Booked for birthday celebrations with friends. What a lovely afternoon tea with prosecco! Unable to finish cakes so we were able to take them away with us.

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.

    Very helpful staff and a lovely afternoon tea

    Food was good, however we were sat at the table at the corner near where the entrance is and every time the door opened we were left with the draft and it was very cold, especially on a winters night...didn't matter that there was a heater plugged in next to us, the heat that it gave off wasn't very warm. So a bit disappointed especially when it isn't that cheap to dine in the brassiere.

    First time at the restaurant, would highly recommend it. From the ambience and grandeur of the setting, in addition to attentative staff, all round experience was first class.

    Very nice touch brininging out a plate iced in chocolate for happy anniversary and complimentary cakes.

    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.
