Amazing food in a quiet, well-appointed environment with elegant table service and highly professional waitstaff. We enjoyed it immensely!

I'm trying to think of the best part of the meal but as there were so many great things about our meal it's hard to pick just one. The layout of the restaurant meant that we were not sitting close to our neighbouring diners, the acoustics were great so we spoke without having to shout, the staff were so friendly... More

We had our sons 21st birthday here and as a family we were in the intimate dining room, it was truly magnificent. We were treated to exceptional service, the most wonderful food and it all made for a terrific special occasion. I have no reason to doubt children would be welcome and treated well but the truth is the food... More

Let's not beat about the bush. This is one of best experiences of the Edinburgh Fringe. Warm hospitality, adventurous and delicious food including the best cheese board this side of the Channel. Tripadvisor has censored my two previous attempts to review 21212 as I had the temerity to criticise an earlier unreasonable (and defamatory) review. Ignore such petty gripes (check... More

Stopped here for a weekend in June with a birthday meal (mine) on the Saturday night. Had previously experienced Paul's cooking at Juniper in Altrincham (which I absolutely loved) and this visit to 21212 was well overdue. The price of the set meal was pretty reasonable by the standards of other Michelin (and Michelin-wannabe) gaffs in the city, though the... More

We managed to get a last minute cancellation and were just so glad! Ok, it's not cheap but for the exquisite food and the attentive service it is great value. It goes without saying that everything we had as just great but the highlight had to be the cheese course and the detailed tour of the board, as a cheese... More

The high light was watching the chef and team work to produce the food. You can see and hear them as they over look the room behind a glass wall. Of course food was excellent and well worth the visit. Will certainly go again when we go back to the Fringe Festival.

Festival time in Edinburgh again and a chance to introduce a dear Edinburgh friend to 21212 and its unusual, some may say, surreal slant on dining. The luxurious decor and furnishings of the upstairs lounge/bar is in itself worth seeing and it also affords views to the Forth from this piano nobile drawing room of this Edinburgh (very edge of)...

Had a really great spacious room that wanted for nothing. The couple of days we stayed - it rained... But in a great location, so not really a problem. Ate here on our second night - food fantastic - one of the best restaurants we have eaten in to date

I visited 21212 on Saturday 23rd of August 2014 with my partner and two friends as a treat for my 30th birthday after being desperate to have dinner here for a few years - without having the opportunity. It did not disappoint. We actually arrived half an hour early (in error) for our meal but this wasn't a problem for... More
