I ate here to celebrate my birthday with my partner. I am a foodie and love nice places and Castle Terrace exceeded all expectations. On arrival we were asked what we don't eat, and I am quite fussy (no cheese or fish). Because of this they changed out the small taster courses. Which was an amazing touch, and one of... More

Had a lunch recently and to answer that I'd really want to go back for a dinner as well, but OH and I couldn't really fault it. It has everything I'd expect from a starred establishment - nice interior, good quality staff, excellent wine and great food. We had the set lunch on this occasion, every part of which was... More

My partner and I visited Castle Terrace and opted for the A La Carte menu. We were not disappointed! From the moment we arrived, the staff were simply amazing. They were friendly, accommodating and met our every need without being pushy or over the top. After ordering, we were served 3 canapés (each of which was out of this world),... More

This was a sublime experience on a cold and lazy Saturday afternoon. We were led straight to our table, it was busy and most tables full. Service was perfect, attentive, knowledgable and efficient. The menus are weighty including an endless cocktail and wine list. We dismissed the al a carte in favour of the mystery tasting menu and wine pairing.... More

The highlight of the visit was the level of service by a professional and friendly team. The service was probably the best service I've received at a restaurant. The lunch menu had a really good selection accompanied by a wine list with help from a wine expert. The food was-mouthwatering. Edinburgh is a very friendly and welcoming city and the... More

The chef here clearly has talent but some of his ideas are a bit flawed. Although the cooking and presentation was well executed to me some of the flavours didn't quite work together for instance the curry was too strong for the scallops. I wasn't that impressed with the "burger", great for a party but not a fine dinning dinner.... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
