Square Meal Review of Café Royal ?

With its ornate Royal Doulton murals of great inventors, eight intricate stained glass windows depicting outdoor pursuits and famous walnut-toned Circle Bar, this ostentatious ‘Victorian baroque’ edifice close to Waverley station is one of Auld Reekie’s great local landmarks. Swing through the revolving door to reach the famous, walnut-toned Circle Bar with its substantial selection of seven Scottish ales, international wines and over 30 big-selling single malts; otherwise continue on through the swing doors at the far end to discover Oyster Bar – an imposing restaurant dealing in fresh bivalves and other seafood delicacies. Top calls include oysters Rockefeller (with spinach and mornay sauce), mussels, and an extravagant seafood platter, but the menu also hauls in Cullen skink, organic salmon niçoise and lobster thermidor as well as meaty alternatives such as duck breast on sweet potato mash with plum sauce.
