice dining experience. Arrived at The Glasshouse reception and waited 10 minutes as both members of staff were busy checking in hotel guests. Eventually taken to the Snug Bar where we were welcomed with a glass of warm champagne then were left waiting to be taken to restuarant for another 30 minutes. We were the only guests left in the bar and eventually a member of staff appeared and took us along to the restuarant where we had to wait 5 minutes until a table was cleared for us. Our reservation was 7.30pm and it took until 8.25pm to be seated in restuarant and our drinks order to be taken. The restuarant staff were very nice but the time it took to serve the courses was too long. We eventually left the restuarant at 11pm. I must add that it wasn't a particularly busy evening. We both enjoy food and can honestly say the only course we enjoyed from the 5 course tasting menu was the main which was roasted chicken breast with duck fat roast potatoes and roasted parsnips and carrots, basically a roast dinner, which if thats what we had wanted we would have booked at Toby Carvery. The creme brulee was ok and was served with shortbread not the macaroon as stated and the amouse buche and previous courses don't even warrant a mention. We were both very dissapointed as we have stayed at The Glasshouse on a few occasions but never dined there before so we were looking forward to a nice dining experience. It is safe to say we will not dine there again and I would not recommend it to anyone.

    We enjoyed a lovely dining experience in lovely surroundings, served by courteous staff. The all round experience was apppreciated by everyone in the party. I particularly enjoyed the main course and the dessert but to be honest the whole menu was most enjoyable.

    Our waitress was from Lithuania, didn't catch her name, and she was excellent.

    The food and service was lovely but the restaurant lacked atmosphere due to the lack of other diners. At one point we were the only people in the restaurant.

    Had Afternoon Tea with my friend Janet. It was a pre-birthday outing for Janets Birthday. We were treated very well from the moment of arrival to leaving. Very courteous and friendly staff throughout. The Afternoon Tea was delicious. So nice to have something different, instead of the usual finger sandwich offerings, and nice delicate sweet treats made in house. The chef's handmade Scottish Macaroons were gorgeous and took me right back to my younger years. Our only criticisms, in fact not criticisms but comments are that the savouries would have been nice warm and a little chutney as an accompaniment would have enhanced the flavours but overall delicious.
