An oasis of calm elevated over the bustle of Prices Street, Restaurant 100 at Royal Overseas League showcases contemporary Scottish cuisine. A plush observation bar offers magnificent views over the city and the world-famous Edinburgh castle.

Showcasing the finest Scottish ingredients and time-honoured cooking techniques, rich, warming flavours are weaved through the Restaurant 100 menu. Favourites include Rannoch smoked beef with quince jelly, or a simmering mussel and onion stew. For a French-style flourish, guests can watch the expert Restaurant 100 waiters flambé a retro crepe suzette at their table.

For true Scottish-style indulgence, creative desserts include glayva & heather honey parfait with berries, or dark chocolate & Cointreau mousse with buttery Cobbs shortbread. The epitome of refinement, a delicious afternoon tea range is also served at Restaurant 100 Edinburgh.

    Very disappointing. The food was "ordinary" in the worst sense of that word. The lamb was over cooked and had then been reheated. The vegetables were overlooked to the point of sogginess. The gravy was very thin with hardly any flavour.

    My sister and I had an excellent afternoon tea with great service and a choice of dining room thank you

    The building was old and a bit tired. Very relaxed. View excellent and blinds were fitted to combat any sunshine shining straight onto your face. Soup and fish courses were good but stroganoff was not stroganoff but various mushrooms in a sauce accompanied by rice stack. Mushrooms were very chewy. Unable to swallow them. Needed more cooking although sauce was tasty. Had to leave them. Staff very pleasant and friendly.

    I had an excellent tuna steak. I did comment to the waiter that, for coelic sufferers, the immediate reaction to the menu was that all of the starters, desserts and 4 out of the five main courses (including the special) contained gluten. Full marks for the clarity re allergens and the waiter did say many of the dishes could be adapted. My 3 companions were all happy. Sorry to see so few diners, particularly given your setting, service and prices.

    Hard to find in the building, lots of nooks and crannies and small corridors before getting to the restaurant. Food was excellent, waitress very helpful and pleasant and quick to respond. However, there was a hoover with the electrical cable lying right at the door to the restaurant and a big hazard to anyone not looking down at their feet, I almost got tangled in it. Restaurant 100 felt quite uninviting, tables plain and just too open, didn't like seeing the coat rack in full view!!!! Of course the view of the Castle etc was spectacular.

    My wife and her friend arrived 2 hours early for their table but were made very welcome by the staff. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and terrific views over Princess Street and the castle. My wife and friend were there for afternoon tea and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service and food were excellent with more than enough for both and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

    Great afternoon tea was scrummy. Views were great and everything served in vintage tea cups! Super!

    A friend and I had festive lunch at 1 pm. We had a main course and sweet with tea and mince pies. The turkey I had was very nice but the brussel sprouts had been frozen. The Christmas pudding was very stodgy and it was swimming in custard. The mince pies were mostly pastry with only a minimal amount of mincemeat. Staff were friendly but would not go back.
