About The Townhouse Restaurant - Edinburgh Grosvenor
Once again an excellent.experience
As before we were not disappointed with our visit to the Townhouse Restaurant. We were greeted and welcomed and had our choice of table. The food was promptly served and very good. The relaxed atmosphere was welcomed given the busy streets outside and the pouring rain. Hope to go back soon.
Very enjoyable experience!
We had trouble finding the Townhouse Restaurant since the Grosvenor Hotel seemed to be on both sides of the road and could not see a notice for Townhouse. However we were made very welcome, had our choice of table in a very quiet peaceful part of the restaurant. The food was well prepared and enjoyable as was the wine. We felt very relaxed which was welcome and under no pressure to move on. We look forward to another visit under to the same deal and look forward to it. We would highly recommend the venue and this deal in particular.

The exact dishes on the menu will vary according to season but typical starters might be the chicken liver parfait with quince sauce and brioche or the beef tomato and buffalo mozzarella with balsamic and basil oil.
Popular main courses include braised feather-blade of beef with pearl onions and a claret thyme jus or the baked salmon fillet with Red Aura potatoes, sauté green beans and dill cream sauce. There is also a grill section of rump, sirloin and rib-eye steaks and burgers.
Vegetarians are well catered for with choices such as the walnut and Gorgonzola-filled potato gnocchi and oyster mushroom cream. A typical vegan option might be the ravioli of butternut squash with fresh sage and tomato passata. A separate salad section details classic Caesar salads and options such as the poached salmon and crayfish with spinach, summer new potatoes, lemon and dill crème fraîche.
