If you are looking to splurge, the Pompadour restaurant at the top of the five-star Caledonian Hilton Hotel offers sumptuous French and Scottish cuisine. It is named after Jeanne Antoinette, Marquise de Pompadour (1721 – 1764), a renowned courtesan of the reign of Louis XV. Enjoy stunning views of Edinburgh Castle as a pianist serenades in the background. It is expensive, yes, but just the place in which to waltz around pretending that you're unreasonably rich. If you are unreasonably rich, it's just the place to lunch whilst admiring the views of Edinburgh Castle.
