Twenty Princes Street, 20 Princes Street, Edinburgh EH2 2AN

PRICE RANGE: around £50 for dinner for two, with a glass of house wine each

Princes Street is best known for its gardens and bustling shops, yet Twenty Princes Street is sure to put it back on Edinburgh’s vibrant food map. The recently relaunched restaurant, located in the first floor of the Royal British Hotel, combines Victorian grandeur with touches of elegant modernity to create a remarkable dining space. The striking views overlooking Edinburgh Castle only contribute to the eatery’s luxurious appeal and are the perfect backdrop to indulge in a delicious meal.

Once we have taken in the stylish décor and marvelled at the views, we order from the extensive menu. Our lovely waitress Caitlin tempts us with the bread of the day, a warm, gooey Parmesan wheel which promises good things to follow.

Starters arrive shortly after; the slow cooked octopus with soft potato gnocchi and Serrano ham has just the right hint of smoked paprika to give it a kick, while the brown bread ice cream melting atop the fillet of beef tartare is deliciously mind blowing.

The mains are just as beautifully arranged on the plate and are equally sumptuous. Although the haunch of venison with layered potato is delicious, my halibut and Chinese crab dumpling dish steals the show. It comes with coriander, lime and chilli jellies which are dissolved in hot water to taste, creating a delicious broth that perfectly binds the dish together -DIY style!

The creative and stunning plating is also present in the desserts. We order the caramelized white chocolate cheesecake and the ‘Fire & Ice’ banoffee baked Alaska. The latter ends the night with a bit of theatre as it arrives smoking and is flambéed right in front of us. Both sweet treats are prompty devoured and are the perfect end to a delicious meal.

True foodies won’t want to miss out on this up and coming fine dining spot; award-wininng chef Tony Sarton’s creative menu, the elegant décor and attentive service make for a remarkable evening!
