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.

Delicious food! Service was a little slow.

We have been regular visitors at The Amber over the years and always enjoy our meals there. We were celebrating my husband’s 70th birthday and the food, wine and whiskies were excellent. We had a selection from the Menu ie steak, lamb, duck, sea bass, sea trout and the children's Tapas for our three year old granddaughter. Everything was cooked to perfection and the service excellent. Thank you to Billy and his team. (Sorry I have forgotten the other Manager’s name).

Really enjoyed our dinner with friends at Amber; the location near the Castle is evocative; the ambience very comfortable and warm, the service attentive, food excellent, and the ability for the whisky-lovers among our group to pair their dinner with whisky was fun. The haggis 'small pot' was the best haggis we've had, and the duck and lamb were among the best we had on our extended trip to Scotland. Highly recommend Amber.

It was amazing time with my husband. The dinner was a surprise for his birthday :) Everything was as I planned. Food was delicious and we were excited of trying different kind of whisky. I can recommend this place.

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.

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!
