Thanks for taking the time to review. We are so glad you enjoyed it so much. You are correct we are a Grade A building therefore windows can only do so much with blocking outside noise. Some people actually say the cobbled stone sound puts...More

This was our 3rd visit to 21212. The chef's continue to maintain the expected high standard. The staff are friendly and very well informed therefore excellent at explaining the (sometimes) unusual food that is served. An excellent dinning experience. The location in Edinburgh is perfect,...More

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
