Description: In the charmingly old world setting of the Dunstane House Hotel, The Skerries is a handsome seafood restaurant with a punchy menu that draws on the Orkney origins of the owner. Situated west of Haymarket, this Edinburgh mainstay is decorated in formal Victorian style, with beautiful windows overlooking the gardens. The seasonal cuisine combines Orcadian seafood and meat with local produce to create dishes bursting with flavour. The cosy bar affords a sizeable selection of Scottish malt whiskies.

I have been many many times in this fantastic and small Restaurant and I think is the best Scottish in the city. I have tried all the menu and could not find a bad dish, starter or dessert. The employees are always happy and professional. The restaurant is inside the Dunstane Boutique Hotel, which is a nice option to be in a calm but well located hotel. Congrats.

It is so easy not leave your gorgeous room after a long day, but rather go downstairs for dinner. Hotel food is known for being not so great and often very pricey - but not at the Dunstane! Everything was delicious and reasonably priced.

And it is easy to see why local connoisseurs often come for a night out. The menu is varied, interesting, and just the right mix of Scottish specialties. The portions are generous to say the least.

But the service sets this restaurant apart - it is amazing!

Skerries is definitely the right choice!

We ate at the Skerries restaurant 4 times during our stay at Dunstane House Hotel. Each and every time was a real pleasure. The seafood chowder is worth travelling 300 miles for alone. The saddle of venison was superb and the desserts were unbeatable. We did eat out a couple of nights but nothing matched the quality and freshness of the food at the Skerries.

The service was impeccable and the staff were friendly and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be visiting again.
