Twenty Princes Street, Edinburgh, Review
This is another short and snappy post but thought it was worth sharing with you all the lovely dinner I had at Twenty Princes Street at the start of the week. Twenty Princes Street had been on my radar for a long time and when I was catching up with a good friend it seemed like the perfect place to meet.
The inside is gorgeous! I loved all the decoration and it’s got lovely views of the Castle. We were seated at a lovely table in the middle and it was a perfect viewing spot to see what everyone else had ordered.
The menu has a lot of things on it I like to eat but my eye was caught by the Salt and Rosemary baked sea bass with creme fraiche and chive potato salad and marinated vegetables. When I ordered the waitress said I had ordered well and it was one of her favourites. Getting the seal of approval from the staff is also a nice thing to hear. I really hoped I had chosen well.
The presentation of this dish gets a two thumbs up. I was so intrigued by my sea bass coming out and having to be broken out of a salt casing that I totally forgot to take a picture. The sea bass then had its skin removed before being served up on my plate. I love this attention to detail and it meant I had nothing to do but tuck in and enjoy. I can honestly say the sea bass was delicious. It was so tender and just fell apart. It tasted fantastic too. The salty, lemony taste was excellent. I enjoyed both the sides which came with the fish. For £16 this dish was well worth the money and I definitely will be ordering it again.
Overall it was a lovely evening in fabulous surroundings. The serving staff were very attentive and looked after us very well. Next time we visit we’ll try some cocktails next door before having some food.
