Experience an elegant Afternoon Tea at Cucina in the G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh Scotland

G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh has been rebranded to Radisson Collection Edinburgh Royal Mile

This beautiful boutique hotel in Edinburgh City Center is the only five-star hotel on the Royal Mile. The lobby is cozy and stylish with a modern Scottish feel.

The unique and colorful Cucina restaurant is upstairs from the lobby.

This chic newly re-designed restaurant incorporates colorful wallpaper, wrapped pillars, soft cushions and booths. Here Chef Mattia Camorani offers award winning, seasonal and contemporary Italian dishes in an elegant restaurant setting.

We chose Cucina’s unique and innovative afternoon tea.

To begin the afternoon tea experience you are presented with a box of different teas which you can touch, smell and decide which one is just right for you.

When the tea is brought to the table there is a lovely 3-4-5 minute sand timer so you know when your special pot of tea is properly brewed.

The tower of afternoon treats:

Chick pea hummus, cucumber ribbon & basil sandwich

Scottish smoked salmon, baby caper cream cheese, baby spinach wrap

Peppered pastrami, mustard mayonnaise, plum tomato & rocket sandwich

Auld Reekie cheddar, red cabbage slaw roll

Fruit & Plain Scones (delicious)

Clotted cream and trip tree jam pot

Passion fruit jelly

Orange sorbet, wafer cone, chocolate pieces

Pavlova, raspberry & blueberry, flower

Almond macaroon, lavender crème patissiere

Honeycomb truffle

Rich dark chocolate tart, pear & vanilla (so good)

Spend the afternoon lingering over the delicious Afternoon Tea at Cucina in the G&V Royal Mile Hotel.
