About The Lookout by Gardener's Cottage
The Lookout by Gardener's cottage is an exciting partnership between Edinburgh restaurant The Gardener's Cottage and Collective, the organisation that has redeveloped the City Observatory site on Calton Hill into a new home for contemporary art.
Built on a cantilever so the restaurant is partially suspended over Calton Hill's northwest slope, The Lookout by Gardener's Cottage features floor to ceiling glass windows with panoramic views across Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth.
Our menus offer a modern take on dishes we have evolved over the last six years at The Gardener’s Cottage, complementing The Lookout’s modern architecture and spectacular views.
Our light breakfast menu includes delicious pastries from our bakery in Leith. Our lunch and dinner offerings are centred on a seasonal and inventive a la carte menu. We also offer a 2 or 3-course set lunch menu, and a 5-course set dinner menu.
