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.

    Food was very good.

  • (((** 21 March 2017 by Linda Craig from Edinburgh

    Lovely food and staff but strange hotel layout and dark brown everywhere made it feel like entering a secret society! Restaurant would benefit from being more accessible without a minder to accompany diners. Bar also rather oppressive decor and no windows. But food and wine excellent.

    Had 5 course taster menu. Enjoyed every dish, nice atmosphere even though restaurant was quiet. Staff were especially good. Nice area upstairs sitting around the fire

    Myself and my partner did not enjoy the food at all although we could not fault the service. The soup barely covered the bottom of the bowl and the pate was watery and tasted odd. The main course of lamb was ot served pink as we were advised, and was an extremely stingy portion. Both the pear tarts were burnt and inedible. We will not be back.

    Beautiful decor, very calm ambience. Food delicious and presentation delightful. Staff polite and friendly, they made us feel very special. Really enjoyed my visit and I hope to dine in this wonderful restaurant again soon. My favourite was the lamb, absolutely delicious. Compliments to the chef, and the staff behind the scenes.

    Had a pre theatre meal here and the food was excellent and the staff service was great.
    If I had any sort of negative about the experience it would be with the restaurant itself, while of a very high standard lacked a bit of intimacy. The decor was very corporate and the lighting just a bit too bright.
    Overall though it was a very enjoyable meal.
