The Gallery Restaurant & Bar

The Gallery Restaurant & Bar offers uninterrupted views across Princes Street Gardens and famous Edinburgh landmarks. It is part of the Playfair Project; a world-class visitor facility linking the Royal Scottish Academy Building and the National Gallery of Scotland.

The restaurant is split across three tiers, defining the creation of a versatile dining space, and magnificent views for all; a large horse-shoe terracotta bar is central to the design providing a focus for the comfortable lounge area located on the top tier of the restaurant.
