The first Scottish venture for impassioned brothers Chis and Jeff, The Pompadour by Galvin offers stunning French fine dining. Guests can lounge with expertly mixed aperitifs in the speciality Pompadour cocktail salon.

Blending the finest Scottish produce and a pioneering French cooking style, signature dishes from the Pompadour menu include roast Scottish Chateaubriand, violet artichokes, ratte potatoes & garlic cream or apple tarte tatin to share.

Over their careers, the Galvin restaurant brothers have gained awards including 2 Michelin stars, 10 AA Rosettes, and were named Chefs’ Chef of the Year in 2011. First opened in 1925, The Pompadour in Edinburgh was inspired by the lavish leanings of Louis XV’s chief mistress.

The stunning Renaissance-style dining room is recognised as one of Edinburgh’s finest, with corniced ceilings, ethereal murals and rich velvet swept throughout. The shopper’s delights of Princes Street are just 2 minutes’ walk from The Pompadour restaurant. Please note, the restaurant observes a smart casual dress code.

    The setting is pretty unique, and I thin they have done a great job of making such a big space convivial to a fantastic dining experience. Service was wonderful. The wine list was excellent and the food as stunning as you would expect.
