About Elliot's Restaurant - Apex
Fantastic food find in the heart of the city!
Last minute booking and couldn’t of been more delighted. Party of 8 were all very impressed with the menu, service and value for money. Will definitely go back on out next visit to Edinburgh 😀
From the first minute the staff were brilliant. Lovely feeling in the restaurant and at 7pm the lighting is dimmed slightly so no harsh lighting which is nice. The menu was excellent and the service could not have been any better. The food lived up to the description and tasted great.Would definitely go back and would recommend to our friends.
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.
