I have been fortunate to eat at Castle Terrace on business a few times but this is the first time I have put my hand in my own pocket. We recently stayed at Gleneagles Hotel and I had told my wife that Castle Terrace was far better than Andrew Fairlie's well she said, I wouldn't know as I haven't eaten... More

In order to secure a reservation, one is required to give email and credit card details I have dined in other Michelin Star restaurants and this was never a requirement. I have been here before and the food was very good but it spoils the whole experience to know that you are not trusted to honour your reservation. A misguided... More

unable to get dinner reservations, we went for lunch. We chose they tasting menu accompanied by the wine selections. Service was attentive without being overbearing, presentation was a treat for the eyes, and the food was quite good. yes, it may seem pricey, but when you have a meal of this quality, it is worth it.

Last Friday my daughter in law and myself had a gastronomic experience of a lifetime. We thoroughly enjoyed a tasting experience with wine. Our conversation at times became incoherent as words could not express the explosions of tastes in our mouths. The attention to the smallest detail impressed. Yes, it was expensive but worth every penny.

Had the lunch special vegetarian menu. It was truly memorable and extremely reasonable for the quality. We have found dining out in England at anything that aspires to "fine dining" very expensive but this was well and truly worth the experience. Could not recommend highly enough. Very knowledgeable staff made it a special experience.

I have been a devotee of a couple of Edinburgh's other fine dining restaurants for years so it took me a little while to get around to trying Castle Terrace. However, now that I have I am sure I will be back again and again. The occasion that gave me the impetus to finally break my absurd duck was the... More

I wrote a review a few weeks ago and it was a very positive (5) concerning the food, the presentation, the wait staff, but I forgot one very important item. When on vacation in Ireland, I called and made the reservation a week prior. They took my credit card number but never mentioned a cancellation fee.We were told if we... More

We came to Castle Terrace in July to celebrate our wedding anniversary and knew as soon as we walked in that it would be a special night. The staff are so welcoming and helpful and the decor is sophisticated and subtle. We chose the Vegetarian Tasting Menu and the wine package, a little expensive but well worth every penny. Every...

We had the 3 course lunch with wine pairing and enjoyed it immensely. We really liked how the local ingredients were used in ways that were from other cuisines (Spanish or French, in our instances) or in fresh interpretations of traditional Scottish dishes. The staff was wonderful -- approachable, knowledgeable and professional. They were happy to share the inspiration and... More

We had booked castle terrace from New Zealand several months earlier after reading other reviews and this was one of 3 restaurants we had booked to enjoy in our 8 week holiday in the UK. We had also booked Gordon Ramsey's restaurant in London. We ate at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant before we ate at Castle Terrace. The food at Castle... More
