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.

Love this place, the staff are lovely and the food is great. We had the burgers and the cheese board. We feel it is a little over priced and the cheese board could’ve had a different variety of crackers and accomplishments to go with it but we would still visit this restaurant as we love it!

What a lovely surprise! Easily our best meal of our trip! The service was excellent, the views were lovely and the food was outstanding! We were even treated to a free drink and lovely treat with anniversary message to celebrate our wedding anniversary! Already recommended to our friends for their next trip to Edinburgh
My only criticism would be that the lighting was too bright in the restaurant and could have been lower/reduced to create the ideal setting

Disappointingly but understandably quite.
Big space, resulting in zero atmosphere but in fairness no fault of venue.
Food was pretty decent 🙂

One of most pleasurable venues I have ever encountered. The staff could not do enough to ensure we had a enjoyable time. The meal was truly out of this world and will be coming back on my next visit to Edinburgh.

The food was very average

The drinks list minimum, being in Edinburgh one would expect way to more

Not recommend this place at all

But the staff was very friendly and helpful that’s why the 3 stars

We had dinner as a family of ‘6’ and seated on a round table which was ideal for conversation/s. The menu was amazing and we all chose delicious starters, mains and some of us made room for desserts. The cheese board was good to share. The staff were attentive, polite and knowledgeable.

They’ve followed social distancing rules exactly. Tables are widely spaced out, there’s a one way system to the toilets and hand gel available.
Good food, we enjoyed the sharing platter between 3 with some extra sides.

A very enjoyable meal and excellent food and service. The atmosphere was somewhat lacking but in the absence of background music and with Covid restrictions this is not their fault and expected.

We did not have food so could not rate it. Lovely place and would probably order a meal the next visit as it looked good.

Have been in Twenty many times for drinks. Would be nice if the lift was working.

Would re on mend and hope to be back soon.

We received a very warm welcome from staff and were able to take our table early as the bar was full for a cocktail. Of course in the current climate there is limited capacity for decoration and flowers so the ambience is not what it would have been in normal times. Had a really excellent, well cooked steak - but the sides including chips were a bit stingey. Overall two course each with a cocktail each and a bottle of wine came out at £72 a head - unfortunately at this price i would have expected an outstanding not just a good meal

Poor standards. Reusing plastic menus not wiped down after use getting passing about person to person, waitress hugging and shaking hands with friends touching her nose and face and touching plates and cutlery no sanitizing at all. If trying to stay safe c19 this is not the place to go. Service wasnt good steak over cooked. I used to like here wint by back there are more hygienic safer places to eat. Very disappointed. Swapped my cutlery to be honest we should have left.

This is a beautiful place but lacks real atmosphere. It wasn't helped by a leak from the ceiling on to my guest's jacket.
The food is just OK- nothing special
The service is good
