This was our first visit to this restaurant, and it excelled in all areas. It is quite different from the other Michelin starred restaurants in Edinburgh, but every bit as good. Each dish contained an unusual variety of flavours, all of which seems to work well together. Service was also excellent. I'm sure we will return before too long.

The food and composition was excellent with a 5 star rating without question. I would however advise anyone booking to make sure that there is not a tourist group booked at the same time. We had that experience at a Saturday lunch were 80 % of the guests in the restaurant belonged to the somewhat harried tourist group with a... More

Downstairs for food and OMG what an experience - the menu is criptic with the server expaining what everything is - nothing we ate dissapointed- the soup with wasabi popcorn was truly outstanding.

We dined at 21212 in July and enjoyed a great meal with lovely food, good service and an enjoyable evening. When considering whether to give 5 stars I used a benchmark of the other fine Ednburgh restaurants that we have dined in and for us 21212 just didn't quite measure up to the likes of the Plumed Horse, RMW or...

I booked my birthday dinner at 21212 in July this year. My experience there is unmatched to anything I've ever experienced. Not just in terms of the food, but the venue and the service were impeccable. The staff made a point of wishing me a happy birthday (which I had mentioned in the booking 6 months earlier), they were friendly... More

Food was unbelievable. You can watch the chefs cooking the food. Make sure you watch them plating up the food. Eaten in most of the Michelin star restaurants in Edinburgh but this is by the far the best one. Can't wait to go back. You have to book pretty far in advance but its worth the wait.

One of our family members was celebrating a special birthday so eight of us went to 21212 as a treat. We had one of the large rooms available for small gatherings which faced onto the gardens at the back of the building. The welcome was warm, but not over-intrusive and the staff were extremely attentive and helpful. The meal from... More

We approached our visit to this restaurant with a great sense of anticipation, and although we had an enjoyable evening our overall feeling was of slight disappointment. First the good points: two outstandingly innovative and delicious starters, a superb sommelier who matched wines to each course, delightful and again innovative deserts and a wonderful selection of cheese. The service was... More

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
