    The restaurant was nice, with attentive and fast service, along with delicious food. For a whisky bar, it may have been nice to have a bit more of a personalised experience while they had time (as there weren’t many diners), however, overall I enjoyed the food, service and ambience, and would consider eating here again.

    Excellent tasting menu with a wee dram served with dessert. This was a real treat after a whiskey tasting tour that was both fun and informative.

    This restaurant was lovely. We celebrated my fiancés birthday, and both really enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious, and the service was great. The staff were attentive without being overbearing, we weren’t rushed at all which is always lovely and Sean was really knowledgable about the whisky we chose. I’m not a massive whisky drinker, but my partner dies really enjoy it, so he was in his element and I have to say, the whiskey paired with our dessert - sticky toffee pudding - was delicious! The dessert was also sensational, as was the rest of the food, even for 2 people who don’t eat a lot of fish. I also loved how nicely spaced the restaurants was, no tables were too close so it felt personal, which is exactly what I wanted! Highly recommend and will be back. Thank you!

    Was very pleased with the staff, food, and surroundings. Recommended the taste of Scotland dish, be open minded ????. They have pre-designed flights which was very helpful as the list of whiskeys is overwhelming. I'd go back and recommend.

    The Taste of Scotland menu exceeded our expectations. We booked it on a whim and were so pleasantly surprised by how delicious and relaxing it was. Great service, a beautiful space and incredible selection of whiskys to try with our meal. The price was reasonable too. Loved it and would recommend!

    I took my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday and we had an amazing time. He loved the food. Excellent restaurant, 100% recommend it.

    Meeting friends, all out of town - fife, borders, berwick upon tweed and chose Amber. Open on a Monday & perfect for the first leg of Edinburgh - THE WALK. Swift friendly service & lovely sitting by the window as requested in the booking. Great sandwiches & coffee. I’ll be back soon for the Scottish tapas & whisky! Not been for a long long time & so glad to find as good as I remembered.

    A welcoming restaurant. My wife had the venison which was perfect and gave me food envy. I had the trout which was beautifully cooked but I did not like the potato ‘dumplings’ that accompanied it. They had an unpleasant gluey texture and little flavour.

    Really good evening at Amber (first time visit). Food was very well executed with fresh ingredients. Met all our expectations. And great to have 472 whiskeys to sample at our discretion…. Thank you!
