About Elliot's Restaurant - Apex
My friend and I were having a catch up and were happy to have a relaxed evening. The staff were apologetic because a large party was in and this affected how quickly we were served, but this wasn't an issue for us. The food was amazing and the deal was immensely good value. At the end we were given a glass of wine on the house due to the booking issue and serving delay that we weren't really aware of! Fantastic service, lovely staff who really made it a great evening for us. They went above and beyond and are a credit to the Apex. We'll definitely be returning.
Great Service and wonderful food
Really enjoyed our visit will definitely be back! Thank you
Stylish city centre restaurant
Elliot’s Bar & Restaurant is part of Apex Waterloo Place Hotel in Edinburgh city centre. Its bright, modern design blends seamlessly with period features such as the corniced ceilings and Georgian windows and fireplace. Extremely well located on Waterloo Place, Elliot’s Bar and Restaurant lends itself to business lunches, pre-theatre dinners; a mid-afternoon shopping stop, after work drinks or a romantic dinner.
Scottish and international dishes
Elliot’s utilises locally sourced and season-specific ingredients to craft healthy breakfasts, light lunches, hearty pre-theatre meals and a stellar a la carte dinner menu. The kitchen takes a playful approach to Scottish cooking with dishes like the red lentil haggis spring roll. Other dishes put a twist on European classics.
The menus change regularly but typical examples might be the peppered beef fillet tail with pickled white cabbage, Swiss cheese croquette, rye bread wafer and a wheat beer sauce or the orange spiced pulled duck leg with duck liver, brioche and quince jelly. Among the desserts, the deconstructed chocolate hazelnut cheesecake with cherry brandy sauce has many admirers.
city centre attractions and transport
Elliot’s Bar & Restaurant is on Waterloo Place at the east end of Edinburgh’s Princes Street. Waverley rail station is a five minute walk and the tram line is ten minutes away. There is limited on-street parking and some pay parking at Calton Hill. Nearby attractions include Edinburgh Playhouse and the shops of Mulberry Walk and the St James Centre.
