In the majestic 5-star setting of The Scotsman Hotel, North Bridge Brasserie offers a modern take on Scottish favourites. An upper-floor dining room filled with original features is offset by a slick downstairs bar.

Surrounded by ornately corniced ceilings and smooth wood-panelled walls, guests can enjoy elegantly presented, gourmet dishes from the North Bridge restaurant menu. Sample spring chicken with saffron risotto cake and roast sweetcorn, or roasted North Sea squid with smoked Shetland mussel fritters. Classic desserts are served with experimental flair at North Bridge restaurant in Edinburgh, like rhubarb and elderflower Eton mess, or peanut butter parfait with a sesame macaron.

In the North Bridge bar, guests can enjoy chic cocktails and a cosmopolitan drinks list against a backdrop of brushed steel, under-lit smoked glass, and marble. Fine wines and a connoisseur-worthy whisky list are also on offer.

North Bridge Brasserie is just 3 minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station and a stone’s throw from the lively shopping strip of Princes Street.

    Have eaten here several times. Beautiful setting and good food. Bar staff excellent as usual Unfortunately evening let down by very poor restaurant service. Waitress watching other tables while taking our order so we had to repeat everything. Starters came on time but I had to ask for side dish ordered with main course. Wine waiter didn't have wine ready then couldn't open the bottle. Very disappointing because this is not what we expected having dined there before. Bar staff saved the evening but I would think twice about going back.

    Beautiful setting. Incredibly attentive staff but the star of the show was the food. Presentation along with taste made it a wonderful day.

    Starter and main course Food a little disappointing. Felt like Monday eve all main chefs are on a day off. !!!!!!! The pudding was fantastic. I hayd the apple and pears and it was one of the best I have tasted. The first glass of wine was off but rectified by the person in charge. Orange juice was not fresh .Cost a lot of money and certainly not worth it.

    We had a lovely time in the North Bridge Brasserie. The afternoon tea selection was delicious and the waiting staff were very attentive. They even went the extra mile to put a candle on one of the trio of cakes as a surprise for our friend as this was her birthday treat. We would recommend the afternoon tea and would visit again.

    Fabulous staff really friendly and welcoming - most attentive . Items included in the actual afternoon tea were very average - scones were quite hard around edges - sandwiches were very average - a little disappointing to be honest.
