-Restaurant Closure-  
Due to refurbishment the Acanthus Restaurant will be closed from 18th September until 2nd October. Breakfast and Dinner service will be available in our function suite located on the 1st floor during this time. We apologise for any inconveniences this may cause.

An exciting new dining concept has arrived at Macdonald Holyrood Hotel.   Acanthus combines simple classic Scottish dishes in a relaxed, flexible and friendly environment.

Selecting only the very best in fresh, quality ingredients locally sourced where possible, Acanthus is one of the most exciting new restaurants in Edinburgh.  Open from 8am until late and offering tasty dishes from brunch through to evening dinner, our brasserie-style setting and menu is bursting with flavoursome food.

Flexible space and private booths make Acanthus ideal for business meetings in the city or networking events either over coffee, lunch or early evening ensuring you get the privacy you need in a stunning location.
