About Elliot's Restaurant - Apex
2nd time visiting!
My partner and I have now been here twice for the "Wine n Dine" menu, at a cost of £40 for 3 courses and a bottle of wine it can't be beaten. The portions are a good size (my fish was huge) and all extremely tasty. The staff were pleasant and attentive and nothing too much trouble for them.
We will definitely be back for more and the fact it was a beautiful day meant we could sit outside after watching the world go by.
Probably one of the best afternoon teas I’ve been too. The food was top quality and lots of selections of cakes. Can’t fault them at all, will definitely be back.
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.
