A stunning piece of Edinburgh history, The Brasserie sits inside the converted 160-year-old church Glasshouse Hotel. Its floor to ceiling windows offer amazing views of Carlton Hill, there is a tranquil rooftop garden, and traditional afternoon teas to enjoy.

The Brasserie menu focuses on wholesome Scottish dining made with regional ingredients, with inventive flourishes. Flavoursome starters include slow-cooked leg and roasted breast of Perthshire wood pigeon with gooseberry and Edinburgh gin chutney and watercress porridge. There is fresh seafood like pink peppercorn and cardamom crumbed stone bass with potato dumplings, as well as a succulent grill selection.

Inventive desserts feature creations like strawberry mousse with pistachio crumb and prosecco granita, and there is an inviting snug bar area that boasts tremendous wine and fine whisky menus. Afternoon teas at The Brasserie Edinburgh include all the classic sweet and savoury additions, and during the summer there are picnics in the 2-acre rooftop garden.

Filled with history, and with a great range of luxurious areas to drink, dine and relax in, The Brasserie sits 8 minutes from Edinburgh Waverley Rail Station.

    It was nice having the dining area all to ourselves. We also thought the service and savory dishes were excellent. We were disappointed with the sweets. As we were the only group, the scones seemed old and tasted overbaked. Also, the cherry cake was slightly burnt. For the price, which was similar to what was paid at the Merchant Hotel in Belfast (by far a superb experience), we would not recommend this tea service.

    Amazing meal and great service. This is the second time we have visited and we live it. The only thing I would say is maybe they could vary the menu. Also more signs for the restuarant would be helpful.

    We arrived at Reception and were escorted to the Lounge Bar, which was a really nice touch. There were no seats available, but we enjoyed walking round the gardens with lovely views over Edinburgh, till a table was free. We were served some Champagne and were then escorted to the Restaurant, which had a nice relaxed atmosphere. Tables were set well with unusual cutlery.
    We had booked a 5 course tasting menu and the food was excellent. Every course was presented well with very generous portions.
    We waited a while for our 3rd course, but the waitress apologised for the delay and very quickly rectified the situation. The main course was our favourite - the lamb was tasty and tender. But all courses were equally good. The Wine selection was good but drinks incurred a 10% service charge.
    The staff in the Restaurant were friendly, helpful and very attentive.
    Our only complaint happened at the end of our dining experience. Other diners appeared to be receiving coffee and petit fours. I asked the waitress if this should have been included with our meal and she apologised and said yes. She suggested going up to the Lounge Bar and requesting coffee from the Bar Manager. He said he would organise this, but after waiting over 20 minutes ,we decided to leave. Priority appeared to be given to diners ordering alcoholic drinks.
    He apologised and said he would take it up with the Restaurant staff.
    This slightly spoiled a very good evening, as we feel a simple thing like serving our coffee and petit fours would have completed the 5* treatment, we had previously received.
    I have emailed the Restaurant regarding this, but to date have not received any feedback.
    However this would not deter us from returning, as the food and service in the Restaurant was excellent. We would recommend the Glasshouse Braaerie to our family and friends.

    Had a voucher for the 5 course taster menu which was a great chance to dine out in this lovely restaurant. Had a welcome drink in the snug and a wander around the roof garden. So quiet when you think how busy the roads are on the other side of hotel. Meal was lovely and can't fault any aspect of it. Staff chatty and helpful especially Pilar.

    Will definitely book again as 10 minute walk from my house.
