    Great welcome followed by a fantastic experience with a staff member who was extremely helpful when it came to drinks and wine. Everybody was very friendly and very attentive. The atmosphere was lovely. We enjoyed the food very much, particularly the chicken main dish which in fact should have been served with a small jug of extra jus on the side as it was delicious! A very special and fun experience. Would definitely return. Thankyou to the front and back of house staff!

    This was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. The service was attentive but not intrusive, the food was well presented, full of flavour and texture. Highly recommended and somewhere to return to again.

    The entire Fine Dining experience at Number One The Balmoral Hotel Edinburgh was simply splendid from the exemplary service, the fantastic food and the overall ambience of the Restaurant.

    The evening was a success because of the attentive service, the four courses were superb, the explanation of the wines added to the experience, the special Anniversary gift for my wife, the note accompanying the wine list and being escorted to our taxi. Thank you.
