Gabbro is a new restaurant providing modern Scottish cuisine with a French twist within a contemporary ansd relaxed ambience and increasingly popular with locals, business people and visitors alike. Our menu changes weekly with all food prepared in-house using top quality locally sourced fish and seafood, beef, game and poultry. Quality ingredients, combined with seasonal fruits (some homegrown) and vegetables and home-made stocks and puddings make for a hearty and wholesome Scottish experience. Enjoy a malt whisky in the lounge and in the Summer months al-fresco dining in the superb walled gardens is positively encouraged!!
Just a stone’s throw away from Holyrood Park and the Commonwealth Swimming Pool, Gabbro can be found tucked away within the boutique Salisbury Hotel, on the garden level with direct access to the beautiful walled gardens and outside dining area. Speaking of gabbro you might recall the rugged, dark, abrasive rock from which much of the Isle of Skye is formed. Nothing could be less true of this gem within a casket, and as a place in which to take refuge from some of the less admirable vagaries of life in busy, everyday Edinburgh, it could hardly be bettered.
The kitchen team at Gabbro uses fresh Scottish ingredients to create dazzling dishes and when the evening creeps in you’ll find yourself engaged with an array of choices. Starters may vary from haggis, neeps and tatties with whisky sauce and baked potato skins to a classic Caesar salad. Main courses might include Gabbro steak and ale pie or tagliatelle pasta carbonara, followed by sweet treats such as vanilla cheesecake with summer berry compote.
