After swimming we decided to come up to the restaurant for a quick snack, we got our daughter chips and my partner and I shared nachos! The guacamole we got was brown and looked like mould! The actual nachos were solid with crispy burnt cheese now come on how can you not make nachos right! The chef needs to have... More

Great service by a polish guy, he was very polite and made us special. The beef main course was a good choice, very tasty and the dessert was excellent too. Would recommend it and would come back again. And what a view!!! (we used the 5pm deal)

Bar staff and restaurant staff were excellent but that's where the positives really ground to a halt. One of our party of 3 enjoyed both his course choices - the nachos and the grilled Limerick ham. My sister and i enjoyed our starters of chicken liver parfait and the smoked salmon roulade, however, our mains of grilled fillet of beef... More

This "hotel" has no wheelchair access to the resaurant - I was told the wheelchair user can use the bar! the restaurant only has 4 steps and they can't provide access - appalling service they should be ashamed of themselves in this say and age

Tried to book family get together lunch for New Year's Day. There are 4 steps into the restaurant and no provision for wheelchairs. Spoke to the manager, who is aware of this, he is new to the hotel and knows that improvements are needed and is addressing these.

The Early menu is good value - 2 courses for £9.95, 3 for £12.95. Much cheaper than the normal menu. The food is excellent, staff very helpful and the restaurant has great views over to the west.

Excellent food and service. My only complaint was that I was led to believe I was getting homemade fries. The fries I got were nice enough but when you're expecting handmade it's a but if a disappointment. This aside the food was impeccable. A must try... 5*'s from me!

I eat here a lot and have to say I've never been disappointed. A lot of Scottish ingredients are used in the menu. The food is scrumptious! Menu choice changed depending on the season. Staff are friendly and service really good. Well worth a visit plus they're good for dietary requirements!

  • This restaurant is at Edinburgh Capital Hotel
Edinburgh���s Westview Restaurant at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel represents not only enjoyable contemporary dining, but excellent value for money too. Located just West of the city, the Westview is an escape from the busy streets, surrounded by parkland but still extremely convenient for the town centre and airport, making it an ideal choice for business dining or for a romantic getaway ��� especially when paired with a booking for one of the hotel���s lovely rooms. The teal and charcoal surroundings of the Westview give the clean lines and simplistic furnishings character and individuality, setting this hotel restaurant apart from identikit contemporaries while the part-conservatory styling of the room really does make the most of great views towards the Pentland Hills and the Firth of Forth. Full Scottish buffet breakfasts are available each morning as the sun comes up over the Firth, while as the day wears on, you���ll experience a more formal dining style, lunch and dinner menus taking from the Scottish larder to create the Scotch and international dishes the kitchen is known for. Sunday lunches are equally a treat while snacks are available in the Westview bar all day every day.
