About Elliot's Restaurant - Apex
First visit to Elliot’s Restaurant, Apex Hotel...and it won’t be our last!
Elliot’s is so central to Edinburghs Christmas Market, Ice Rink and Big wheel as well as all the shopping stores.
We found the Wine and Dine deal excellent value. Various choices for each of the three courses. Recommend the Beer battered fish as well as the grilled,both lovely.If a sweet tooth...excellent Sticky Toffee with ice cream and Apple crumble.
Great Saturday lunch menu
All courses were really lovely, the chocolate and raspberry fondant was one of the best. The only downside for us was that the bar and restaurant was very cold and the heating wasn't on, cold radiators
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.
