It was in a hotel, but the food was good and the view was spectacular! We had dinner about mid- evening and the Edinburgh Castle was lit up and visible from our dining table. It was part of our CIE tour, but if I was there and not on a tour, I would still like to eat there just for... More

Going away for mine and my best friends birthday we were very excited to be going away. Me and my partner love fine dining and had seen the restaurant on trip adviser, we got there and were greeted by lovely staff and a fantastic view of the castle as the restaurant is glass fronted and it was all lit up!...

The food here is very good, but the view is the best in Edinburgh. We really enjoyed eating breakfast up there and dinner was very good, too. Service was quite good.

The food was of excellent quality and beautifully presented. The service was attentive without being intrusive and we were able to watch the Sun going down behind the castle. It's fair to say that the menu isn't cheap - but the quality of the food is outstanding. Because it was my wife's birthday, I asked if it were possible for... More

The dinner was very good and the service without fault. We were a group on a choir tour and really enjoyed having our last night in Edinburgh at this excellent restaurant.

I had booked the rooftop restaurant for a special dinner long in advance for a birthday dinner. I requested a window table to make the most of the view of the castle. On arrival at 7.30pm we found the restaurant full of package tours, rowdily discussing the day`s viewing in a American drawl. To add to my disappointment the window... More

We have dined at The Heights on Christmas Day for the past two years and intend to return in 2014. We have also made the occasional visit in between. The location of the hotel and the views from the dining room only add to a pleasurable experience. The staff are always most helpful and polite, the service is efficient. The... More

We booked at the last minute and we were not disappointed! From the start to the finish staff were attentive, polite and very helpful. The menu was very creative with a mixture of foods and tastes to suit anyone. They asked about dietary requirements and as one of us is lactose intolerant were helpful in suggesting alternatives from the chef.... More
