Amber is the restaurant in the Scotch Whisky Experience near Edinburgh Castle. The resto has been making a name for itself for good quality Scottish food so we tried it in May 2010. A short menu – always, I think, a good sign. The whisky connection is very obvious – lots of single malts and whisky cocktails. My pre-dinner drink was an 18-year old Macallan and my wife and daughters all had whisky based cocktails (which were pronounced moreish). For food, I had goats cheese and wild garlic pate to start followed by fillet steak. the steak was perfectly cooked but a bit lacking in flavour – maybe this is just a characteristic of the cut. Very reasonably priced (for a restaurant) Sangiovese wine. Friendly staff and good service – we’d be happy to go back.
Visited May 2010. About £45 each but could have been cheaper if we’d avoided the expensive whisky cocktails.
