    A great celebration

    Chose The Tower to celebrate my daughters graduation, everything about the experience made it a day to remember. Great food, great service, great location and even better company.

    The Tower never disappoints

    Really enjoyable dinner, thank you - lovely food and ambience and attentive staff. And view of the pink evening sky over the castle was a bonus!

Contemporary Scottish restaurant in the Old Town

Tower Restaurant is a sleek and elegant rooftop venue in the Old Town. It is located within (or should that be on?) one of Edinburgh’s most visited buildings – the National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street. The restaurant is glamorous, chic and oozes quiet luxury, ensuring guests receive a memorable fine dining experience. Tower Restaurant specialises in Scottish cuisine with a somewhat global flair and uses only the best produce in the dishes they create.

Expertly prepared food & views of Edinburgh’s skyline

The chefs at Tower Restaurant seek to make the most of Scotland’s produce so the menus often feature items such as hand dived scallops from the Isle of Mull; salmon from Loch Duart; or calf’s liver with Ayrshire bacon. Some guests have been known to treat themselves to the indulgent lobster thermidor or the restaurant’s expertly grilled chateaubriand steak, whilst others have opted for an earlier visit during the day to sample Tower Restaurant’s exquisite afternoon tea.

Accessibility to the Old Town & transport links

Wheelchair accessible and child-friendly, Tower Restaurant is on the roof of the Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town. Pay and display parking is available outside the museum as well as NCP car park at nearby Lauriston Place.
