Tower Restaurant

"Uniquely for a museum this has become the hottest table in Edinburgh"-- AA Gill, The Sunday Times

"....food so sublime it eclipses the wine. Almost" --Iain Banks, The Observer

Atop the Museum of Scotland, perched above the city with spectacular views of the castle and Edinburgh's defining landmarks, the Tower Restaurant has become one of the world's hottest dining destinations since its opening in 1998. Located on the roof of the striking 20th-century sandstone-clad building, the Tower has developed a reputation for the finest seasonal produce in the country. Open every day for lunch and dinner, the restaurant woos with superlative dining (featuring fresh local produce), signature service, and breathtaking views. The extensive menu highlights Argyll oysters, lobster, Fife crab, and platters of seafood, with the grill providing the Tower's signature Aberdeen Angus (proudly hung for 21 days) served with potato scone and Portobello mushrooms.
