Steakhouse
Twenty Princes Street presents an elegant and stunning setting that is sure to bewitch even the most cosmopolitan of patrons with a seamless mix of traditional elegance and contemporary design. A distinguishing feature of the restaurant is the lush, capacious banquettes carefully positioned to make the most of the vistas. And with massive triple-height windows that offer picture perfect views of the skyline. Chef Paul Ritchie demonstrates his culinary flair with an inventive and eclectic menu that keeps pace with the seasons and uses the finest locally sourced ingredients. There’s an exciting choice of fish and seafood dishes while the selection of steaks are a signature of the restaurant. This restaurant offering guests a trendy and sophisticated hangout whatever the occasion, where dining is refreshingly informal and an atmosphere that’s glamorous but not glitzy. And for pre- or post-prandial drinks and conversations, our bar Juniper is the perfect destination.

My partner and I went for our anniversary meal. It was absolutely fantastic! Couldn’t have wished for better service, food and drink. We were sat at a booth overlooking the huge window where you could see out over Edinburgh. The dining area is huge, very spacious but so comfortable and welcoming. We had beef cheeks & scollops to start which were both delicious. For mains we had the chateaubriand served with a salad and triple cooked fries - it was amazing. Highly recommended and I’d certainly go back 🥂

This is my third visit over a few years and first time since Covid hit. This time was not quite as special as before. The menu has been dumbed down a little as many places have after Covid. . The food was good, but there was something on each plate that spoilt it. Sun dried tomatoes overpoweringly all over the salad with a very nice steak. Raspberries (?) which outnumbered the scallops in the starter - I did not complain as I was a guest of another person. Next time I shall read the menu more carefully. Also getting hold of the restaurant on the phone was very difficult to change the number of people in our group. It was not a problem but took a huge number of phone calls to organise.

The view of the city is wonderful from the restaurant.

Well presented and tasty food. I have never had an Eton Mess like that before. Our server had not been at the restaurant very long and his attention to detail and aiming to please was commendable.

The best of this place is the staff, the Spanish supervisor and the waitresses.

The good is really nice and very well presented but the portions are small, tho. Beautiful restaurant.

The food and ambience were of a high standard and the service was good and some staff were very helpful but we were left with empty wine glasses and had to find a staff member to top up our wine to have with our dessert.
