Finally, I manage to return to Edinburghs finest restaurant ,Castle Terrace to eat the superb cuisine of the amazing chef Dominic Jack. It`s been a while since my previous visit so I was pretty excited to be spending the weekend in the city and prioritised Castle terrace as my number one choice of places to dine. The restaurant showcases exactly what I`m looking for in a plate of food. Prime regional ingredients cooked with passion and imagination to an ultra high level. The food here carries bags of flavour , it`s technical , it`s accurately cooked and it`s very much classical old school robust taste sensations …right up my street , love it.
For any Game lovers out there – if you`re ever wanting to do a double hit of the very best of Scottish game then just pop here during Autumn and pair it up with Castle terraces sister restaurant `The Kitchin` . I don`t think you`ll find a better duo in Scotland.
So here`s Dominics seasonal Tasting menu priced at £75 . We enjoyed it with a lovely wine pairing at £55.
