Dining at the Tower is quite an event. To access this sleek, modern and stylish restaurant is by way of the imposing Museum of Scotland tower entrance and a great glass elevator. First timers might take time adjusting to the opulent aura. High-standards abound, from the heavyweight cutlery to the level of service. Beyond the big-cheeses on the terrace side there are great views of Edinburgh Castle. On the opposite side, square port holes offer glimpses into the museum exhibits below. The menu offers British modern cuisine at its finest. Try game (venison, duck), dip into the crustacean section (lobster, Fife crab) or devour a grill (Angus beef); these are accompanied by simply cooked vegetables and inspired sauces. For something sweet, take pleasure in the blueberry cheesecake. The wine list is diverse (150 to choose from) and if you are feeling flush there are exclusive champagnes.
