Rhubarb Review

  • Rating Rating 4/5
    The only restaurant in Edinburgh that can rival its sister restaurant, The Witchery, for sheer opulence, Rhubarb is the house restaurant of Prestonfield House hotel, an extraordinary building that resembles the most luxurious of country manors but is jarringly situated in the middle of a rather typical suburb a couple of miles from the city centre. This odd juxtaposition is reflected in the quality of food served at Rhubarb, which sadly is yet to match the swagger and grandeur (and price) of the restaurant itself. An open lasagne of veal and chicken liver was disappointingly bland and infuriatingly mean with the amount of liver, although a deliciously gooey French onion soup with Gruyere was a redeeming factor. In any case, the chief appeal to many will be the chance to enjoy the magnificence of one of the many lavish dining or drinking rooms, and a two course pre-theatre menu makes the chance to live a king or a queen for a couple of hours a little more achievable.
