If you're hoping to go on a luxurious short break in Scotland, there is nowhere quite like Edinburgh. Head to 21212 Restaurant, however, and you'll get to enjoy particularly stylish accommodation and fine dining in what is sure to make for a memorable break.
Situated on Royal Terrace in the heart of the Scottish capital, it could not be easier to reach 21212 Restaurant. Just a ten-minute walk from Waverley Station, within moments of disembarking your train into Edinburgh you could be enjoying a sumptuous meal at the Michelin-starred restaurant.
Run by award-winning head chef Paul Kitching, the eatery was opened in May 2009 and quickly went on to secure a range of industry prizes for its combination of traditional French fare fused with modern culinary techniques.
The restaurant's unique name comes from the signature five-course gourmet dinner menu where you have a choice of two dishes for the starter, main and dessert - complemented by the set serving of soup and cheese, so eating here is likely to be an experience that you simply will not have anywhere else!
No matter what you choose from the menu, you are sure to find at least one of the bottles from the extensive wine proves to be the ideal match to what you eat.
You can have both lunch and dinner in the 38-seater restaurant, although for a truly luxurious eating experience, why not book one of the private dining rooms? Having a meal in either ATE or Pod puts you away from the hustle and bustle of the main restaurant making for a fabulously intimate culinary experience.
However, there is much more to 21212 Restaurant than simply top-quality cuisine and, if you are looking for a hotel in Edinburgh, it is certainly worth considering booking one of the four rooms here.
In line with the restaurant's name, the bedrooms are titled 1, 2, 12 and 21. Each features an individual theme and style, although all have luxury facilities such as a flatscreen plasma TV, ensuite bathroom, wireless internet connection and extensive storage space.
All four rooms offer stunning views of the city and if you stay at either 1 or 21 on a clear day you may be able to see as far as the Firth of Forth.
Whether you're looking for amazing accommodation, are keen to indulge in fine dining or a combination of the two during your time in Edinburgh, 21212 Restaurant is somewhere that you simply must not miss.
