Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2015/16 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2012 edition.

Edinburgh College's the Club offers a variety of recreational facilities, open to the general public, which provide students with an opportunity for real-life work experience. EH15 Restaurant & Bar is the hospitality arm of this set-up and occupies a bright and modern top floor space with stunning views towards the city. For lunch service, students prepare dishes under close supervision during the day's classes, while for the three evenings that the restaurant is open selected students work as chefs and waiting staff. It's a great idea that offers something for both students and customers alike and results in some fairly keen pricing. Lunch mains, such as guinea fowl saltimbocca with dauphinoise potatoes, come in at a flat-priced fiver while in the evening a nicely cooked rump of Scottish lamb with lentils and savoy cabbage will set you back £11 (as with all mains). It's a fairly conservative but nonetheless appealing menu. So, if you’re interested in good value eats with great views, then EH15 could fit the bill – and you’ll be supporting a useful cause to boot.

Stunning views, good food well presented, reasonably priced wines, very attractive surroundings, and young staff eager to please. Prices are very reasonable and the only black mark is that no-one seems to be able to make decent coffee.
