Restaurant description

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.

    My friend and I were celebrating our 50th birthdays. I've been to Amber many times, but this was her first time. Although it was a damp and grey day outside, we enjoyed a lovely lunch. The great food and fantastic service really brightened up our afternoon. The relaxed atmosphere and warm welcome added to the experience. I was delighted that my friend thoroughly enjoyed the lunch as much as I did. Thank you, Amber, you did not disappoint!

    The staff were amazing and had a good knowledge of the whiskies on offer. The rump steak in whisky sauce was delicious.

    Good food, excellent service. We very enjoyed the traditional dishes in a mir modern interpretation. They found out that it was my birthday, only being with my husband. And I got a little speech and a creamy shortbread!

    My partner and I have visited Edinburgh twice in the last year and both times we have booked into the Amber restaurant chiefly in order to eat their vegetarian haggis which we love. However, as we now try to follow a vegan diet, we would have preferred a vegan haggis option. We also felt that the menu could be expanded to incorporate a wider selection vegetarian and vegan options.

    Me and my girlfriend dined here after taking the Scotch Whisky Experience tour. My girlfriend had a vegetarian meal for which both presentation and taste were excellent. I had a salmon dish, it looked a bit bland but tasted very good. Desert was delicious. Courteous and professional staff.
