Having retained its Michelin star for the 10th year in a row in 2012, Number One is certainly one of Edinburgh's top restaurants. Executive Chef Jeff Bland and his team offer a full a la carte menu plus a six-course tasting menu of contemporary and traditional Scottish favourites in a setting that includes golden velvet banquettes and rich-red lacquered walls. For something more low key guests can head to Hadrian's which is the hotel's brasserie featuring a cosmopolitan menu of international and Scottish dishes. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner this casual restaurant is perfect for those looking for good quality food in an informal setting.
