Restaurant description

Marrying classic French cuisine with sublime Scottish produce, Brasserie Prince is a chic, relaxed restaurant in The Balmoral.

Echoes of Paris abound, from the gleaming mirrored and brass accents to the buttery soft leather banquettes. The views of Edinburgh and the staggering hills surrounding the capital are a reminder of Brasserie Prince’s position at No. 1 Princes Street.

Serving seasonally inspired, classic bistro dishes that harmonise quintessentially French flavours with local Scottish ingredients.

Located on the city’s iconic thoroughfare, Princes Street, Brasserie Prince is a quick 1-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station.

    Disappointed underwhelming food. Service was friendly and attentive but wouldn’t go back.

    Welcome was good and service was attentive without being intrusive. Wines were very good indeed. We had the 2 courses for £19.50 offer, and the choice of 2 starter were fine and my Normandy onion soup was excellent, but one of the three main dishes (the chicken) wasn't available leaving only salmon and a fortunately delicious risotto to chose from. Toilets are a long way down and visits need planning ahead!!

    My expectation was high and the Beetroot & goat’s cheese salad with red pepper vinaigrette Starter was excellent. I miss understood the menu and the concept of Iced raspberry soufflé. This was entirely my fault but we were kindly reimbursed. The staff were attentive polite and friendly service was excellent. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. Thank you for a lovely evening we will be back.
