Showcasing a cellar of over 400 malt whiskies alongside gourmet Scottish cuisine, Amber Restaurant is the pride of Edinburgh’s renowned Scotch Whisky Experience. Spectacular glowing glass cabinets contain the array of blends, offering a superb experience for both whisky connoisseurs and novices.

An eclectic range of dishes are served on the Amber menu, with Scottish tapas served alongside boldly flavoured main courses. Enjoy comforting pots of smoked seafood chowder, haggis, neeps & tatties and traditional lamb stovies, or griddled beef sirloin with whisky & shallot butter.

Whisky tasting menus offer a journey through Scotland’s most famous export, or seek a recommendation from the lengthy list from the learned staff at Amber Restaurant in Edinburgh. Paying homage to Scotland’s whisky heritage, bold dessert flavours include panna cotta with raspberry and whisky soup, or marmalade pudding with caramel sauce.

A truly revelatory experience, Amber teams an unrivalled cellar and supreme fine dining dishes. Edinburgh Waverley Station is an 8-minute walk away.

    Amazing dining experience in a cozy environment right in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle.

    Friendly and knowledgeable staff go above and beyond to make dining experience memorable and enjoyable.

    Highest quality food and an amazing whisky shelf make me wish I could dine here weekly.

    The crusted goat cheese starter dish and Shetland mussels pot were particularly flavorful and expertly prepared. The Asparagus and Pearl Barley Risotto was superb. I’d visit again even if that were the only dish on the menu. And the sirloin was cooked to perfection.

    The staff’s whisky recommendations for pairing elevated the meal even higher.

    If you get to Edinburgh, visit Amber. You won’t be disappointed.

    After trying for lunch last year, visiting Amber again while here this year was top of our list. Food and whisky is great and the staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable. If I lived in Edinburgh, I'd be eating at Amber frequently.

    All in all the experience was first class. We were made very welcome when we arrived. The menu offered good choices, the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful on everything we asked about the dishes and the portion sizes. The food was delicious and we were made to feel very welcome. There was no rushing us at all and we were in the restaurant for a good few hours. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. The staff especially were lovely.

    The food was amazing. Everyone enjoyed each of their 3 courses. The Lamb main and the cheesecake were so good. Staff were helpful with choosing a whiskey, given we were mostly novices. Only issue was that they were very slow at taking orders, particularly for a Monday night. We were not in any rush but would not have expected to be there for 3 and half hours. At least the food came out in reasonable time after orders were taken.
