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.

    It was ok, service was good. Menu was quite limited, the choice of whiskies tastings was not very large considering other establishments we did go in the past in Scotland

    We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at the Amber Restaurant last Tuesday. The service was first class and we were impressed with both the amount of menu choice and the quality of the food, all for what was quite a reasonable price. My husband particularly enjoyed the 2 course special. The meal followed on nicely from a tour of the 'Whisky Experience' which I had arranged as part of my husband's birthday celebration. Many thanks.

    The staff at Amber restaurant were fantastic, very attentive but not too intrusive and very friendly. The food was excellent just what was needed after the whiskey tour, we had a variety of dishes from steak to Vegetarian all were cooked well and tasted lovely.

    My party of four thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our dinner at the Amber. The food was as good as we have ever eaten, the service attentive but never in our faces. The Scottish tapas, with wine/whiskey, were delicious, the cured salmon, my starter, exquisite. We had 4 different main courses and all were commented on as being to a very high standard. The wine menu, whilst not extensive offered some good wines; the whiskey menu was very extensive and the recommendations made very good.
