About Number One

Widely recognised as one of Scotland’s finest restaurants, Number One is a gastronomic retreat from the city streets. Set in the Balmoral hotel on Princes Street, everything from the grand entrance of the hotel itself down to the fine details of the restaurant’s service is spectacularly well executed. Wit its luscious decadence, the interior of Number One is clearly designed with special occasions in mind. The feel is formal yet unstuffy – no wonder that the restaurant picked up 2008’s Fine Dining Experience Award at the 2008 Scottish Restaurant Awards. And with a Michelin star to add to the many other accolades bestowed upon it you can guarantee that Number One’s thoughtful cuisine, made with excellent Scottish ingredients, lives up to the expectations set by the surroundings.

Fantastic food, service, and all round experience. Heading back as soon as we're back in town.

We had an absolutely fabulous meal at Number One. It was everything you would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was impressive, very attentive without being obtrusive. I'll be back!

Had a fantastic meal at Number One, Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh. The rabbit to start was immense, moist and perfectly cooked. Main was wild salmon, again stunning. The cheese board was very nice. Service was great, very attentive and chatty staff. This comes at a cost but worth every penny :)

Number One @ The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh is a superb restaurant. I get the impression that Edinburghers regard it as unfashionable, at least compared with such as the over-worshipped M.W.'s for example. This is good news for those like me who are suspicious of the herd instinct. Once again our recent visit was most enjoyable. Food superb, staff pleasant and efficient. Atmosphere calm and relaxing. This is an expensive restaurant which warrants the expense.

Went to Number one in Edinburgh's Princess Street Balmoral Hotel on Saturday evening and once again had the best meal ever started with the goats cheese - yummy then had Salmon for main and banana souffle to follow excellent. the little titbits in between were excellent too as was the bread. Not the cheapest but certainly the best!

A fantastic dining experience. Top marks all round. Food, wine, service and ambiance of the highest standards.

We booked Number One to experience fine dining and a Michelin star restaurant in Edinburgh for the first time. The flavours and combinations for the tasting menu were incredible, service was attentive without being intrusive. Would highly recommend.

As always prefect

'Number One' at The Balmoral, Edinburgh: Fantastic, beautiful food and impeccable service. We loved everything about it, from the Skye crab amuse-bouche to the chocolates served with the coffee. A wonderful eating experience!

Our second visit to Number One at the Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh.

A elegant, private and cosy dining room with friendly and relatively informal service but still the standard you would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. Having been to many restaurants in London, the food here is as good and in some cases better. Hand dived scallops with black pudding and the best (again) souffle for dessert made this a memorable dinner. Will definitely return again - by then they should have two stars.

We dined at Number One at the Balmoral Hotel when we stayed at the Hotel after christmas and our experience was what you might expect of an award winning restaurant. service and food both impressive, everything artistically presented and the atmosphere warm and inviting. It is, of course, expensive, so it has to be a rare treat, but we would certainly go again

We went for our office Christmas lunch - lovely ambience with very spacious and comfortable table setting. We had the Christmas menu which was excellent although the portions were a little on small side. The service was excellent and the Sommelier had very good suggestions.

We had a wonderful meal at No1 at the Balmoral in Edinburgh probably one of the best meals we have had in Edinburgh

Top Class service and food would only recommend to friends who have enough spare money and style when eating out.

I had an absolutely superb meal at Number One in Edinburgh. The tasting menu was inventive and made excellent use of seasonal and local produce. The accompanying wines were well selected and introduced by the knowledgeable sommelier. There was an intimate atmosphere in a luxurious setting and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking to spoil themselves whilst in The city.

Just book and go. Words can not explain this experience, go and be royalty for an inexpensive night, with all the experience of a top class chef, food was exceptional. Service 100%.

Booked a table at Number One in the Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh as a Birthday treat and because you should experience fine dining at least once in your life. Number One did not disappoint! The staff were incredibly courteous and helpful. The restaurant was quiet and seating was such that you didn't feel like you were on top of the other diners. Finally, the food was absolutely fantastic. The amuse bouche between courses certainly amused our bouches. Great evening all round!

The meal we had at the Number 1, The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and the food was beautiful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Excelent meal, venue and service.

A good meal and very good service.
