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.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. We were very impressed. One small criticism would be the choice for vegetarians. We will definitely return. A beautiful dining room with fabulous views and attentive staff. We also checked that the tip would go to staff and were assured that this was the case. Our server said it was a great place to work and the management value the workforce.

Dined here last night, the place is beautiful and if your lucky enough to get a window seat then you have lovely views over Edinburgh’s princes street.
We had a voucher for steak and chips, the steak was lovely but unfortunately the waiter got the food mixed up, easy mistake I guess but we all got the correct food. My steak was to be medium but it was rare, so slightly disappointed but no huge deal, the chips and side salad was so tasty. The waiter was apologetic and offered us a couple of desserts and coffee to make up for it, we didn’t really complain as such as the food was still nice I just left the bit that was too rare however his hospitality skills were impeccable so well done to the fabulous waiter who was dashing about making sure all other diners were having an enjoyable meal. I would definitely return and all the staff are just lovely and welcoming, the decor is beautiful.

On a sunny summer’s day in central Edinburgh Twenty was an oasis of calm and cool. The staff were very attentive, the venue was excellent as was the view. The food choice was limited yet the quality was acceptable if not stunning.

Had a great experience here yesterday. We had wine and cocktails. The wine was excellent and the cocktails were well made and strong! They made me one that wasn’t on the menu too which I appreciated. We will definitely come back as the restaurant looks amazing.

We had never had the pleasure of dining in this establishment before but were kindly treated to a voucher for steak frites for two and a bottle of house wine. We were seated at a lovely big round table at the window with gorgeous views of princess street and the castle.
We opted to add on afew extra sides, and a sauce each, peppercorn for me and garlic butter for the other half. The creamy mash which was to DIE FOR! Mac and cheese and “seasonal veg” which was actually asparagus wrapped in bacon, worth noting if you were veggie.
We ended the meal with an Eton mess dessert which was beautifully presented as a sphere which had a little hammer to smash it open. Very novel and impressive! Service was prompt and polite and the ambiance is very chilled and relaxed. We were pleasantly surprised and will definitely return.
