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.

    We dined here as a party of 5 to celebrate our daughter's graduation. As requested we were given a table in the window. The starters were superb (haggis and black pudding french toast, mussels and soup). Everyone loved their mains, though I would say that my husband's fillet steak was not as rare as he was expecting it to be. Overall we felt the meal was good value for money - £277 including the service charge. After dinner we had a drink in Juniper Bar. The decor and ambience there are really cool.

    Filet steak was beautifully cooked and the knife slid through like butter. Service was excellent too. Great to have the cocktail bar beside the restaurant. Cocktails were great and the staff are very friendly.

    Lovely, relaxed lunch with friends. Food and service was very good. It would be good if the menu had some lighter options as mostly large main meals on offer. Would definitely go back. Burger and fries were very good.

    Came for a casual birthday meal with a few friends. The service throughout the whole evening was terrible with no one welcoming us for a very long time and the waiters taking a hugeee amount of time to bring any drinks or food and messed up the order multiple times which were very simple. Do not waste your time and money here I can’t believe a restaurant can operate like this. It wasn’t even that busy just terrible organisation. Was very tempted to walk out without paying!

    My friends and I met up for the first time in two years. We had a lovely time and we all chose the two course lunch menu. The food was good but portions would be small for men. It is a lovely location and the atmosphere is good with tables/booths well spaced.

    No response in advance regarding my food intolerances. Had to ask on arrival and no note against my reservation. My friends steak was well done when she ordered rare. It was replaced but meant we ate main courses separately. Service good but slow. Overall disappointing as have been before and was exceptional

    The place looked nice but felt a bit soulless and the food was poor. Triple cooked chips were decent but bean burger was very bland, tasteless and not a nice texture.

    We had a lovely time with friends. Our only complaint is the desserts. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was very dry and it did not help there was very little sauce and the Crème Brûlée was very runny.
