No need to book a flight to Edinburgh to taste authentic Scottish cuisine. Book a table at Albannach Restaurant and Whisky to treat yourself to all that Scotland has to offer, right in the heart of London, across from Trafalgar Square.
Upon first hearing about a great Scottish restaurant by Trafalgar Square, I have to admit that I had my doubts. Although I am not from London originally, and was once a tourist myself, many know that the tourist areas tend to have more tourist-friendly chain restaurants filled with cheap, quick eats.
However, I was pleasantly surprised when I first walked into Albannach. The design and atmosphere is anything but tourists with fanny packs and trainers. From the deer antler chandeliers, to the multitude of Scottish whisky on offer, you can walk away from Albannach knowing you have enjoyed a piece of authentic Scottish dining.
If by the end of your meal, you want to keep the night going, head downstairs to the A Lounge to hear music by live DJs, enjoy a few cocktails and dance the night away.
