“Definitely worth visit”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

What a beautiful elegant restaurant, truly a stunning place. The staff were excellent as was the service. I wanted a mixture from the menu instead of a set meal and was told this was no problem at all which was refreshing as not all restaurants are so accommodating. The food is quite simple, nothing too exciting but it was very good. Lovely relaxing atmosphere, will definitely go again next time in Edinburgh.

“Like being in home alone at Xmas”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We only drank in the dome but it was lovely in there both of us were amazed, felt like we where in home alone. It was November so it was all Christmassy. They offer table service which was great. Defiantly worth a visit.

“Wow”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

The Dome just has the wow factor even when you come back year after year. The atmosphere is just magic. The food is plentiful and of excellent quality. It's a great place to visit and share a bottle of wine at the bar and enjoy the ambience of the opulent surroundings.

“You eyes will glaze over”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Are the flower vases on the central circular marble bar the largest in the world? Jaw-dropping elegance and opulence from the moment you walk up the stone steps and through the front entrance. Prepare to be impressed when you gaze upwards at the glazed roof. Sadly, the smartness of the staff contrasted sharply with rather scruffy clientele. The barman offered us a choice of three ports, and even sipping a glass of soda and lime was a memorable experience.
