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.

    The food and service was lovely but the restaurant lacked atmosphere due to the lack of other diners. At one point we were the only people in the restaurant.

    Had Afternoon Tea with my friend Janet. It was a pre-birthday outing for Janets Birthday. We were treated very well from the moment of arrival to leaving. Very courteous and friendly staff throughout. The Afternoon Tea was delicious. So nice to have something different, instead of the usual finger sandwich offerings, and nice delicate sweet treats made in house. The chef's handmade Scottish Macaroons were gorgeous and took me right back to my younger years. Our only criticisms, in fact not criticisms but comments are that the savouries would have been nice warm and a little chutney as an accompaniment would have enhanced the flavours but overall delicious.

    I was really looking to the pre theatre menu but sadly we were disappointed in the food.

    Overall we had a great evening with attentive staff, tasty food and a really good range of wines. We were dining from a set Hogmanay menu and one of the party do not eat scallops. They produced a special dish of cured salmon that was quite frankly the best dish of the evening. The service felt a little rushed. When enjoying a 5 course meal, the pace is very important to ensure that you get to savour and enjoy, this wasn't always the case. Also the dessert sadly was burnt which was a shame as it had the ability to be a great dish. Looking across the restaurant, this was standard.

    Waiters were very good. Fish course was favourite

    Was treating a friend to afternoon tea. We were not disappointedfromt he moment we entered the building we were greeted by a very helpful gentleman who escorted us to the part of the hotel which serves afternoon tes. We were then served by a very pleasant and attentive young woman. Nothing was too much trouble and my friend and I both enjoyed the different take on 'afternoon tea. Everything was fresh and delicious. My friend and I both agreed that we would return and perhaps have an evening meal or a lunch
    Thank -you

    Had a prosecco afternoon tea. The savoury food was fine but the sweet food was disappointing. The scones were tiny and the cream was not clotted cream as expected. The gingerbread men were burnt and hard so we couldn't eat them. Service was ok but not what I expected for the price paid. This was booked as a special treat and my son and I were disappointed.
