Eating out with Children

, more than 2 years ago

One is with children really do not in any restaurant is a welcome guest, but this is even for the children eating a real experience. The operation makes jokes with the children, the food is beautifully decorated and full of ideas. On the steak my son was even a smiley fries and Dino were the real hit with the kids.

The restaurant is gorgeous, certainly because of the castle, it is so unique and very special. The service is good, the food is delicious. Quality place for tourists.

The Tower Restaurant - in a Museum

, more than 2 years ago

The Tower restaurant is located at the top of the Museum of Scotland and you enter as though entering the museum. The security staff on reception take your name and escort you to the lift. As you exit the lift the maitre'd then calls you by name and escorts you to your table. We were given a table overlooking the castle, the view got better and better as the night came.
The service wass good, the staff are attentive and friendly. The prices, however, are a bit high. Too high. Menu varies regularly, but always includes some very tasty dishes.

The Tower Restaurant - Great View

, more than 2 years ago

Great place for a Saturday date.
The food is unbelievable and the staff are charming, attentive, friendly. The view is superb from up there.

The service was outstanding, the Tower is situated at the top of the Museum of Scotland and you enter as though entering the museum. The security staff on reception take your name and escort you to the lift. As you exit the lift the maitre'd then calls you by name and escorts you to your table (no bar or lounge to sit and wait in). We were given a lovely table overlooking the castle, which just got prettier and prettier as the sky darkened.

The Tower is a sister restaurant to the Witchery by the Castle, the Witchery is more famous but I think the Tower is better.

I can't describe my favourite dish as they were all so perfect!
