Best leave it to the experts such as the kitchen brigade at The Skerries Restaurant at Dunstane Hotel in Edinburgh’s West End.
Specialists in cooking the finest Scottish ingredients, they have created a spectacular Valentine’s Day dinner menu.
Add in elegant surroundings and charming staff and The Skerries offers the perfect recipe for a romantic meal to remember this Valentine’s Day.
The owners of Dunstane House Hotel and The Skerries Restaurant have Orkney roots and this is reflected in the sourcing of the top quality ingredients on their Valentine’s Day menu especially the char grilled Orkney rib eye steak.
