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.

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.

Brilliant bernaise sauce. Lovely Greek waiter (can’t remember name sorry). Nice looking room.

Food. Ah. Not so good. Steak dry and a bit overdone. Also a bit cold... chips wrong type of potato. Became sweet and not crispy. Also picked up oil in abundance. If I was not exhausted and wanted to get it over with I would have sent it all back....

Ihg discount made it less expensive...

Triple cooked chips were soggy and the burger had to be dismantled and eaten with cutlery due to the height of it, bit awkward

Booked Juniper bar for drinks with my boyfriend on Saturday, didn’t intend on eating anything but we ended up ordering the Hallumi sticks and Nacho fries and both really enjoyed them. A lovely bar with lovely cocktails, beautiful decor and the staff could not have been nicer. Thoroughly recommend.

Food, Service and mocktails were excellent. Slightly disappointed in cleanliness in some parts. Ladies toilets had overflowing bin filled with used paper towels - uncomfortable. Also marble table top looked clean but when sun shone on table wine glass marks still on table and grubby looking.

Food was excellent. However we waited 2 hours from entry to be served main course, after being served starter after 40 minutes.

Desperately in need of some organisation and additional staffing. Put this down to just opening after Covid and hope for improvement.

We were seated at a tight corner table in the bar, which reduced the sense of bar atmosphere but nonetheless felt cosy and intimate. We went for the set menu option, which was fantastic value for money - halloumi salad for me and ham hock terrine for him, followed by steak frites with house salad for each of us - and really delicious.

I had to leave sharp so chased the order up with our server, but would note that the waiting time was not at all excessive. In fact, the service was swift, efficient and pleasant throughout, and we felt extremely well taken care of.

I'm looking forward to going back when I'm not on the clock so that I can order dessert and cocktails too 😊
