    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.

  • ((((( 8 November 2016 by Peter from Lower Shiplake

    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.

    Scallops are amazing!!

  • ((((( 30 October 2016 by PAULINE from Ashby-de-la-Zouch

    We had the tasting menu and enjoyed every mouthful. Each dish was a spectacular work of art.
    The staff were friendly and very informative.
    The whole ambiance was tremendous.

    My partner and mysel enjoyed a lovely dinner at number one; we especially liked the amuse buche with caviar and lobster, the scallops with a wonderful Jerusalem artichoke (starter), and the roast fig (dessert). Matched wines were spot on and the atmosphere was warm and cosy. I would just recommend to refurbish the toilets which are undoubtedly clean and nice but look a bit outdated, especially the wallpaper of the gents.

    Had an evening meal here for my partners birthday. Staff were fantastic, very attentive. Food was outstanding! They even gave my partner a small birthday gift, absolutely brilliant experience and will most definitely be returning in the near future.
