In an impressive Georgian building, Turquoise Thistle Restaurant at Hotel Indigo offers elegant Scottish cuisine and supreme fish and seafood. Expansive sash windows fill the dining room with light, and offer views out onto historic Edinburgh.

Sourcing supreme produce, the Turquoise menu spans from moreish breakfasts and lunches, through to refined dinner. Premium meat cuts are served from the sizzling grill, including succulent 35-day aged Buccleuch steaks, or grilled fish of the day from the freshest catches. Creative treats for dessert at Turquoise restaurant in Edinburgh include the Turquoise tuck shop filled with retro cakes and sweets, or chocolate and salted caramel fondant with pistachio ice cream.

An innovative afternoon tea showcases Thistle’s very own tea blend, delicious twists on traditional finger sandwiches, dainty macarons, fruit tarts and traditional Scottish shortbread. Ultra-modern cocktails and fine wines are served at the Thistle bar, which guests can enjoy in the vibrant 60’s-style lounge.

Set in a beautifully-restored hotel in Edinburgh’s New Town, the Hotel Indigo restaurant is found 8 minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station.

    Great food, great service and great value

    Very modern, clean, tidy restaurant, the service was good and I felt it overall to be good value for a city centre location.
    The high tea was yummy with many delicious savoury items in place of finger sandwiches.
    We had the dining room to ourselves for the whole time we were there; it's a pity it was not busier on a Sunday afternoon. We will return and are planning our next booking.

    Very nice and comfortable surroundings. Food very nice and a bit different to the usual afternoon tea. Service very good and friendly. Toilets very clean and well stocked.

    The food was gorgeous. The cocktails were delicious. The staff were fantastic. The atmosphere was chilled. And yet the prices were standard! I can't wait to come back. I will definitely be recommending this place.

    This was my second visit to Indigo Restaurant and my husbands first for afternoon tea, and he was impressed as I was on my first visit both with the food and the service from the young men who attended to us. We will definitely return again and I have mentioned it to several of our friends to visit the Indigo Restaurant.

    Went here for afternoon tea with a voucher deal and food, service and value was first class. After our glass of prosecco we ordered a full bottle and spent a very enjoyable afternoon without being rushed - will definitely be back!

    The restaurant itself was pleasant, the starter wasn't bad but I ordered sirloin steak and ended up with sirloin fat.....half the piece of meat was fat....very surprised it was thought ok to serve this up in the first place....
