Rhubarb is a lavish fine dining Restaurant within the luxurious Prestonifield House in Edinburgh's south side. Of course spent a dining is very expensive but whether you like it or not, then worth it to experience yourself.

We went for the setting. Rhubarb restaurant is located in the restored 17th century Prestonfield House, now a luxury hotel. The house is set on 18 acres of parkland a short 10 minute drive from the centre of Edinburgh yet we felt we had completely left the city as we drove up a entry road and noticed Highland bulls grazing in the pasture beside the house. We were greeted at the door by a black kilted doorman and then led to a salon where we perused the menu while sipping on drinks and sampling the plate of amuse bouches. The antlers which formed the legs and arms of many pieces of furniture gave the room an over the top hunting lodge feel.
Dinner is served in two dining rooms both decorated with rhubarb red coloured wallpaper and chandeliers hanging from the domed ceiling giving a feeling of old world opulence. To complete the ambiance, a peacock was sitting in the tree outside the window. There are also several private dining rooms.
The menu is basically French with some innovative twists. I had a starter called asparagus salad that was an interesting combination of differently prepared asparagus. The mains offered a good choice of meats, poultry and seafood. For dessert, an assiette of rhubarb desserts seemed a must and the tart tatin was very good. The wine list offers many excellent choices.
Dinner was pricey but not outrageous. It was an experience, to be sure.
