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.

Dined here as a party of eight after the Scotland / Ireland Rugby with 6 Irish guests. Had a wonderful evening. Food was excellent and the service was friendly and attentive. Great whisky bar for after dinner with knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Brilliant, second time we’ve eaten here when visiting Scotland. We love the modern decor and atmosphere. The staff are so nice and the manager even remembered us from a visit two years ago! We love the food, my starter (mussels) were fantastic and we love the little casserole/stovie pots. My sons Vension was delicious. We like to order ‘a flight’ of whiskeys with our meal and the staff are so knowledgeable. Just a superb place! We’ll be going back again in a year or so.

A lovely meal with great service. My favorite part was tasting a few drams of whisky in the bar. The barman was very knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommended.
