With 300 malts on hand, this restaurant café at the top of the Royal Mile will put a smile on a whisky-lover’s face. During the day, the café menu includes dishes like the mussels with Islay whisky and spring onion sauce. The candles come out and the operation kicks up a couple of gears in the evening with options such as the medallions of Scottish beef fillet with fondant potato and whisky peppercorn sauce. Real whisky fans can ask the sommelier to match malts to their meal.
