We came for a birthday dinner for my husband on our recent trip to Edinburgh and thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Number One. Everything was delicious, and we felt expertly looked-after. We’ll definitely return in the future!

We stayed at the Balmoral Hotel for one night during our short trip to Edinburgh and dined in both Palm Court and Number One. Staff friendly and food great.

Our third visit to Number One was so enjoyable, consistently high standards in all elements, food, service and surroundings. Highly recommended for a special evening, one of the best restaurants in Edinburgh.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

We each had the chef’s tasting menu and shared a wine pairing, and also each had a gin/tonic. Price, including tip, was 350 British pounds. I’m not too sure what the drinks cost, but you can probably see the menu online... More

You really need to contact the hotel directly. Use their website. I have a feeling they can based on the size of the room.

Memorable flavours and world-class cuisine. A truly outstanding culinary experience, worthy of its Michelin star for the 13th consecutive year. As one of the finest Edinburgh restaurants, 'Number One' presents an innovative blend of Scottish and French flavours. Saute Foie Gras with duck confit. Borders lamb, broad beans and grelot. Rhubarb and white chocolate panna cotta. Take a seat on the golden banquettes and sample some of Scotland's most creative dishes from our tasting menus. Equally striking are the original artworks from The Royal College of Art that hang on the red lacquered walls.
