About The Townhouse Restaurant - Edinburgh Grosvenor
Felt entirely safe and comfortable given the COVID restrictions
The food was hot, tasty and pleasing on the eye.
Excellent, a revisit is a must
We loved our evening here. The cocktails were amazing, and stronger than our expectations, all tasted delicious. My partner also ordered a pint and we were impressed, not just due to Edinburgh prices but also hotel prices.
The area, even with Covid restrictions, held a lovely vibe, really chilled. The service from the server and the barman was brilliant, really pleasant. There was an issue with our booking but this was rectified swiftly and without any fuss! The area and toilets were clean and social distancing measures well maintained.
Scottish and modern European in West End

Local produce, international inspiration
At The Townhouse Restaurant, the kitchen takes great pride in using fresh, local produce. 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.
