Food & Drink

Food and drink in a light-soaked luxury five-star hotel

Simple, fresh and local — that’s the approach to food at The Glasshouse Hotel, in an elegantly designed glass-walled restaurant, the Observatory, in view of dramatic Calton Hill. Our seasonal menus bring something new to the Edinburgh dining scene, with afternoon tea & dinner available at our discreet locale in the city centre, and from July 2016 we are offering indulgent picnics on our exclusive rooftop garden!


Dining in Edinburgh at the new Observatory restaurant

Our Observatory Restaurant offers sumptuous evening meals between 5pm and 9:30pm in a dining room featuring comfy armchairs and upholstered benches of forest and Paris green. Menus serve contemporary Scottish cuisine. Selected meat is supplied by Campbell Brothers, based less than 10 miles from The Glasshouse, while fish and seafood is sourced from quaysides on both the Atlantic Ocean and North Sea.

The Observatory Restaurant is open for residents and non-residents alike, Tuesday to Saturday, between 5pm and 9:30pm. For hotel guests, our cosy and exclusive Snug is also available on Sunday and Mondays. Please note, dining spaces are subject to availability.
