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.

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.

We didnt actually eat here, just had drinks in Juniper. It was a lovely environment to enjoy a drink, not too noisy but with a nice buzz and lovely views. The only thing stopping me giving 5 stars was the service, the person showing us to our table was very helpful but the bar tender who brought our drinks never smiled once.

I stayed at the hotel so had two dinners and two breakfasts. Enjoyed all, great steaks and I recommend the Eton Mess!

Pear Drop Fizz was outstanding!

Small issues, it was a little bit cool in the room, even though it was hot outside and it wasn't always easy to get the attention of the staff.

Service was very slow. Waited a long time to order and receive drinks. I reserved a table in the bar area as we were having drinks only but when we arrived, I was told we would need to sit in the restaurant as they did not have a table available in the bar. The bramble cocktail I ordered was OK, nothing special. My husband ordered a pint and it arrived flat. Overall, it was a disappointing experience.

Attended with friends for a belated birthday celebration due to COVID. Champagne was flowing, the food was amazing (OMG the beef cheeks!!). Service and ambience could not have been better. Thank you to all staff in both Juniper Bar and Twenty restaurant for a fantastic afternoon.
