A stunning piece of Edinburgh history, The Observatory Restaurant 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 Observatory 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 Observatory Restaurant 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 Observatory Restaurant sits 8 minutes from Edinburgh Waverley Rail Station.

    We had a voucher for the tasting menu with a pre-dinner glass of champagne. The pre-dinner drinks area was lovely but the 'champagne' was not cold enough and I think it was just sparkling wine. Our meal was fine, but not spectacular until we came to the desserts. Make sure you keep that pastry chef! I would have been very disappointed if we had paid the full price. The circular glass around the restaurant does not really work at night but the rest of the restaurant has a nice ambience.

    Interesting hotel development. Long walk through hotel to tastefully decorated restaurant. Quiet, seated by impressive windows but sadly no night time view of city due to 'bronze effect of glass.
    Five course Tasting menu was delicious, different and imaginative. .. some with Scottish slant: duck with potato scone! All dishes were tasty with an interesting sweet based on three favourite chocolates of the chef: caramac,aero and rolo.Enjoyed champagne too!

    From the minute we arrived until we left, we had a first class dining experience. The staff were extremely helpful and polished and made us feel relaxed and welcome especially as we were not residents.
    The food was fabulous. We had the 5 course tasting menu with a glass of Perrier Jouet on arrival. The wine we had with the meal was wonderful.
    A truly excellent meal.

    The dinner was nice but cold. The staff were pleasant but disorganised and took 15 minutes to come to our table to take a drink order. The restaurant itself was hidden away in the back of the hotel meaning you have to walk through two long corridors of rooms before you even get to it. We were sat beside a big distorted mirror instead of a window which did not in any way meet up to the websites advertisement of good views. In my opinion this restaurant should be for hotel guests only and should not offer itself to the public as it is not set up for public use. Considering the large bill at the end I would have expected a whole more from this restaurant and it did not deliver. I will not be recommending this restaurant to friends.
