    This place was fantastic and the service was great too. Due to the change in restrictions we ended up having the lunch menu instead of dinner which wasn’t a disappointment at all. The only thing I would say is that the mackerel pate option needed a bit more bread with it and the main could’ve done with some veg, I had the haggis. Other meals had veg in them but this didn’t and no option to add it. Otherwise superb. The whisky options...just wow!

    We had a beautiful meal to celebrate my birthday, food was excellent as was the service from Billy & Grace, this was the second time we have ate here and would definitely be back the next time we visit Edinburgh. Highly recommend Amber and not forgetting the huge whisky selection.

    We visit Edinburgh yearly, & Amber is a perennial favorite. The food, the service, the knowledgeable staff who advise on pairings of whisky & food--all are outstanding.

    My friend and I were celebrating our 50th birthdays. I've been to Amber many times, but this was her first time. Although it was a damp and grey day outside, we enjoyed a lovely lunch. The great food and fantastic service really brightened up our afternoon. The relaxed atmosphere and warm welcome added to the experience. I was delighted that my friend thoroughly enjoyed the lunch as much as I did. Thank you, Amber, you did not disappoint!

    Good food, excellent service. We very enjoyed the traditional dishes in a mir modern interpretation. They found out that it was my birthday, only being with my husband. And I got a little speech and a creamy shortbread!

    My partner and I have visited Edinburgh twice in the last year and both times we have booked into the Amber restaurant chiefly in order to eat their vegetarian haggis which we love. However, as we now try to follow a vegan diet, we would have preferred a vegan haggis option. We also felt that the menu could be expanded to incorporate a wider selection vegetarian and vegan options.

    Me and my girlfriend dined here after taking the Scotch Whisky Experience tour. My girlfriend had a vegetarian meal for which both presentation and taste were excellent. I had a salmon dish, it looked a bit bland but tasted very good. Desert was delicious. Courteous and professional staff.
