About Elliot's Restaurant - Apex
Will definitely be back!
Went with my partner after seeing a friend's pics on Facebook. We had the wine n dine for £40,and have to say it was lovely and well worth the money. Our waiter was friendly, funny and attentive without being "in your face". The place was quiet but lovely surroundings, food excellent 😀.I had haggis bonbons,fish and chips and vanilla ice-cream. Partner had filo wrapped feta, burger n chips and cheese board.. We shared the ice-cream and cheese board and enjoyed ever course. The batter in the fish was nice n crispy as it should be and both of us have said we can't wait to return. If you get the chance I'd say take it and you won't be disappointed. Not just our waiter but all the staff were welcoming and ever so friendly x
From start to finish our experience was fantastic.
This was a last minute find and what an excellent find it was!
When it came to service, food and value for money the Apex excels.
We will be back asap and have already told family and friends how good it was.
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.
