I wanted a fabulous restaurant experience on our one free night in Edinburgh - and got it with the Castle Terrace. I hadn't prepared my husband for the price, but still I persuaded him to join me for the "Chef's Land and Sea Surprise Tasting Menu" and even the astonishing up-charge for Grouse. I explained it was like a fine night at the theater - with a meal included! The dishes were so creative and beautifully presented AND delicious. And memorable. One of the canapés - the "caesar salad - eat it in 1 bite" - was such a delicious surprise I'm still talking about it three weeks later; I have no clue how it was prepared. The scallop in curry sauce was the biggest one I've ever seen, and so perfectly cooked. Just one negative: We had a late reservation - 8:30 on a weeknight - and by the time we left our excellent servers were gone and we felt as if those left behind couldn't wait to get us out of there, even though we weren't the last ones in the place. One more comment: "I couldn't believe" how sloppily dressed most of the customers were; maybe people don't dress up for anything any more. But this was so special, I thought it deserved more "respect" than the kind of clothes you'd expect at a football game.

it's is a restaurant that was recently opened so I was a bit "Ify" about eating outside of the well earned famed restaurants.
Well What a surprise I had. Castle Terrace is a mix of modern British cuisine influenced by learned French cooking techniques making it an outstanding restaurant. If you have eaten at the "classic" restaurants this is the place to discover the next best thing.
