CONTRAST BRASSERIE

In Scotland, the traditional way of cooking is to create simple dishes, built around one great ingredient. Contrast Brasserie is no different. From succulent rare breed pork or prime dry-aged beef we try to stay true to our Scottish roots.

With a sharp focus on Scottish, locally sourced produce, Contrast Brasserie is a refreshing addition to the city's restaurant scene. Located a short walk along the river from the City Centre and just across from Eden Court Theatre, it’s the perfect lunch, pre-theatre or dinner destination.

AVAILABLE FOR EXCLUSIVE HIRE

Savour the tastes of the season at Contrast Brasserie by clicking on the menu options below. Then simply book your table online. After all, who wants to use the phone when their mouth's watering so much?
