    Food was excellent. Personally I'm not a huge fan of plates of food you can stick in your eye, but I couldn't fault the quality

    Could do better

    We were a group of 7 and the only diners all night. Whilst the food was good, the smoked salmon starter did not come with any bread or salad. We asked for bread but were told we would be charged. As it happens we weren't charged but it was brought with no butter! My dish of shin of beef was melt in the mouth tender and tasty and the Merlot wine was very good and reasonably priced. The marketing folk need to work on this restaurant.

Modern European restaurant in Edinburgh city centre

The Lantern Room is an informal restaurant and bar on Baxter’s Place by Edinburgh Playhouse. Opened at the end of 2016, it has a smart, contemporary decor and serves everything from lunch and afternoon tea to after work drinks and dinner. The waiting staff are as welcoming as they are professional and the bar staff are always happy to mix up a cocktail. The spacious heated terrace is great for people watching, perhaps over a sun downer or two.

Scottish produce, carefully presented

Local produce and thoughtful, artful presentation are at the heart of both the main menu and the prix fixe menu at The Lantern Room. Dishes range from familiar classics such as the burgers or beer-battered haddock to more complex options such as the creamed goat’s cheese with roasted beetroot, compressed watermelon and cracked black pepper tile.

From the sausage of the day to gourmet sandwiches and juicy steaks, there are choices for every occasion and appetite. Sharing platters and a selection of small plates add to the flexibility of the menu.
