Square Meal Review of The Pompadour by Galvin at The Caledonian ?

Edinburgh’s most famous restaurant in the city’s most legendary hotel, the ever-fabulous Pompadour at ‘The Caley’ has been given a new lease of life as part of Hilton Worldwide’s £24m restoration programme – cue Chris and Jeff Galvin, the dynamic duo behind London big-hitters such as Galvin Bistrot de Luxe and Galvin at Windows (another Hilton tie-in). The first-floor dining room is a grand vision of belle époque affluence (imagine Chinese panels, florid cornicing and pink chandeliers), while French technique meets Scottish ingredients in the kitchen – think roast Orkney scallops with pig’s trotter and veal sweetbreads, parsnip purée and apple fondant or stuffed rack and confit Ayrshire rabbit with soft polenta, chestnuts and Arran mustard jus, followed by passion-fruit soufflé with coconut ice cream and marinated pineapple. With “fantastically attentive” service and a top-flight wine list, we’d wager that eating out in Auld Reekie doesn’t get any swankier than this.
