Our signature tasting menu perfectly embodies our philosophy by showcasing the best of Scotland’s larder, reflecting a bounty of different ingredients as we follow the change of the seasons - sure to impress both friends and family alike, and will ensure your celebrations are executed in a truly luxurious and memorable fashion.

Looking for a more intimate setting for your celebrations? With access to unique historic spaces within the City Observatory, our friendly team can also help you to organize and host your dining experience away from the bustle of the main restaurant. Seating up to 12 guests, The Library is a truly unique Georgian gem and enjoys views towards the Firth of Forth and beyond. Our smaller private dining area Transit House is located to the west of the Observatory site, and features an opening in the roof which once allowed a transit telescope to follow the stars as they crossed the night sky. This historical room can be exclusively yours for a small drinks reception, or dinner for up to 6 guests.

However you would like to celebrate, the Lookout will ensure that you and your guests will have a truly special experience, and help to provide a memorable and magical end to your studies in Edinburgh!
