The food was amazing. Quite a find. The chef is very talented and the staff made some fantastic drink recommendations that paired well with the food. We ordered both the regular and the vegan tasting and all the food was a 10/10. This is the best meal we had on our trip to the UK.

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.

    Myself and 3 friends visited Amber having reviewed a number of authentic Scottish restaurants in the area. We arrived around 6pm and greeted by a team of very friendly and attentive staff. Each of us chose the 'Taste of Scotland' menu (1 vegetarian) which was stunning, and great value at £36. Beautifully presented dishes and fantastic flavour combinations, each item explained by our waiter who also gave us a whiskey tasting tutorial!
    Wine list was varied and reasonably, and the whole experience was flawless, laid back and highly enjoyable.
    I will definitely recommend!
