Not many people would think of going to a casino to eat but the 110 restaurant, which lies within the Genting Club at Fountain Park in Edinburgh, fully justifies consideration. It has bright decor with comfortable, stylish booths at the back for those who wish more privacy. The restaurant provides a pulsating atmosphere. Characters of various natures occupy the gaming tables, which are clearly visible from the dining area. Chips constantly click, roulette balls rattle and gently upbeat music plays.
This provides a perfect setting for group bookings particularly. There are 70 covers, with room for up to 120.
Head Chef Stuart Fraser provides a menu of a Scottish style with meat sourced from Fife and fish from the North of Scotland. The Venison Carpaccio starter with rocket and parmesan salad is exquisitely delicate. The pan fried duck breast main serving is topped with plum compote, also has roast onion polenta and hoisin sauce. The dish came with vegetables and sautÃ©ed potatoes. Its composites make the duck one of the most enjoyable dishes on the menu.
A disappointing point about the menu is that it lacked an additional fish dish. This could easily have been accommodated at the Â cost of one of the many meat dishes available.
The sweet of warm chocolate fudge cake with a choice of cream or ice cream had a covering of thick yet soft and not overly sweet chocolate, complete with a single, delightfully succulent strawberry.
The wine list has ample choice of all types, and a good selection by the glass.
Overall the food is of supreme quality, but one potentially uncomfortable factor is the criteria for entry:
– 18 or older only, passport/driving license required for entry, and your photograph will be taken for security
