Hotel in Edinburgh

From today 2nd December 2013, politicians, business executives, journalists and tourists alike within the Holyrood area of Scotland's capital can savour award-winning flavoursome Scottish food with an Italian twist after leading restaurateurs, Susan and Adrian Pieraccini opened their brasserie style Rocca@Holyrood dining experience within Macdonald Holyrood Hotel.

The opening is the latest venture by Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, AA Hotel Group of the Year 2013-2014. 

The centre-piece of a £500,000 investment at the hotel, Rocca@Holyrood is located just steps from the Scottish Parliament and Palace of Holyroodhouse. 

The new brasserie-style restaurant, opened by the team that has already achieved three AA rosettes at Rocca Bar & Grill restaurant at sister hotel Macdonald Rusacks Hotel, St Andrews, Rocca@Holyrood promises its diners great tasting food within a contemporary styled restaurant that conveys a sense of warmth and calm. Promising a quick and efficient all-day service, guests can taste Rocca through both Italian and Scottish inspired classic dishes such as hand-rolled pasta with a beef and Barolo Ragu, or mushrooms "on toast" with poached egg and delicious hollandaise and enjoy a much-loved approach to relaxed dining. 

Susan Pieraccini, co-owner of Rocca Bar & Grill and Rocca@Holyrood, commented: We are really excited about bringing our award-winning concept to Edinburgh. Whether for a business lunch, networking event or intimate evening dinner, Rocca@Holyrood will offer simple dishes that burst with flavour and use the finest freshest produce.  We'll offer great value all-day dining from breakfast to brunch and through to evening dining and have designed a contemporary flexible space to give business networking meetings the privacy they need. Plus our opening two-course lunch offer starts at £10.95 per person".
