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.

We had a beautiful meal to celebrate my birthday, food was excellent as was the service from Billy & Grace, this was the second time we have ate here and would definitely be back the next time we visit Edinburgh. Highly recommend Amber and not forgetting the huge whisky selection.

We visit Edinburgh yearly, & Amber is a perennial favorite. The food, the service, the knowledgeable staff who advise on pairings of whisky & food--all are outstanding.

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!
