One Square Bar and Restaurant

1 Festival Square Edinburgh EH3 9SR 0131 221 6422

We say

One Square is not just a restaurant and bar worth staying in your hotel for, but one that is worth checking out even if you are not staying. The chic hardwood main space gazes out through massive windows on to Festival Place, the Usher Hall and up to the hulk of Edinburgh Castle. The menu is equally dramatic, with the highlight a huge iced platter of fresh Scottish seafood. There is real creativity too evident in dishes such as Scottish lobster salad served with a tempura claw, wild seasonal leaves and a fragrant vanilla shellfish sauce. The Kitchen Table awaits small groups looking to get closer to the cooking action. The steaks are superb too at a hotel restaurant that for a change realises the need to take fresh, local produce seriously. This multi-use venue is a winner on so many counts, whether you want to pop in for a buzzy breakfast, laze over afternoon tea or slip by when the sun goes down for well mixed some cocktails.
