    Booked Nor Loft cheese fondue experience as a celebratory lunch with my mum after some good news! It was a Friday afternoon at 1pm & what can I say, it was wonderful! It was so special. The views are stunning, the staff are so lovely & the fondue was delicious! We had a bottle of champagne (Paul Roger) which was perfect but yes, pricey. The restaurant was quiet at that time but it was perfect for us. Nobody rushed us when we finished so we sat & enjoyed another glass of wine soaking up the wonderful views! Just book it!!!

    Lovely place but we were in for over an hour and were only offered one drink. They weren’t busy either. The waitress who did serve us seems to be exasperated by us and just seemed like she couldn’t be arsed. We are very polite friendly people so couldn’t understand her attitude. If we had been demanding arseholes could understand it. So nice place, nice location but the bar went to afterwards would be the bar we would recommend to friends not this one.

    They should have let us know the kitchen was going to be closed in advance. We were there for dinner on a booking and got to order the last charcuterie board they had. Nothing else to eat, they had run out of the cheese board. A bit disappointing considering we were there to celebrate a birthday and they were aware of it. No freebies or any apologies from the staff, not accommodating to their customers. Overall, we enjoyed the view and the wine was ok.

    Lovely setting, great views, didn't eat there but food looked nice, drinks are quite pricey but still worth the visit, will definitely be back

    C’est inadmissible de faire déplacer les gens sous réservation un 25/12 pour nous annoncer sur place que les cuisines sont fermées. Il été 13h tout été fermé aux alentours ou complet. Nous avons pris un verre et le service laisse également a désirer. Une autre famille est tombé également dans le piège. A fuir.

    An absolutely lovely Christmas Eve afternoon spent at the Nor Loft. Delicious champagne and cocktails and really tasty food. Fantastic views over Princes Street. Will be back very soon.

    We book the Nor Loft every year at Christmas since it opened and take out two children . It’s tradition. This year we could only get a table at 8.45pm so we did the Xmas market had dinner and headed up all excited in our sparkle for a glass of champagne and kids ( now 16!!) a hot chocolate or soft drink and maybe some nibbles. We were sat at the table asked what we would like to drink , shen I asked what time we had the table to we were told on fact we couldn’t stay as the policy had changed and under 18s now only allowed in until 8.30pm ( and not 10pm like previous years) We had to get our coats back on all feeling so disappointed , our Xmas tradiknal drinks were ruined. We have spent a lot of money over the years st Nor Loft ( you can check my bookings) come many a time throughout the year ( not just at Xmas ) I’m so so disappointed in the change of policy and they way it was delivered and we were asked to leave ( after being seated and asked to order ) We have to make it up to our teenagers and will look to do so , unfortunately probably not in Nor Loft , it’s broken out tradition .
