The perfect evening

I visited 21212 with my wife for her birthday in January. I had high hopes for the evening with the restaurants reputation of outstanding calibre. All I can say that neither of us were disappointed! It was truly spectacular, the "chicken, chips and mushy peas" was certainly anything but! It was... read more

Came here with the family to celebrate wife's birthday. We were warmly greeted at the front desk and show to our table. Although it was Saturday evening but the restaurant was only half full however it was full by end of evening. The deco is very stylish and trendy. All six of us sat comfortably at the big table by...

Edinburgh is really my "home" city, I was brought up and educated at Kelso in The Borders, and although we live in the Deep South these days, we do get back to the city fairly regularly. When we are there we usually try and sample one of the many splendid restaurants there, and at the end of January we thought... More

21212 is one of the two Michelin starred restaurants in Edinburgh, the other one being Number One. 21212 is not located in the old part of town where the castle is but about 10 minute walk from the main train station on the Royal Terrace. Apparently 21212 equally serves as hotel but I only have experienced the restaurant and not... More

My wife and I went Christmas shopping in Edinburgh. As a treat we booked into 21212, they have a few exclusive bedrooms above the Michelin star restaurant. It's the first time I've had a Michelin star breakfast and loved the chefs take on bacon and eggs. Dinner saw us favour the taster menu. Amazing! Easy to justify the price when... More

Got a voucher as a wedding present for 21212, so went along on a Saturday night. Very small, dining room feel, service was very good the setting a little plain and to be honest not much of an atmosphere. We had the 5 course menu. The food looked good and tasted good but for the price you really wanted to... More

Perfect position in the Royal Terrace, beautifully decorated dinning room with a relaxed atmosphere, very nice welcome and excellent service, in fact the staff were superb throughout the evening. We went with 4 friends, and shared a great evening but our thoughts varied on the fare served. Some thought it to be style over quality, others thought the flavours were... More

That was memorable experience! The service was 5/5 and food 10/5! Couldn't let myself leave a crumb on my plate! Night menu is £49 for 3 course but it is completely worth it. I would highly recommend starter with salmon ( I was literally crying, it was that delicious). As a dessert we ordered a cheese plate (which was one... More

Excellent decor and the service was 5 star however it is fine dinning so expect to pay over the odds and that includes the wine list. That said the whole experience was very enjoyable and the food was of a high standard.
