A welcoming brasserie located in the heart of Edinburgh, One Square offers a modern Scottish take on drinking and dining.

One Square is somewhere to spend leisurely afternoons, to meet with friends for dinner or sit out on the terrace and sip a perfectly-poured G&T.
Modern, seasonal and honest, the One Square menu features an inventive range of Scottish favourites, with an ever-changing selection of signature dishes on offer.

Although the atmosphere is informal, service is never anything but professional, and with a private room for up to forty guests, One Square is just as suited to a special celebration as it is to a working lunch, a quick bite to eat between shops or an indulgent afternoon tea. For an even more memorable experience, there is always the option of Dining at The Pass, where you can watch our chefs apply the finishing touches to your dishes just before they are served.

Booked the restaurant for pre theatre dinner due to excellent location; altogether very good, could not fault the food, service or surroundings. Very pleasant staff only added to our visit. More than happy to return on next visit to Edinburgh.

Excellent staff saved the day! We were very badly let down by Open Table!! Your system allowed us to make a booking for Sunday lunch the day before, but when we arrived the restaurant said they had been fully booked for weeks. Fortunately the very helpful and attentive staff managed to find a space for us. A superb Sunday buffet style lunch followed. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. However, would definitely NOT RECOMMEND booking with Open Table!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal there. It was very busy as it was a Saturday in the run-up to Christmas, but no complaints.

Nice burger, but not special. Good service, pleasnt atmosphere. Annoyed by automatic addition of service charge (only 2 people) - service is the job. Would have given a larger tip than the service charge had this not already been added. As it was we didn't leave anything extra.

I rarely dine at hotel restaurants for dinner. Glad I made the exception this time. Mussels were very well prepared and presented and the Cod was truly excellent
Well done...

Mussels and steak were really good but not sure about the crisps with the steak, why not chips?! Weird! Overall the service and standard of food was very good, not one plate left with anything on it. I would definitely go again.

This was a graduation celebration and the new graduate was presented with a decorated dessert plate congratulating him on his achievement. An unexpected and very nice touch. The food was lovely and the staff were very welcoming.

The experience here is akin to dining in a hotel lobby, which isn't that for the reality. We were squeezed into a corner next to the waiter's terminal. This was despite other tables in the centre being empty. This added to the lack of atmosphere. The food was good, if poor value, service was ok. I wouldn't return.

Hotel restaurant with ambitious, but unrealized, menu. Not inexpensive. Better food for same pricing in the area. Service staff were gracious and considerate.

Food was excellent, the sirloin was especially good. Had to wait 20 minutes for a drink and service was painfully slow throughout the meal.

First time for afternoon tea with my friend and we were made to feel very special. Will definitely be back in the future beautiful surroundings and excellent customer service with delicate sweets and savouries that were scrumptious. The beautiful tea selection was served just right. Overall it was a great experience. Highly recommended.

Wanted a nice place for a surprise 70th dinner for my Dad and this was just the job. Great view of the castle, nice table for the six of us and really good food from a good choice on the menu. It's a good mix of being in a hotel and all that brings with it but also being slightly separate and a walk in place. Would recommend!

Good was wonderful. I took my wife there for our anniversary. She is a great cook, and was hugely impressed. We agreed that the lamb was the best either of us had ever tasted. There is lots of space so it's not noisy. The decor is as elegant as you might expect from an up market hotel.

My Husband and I went to One Square for dinner and a special night out and it did not disappoint! The food was delicious and good value for the quality received. The restaurant has great views out to Usher Hall and the castle. Service was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We finished up the evening with drinks in the swanky gin bar. It is well worth a visit and we will definitely be back!

Part of hotel and nice set up but as a Saturday night they were busy and looked a bit short staffed. Noticed that under our table and others could see bits of dropped food and napkins. Food was good but a little pricey for what got. Except for the mussels which were great as a starter and large.
