About Elliot's Restaurant - Apex
PA Christmas lunch celebration
We had our annual PA Christmas lunch at Elliots. Most of us have been before and chose this venue as it serves fantastic food, the service is excellent and it's a lovely venue with a pleasant ambience. The Christmas 3 course set-menu was delicious and it came with a complementary glass of prosecco each which was a lovely surprise. We also finished our 3-courses with the choice of tea or coffee. They also provided Christmas crackers and all of this for £25 a head. Amazing value.
Pre-theatre dinner with friend
Had a fantastic meal with my friend before heading off to the theatre. This has to be one of the best meal deals in Edinburgh. The food, drinks and service were first class as always. My seventh visit this year and can’t wait to return!
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.
