Trip Advisor


Bookatable recommends Colonnades at the Signet Library

The Scottish Hospitality Awards 2017 - Restaurant Of the Year Winnner (South East)



''The Colonnades has nailed afternoon tea. A sense of occasion, stunning setting, food perfectly imagined and executed and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon...''  

Edinburgh Etiquette

"Rather than the traditional three tiers of an afternoon tea, the Colonnades place as much emphasis on the savoury elements as the sweet, so we began with an entire stunning stand of savoury goodies...''

Gluten Free in Edinburgh

''...I cannot praise it highly enough. If you want the finest gluten free afternoon tea in Edinburgh, this is where you have to go.'' 

Wines & Olives

''…The mirrored tables were stunning, the glassware was impeccable and the presentation of the afternoon tea selection beat every other afternoon tea I’ve ever had… I fell in love with Colonnades from the moment I sat down. From the incredible surroundings to the interior finishes and the decadent touches, it really is set to become the venue for afternoon tea in Edinburgh.’'
