Ended up having a few meetings over Coffee and food - the staff were super professional and attentive and did not mind me taking up a table for most of the day even if it was coffee most times. Ended up meeting my partner there to enjoy the views and some dinner. The food was top notch and so was... More

We treated ourselves to brunch on the 4th floor of Harvey Nichols. The window seat had an amazing view over the ice skating rink on St Andrews Square. The staff were lovely and the food was delicious. We had the eggs benedict, fruit scone and a toasted muffin topped with smoked salmon, spinach and pancetta (they made this specially as... More

My husband and I visited this week for a quick drink after some shopping and it was great. There is a stunning view over the city and staff very friendly. The facilities are great with a selection of eateries and shopping on offer.

Visited for Sunday light lunch. Family of 2 adults and a 5 year old child. A lot of the menu was not available as they ran out. The adults eventually opted for chicken Caesar salads and the child had cheesy pasta. My wife had 1 crouton in her salad but I got 4. Wow. My daughter' cheesy pasta was dried... More

Called in for a hot chocolate whilst browsing in this fab store. Admittedly it was lunchtime and having had a late cooked breakfast only wanted a drink break so wasn't too surprised at the fair wait for our order to arrive. What we were surprised about was the 'hot' chocolate was served cold! However, on pointing this out of the... More

With the scenery of Edinburgh Castle and the Firth of Forth, the Forth Floor Restaurant at Harvey Nichols certainly has a sense of drama about it. The stylish elements of the decor, such as the circular lights which begin to glow red once the sky becomes darker, and the Scottish flavours found through the restaurant menu all inspire an adventurous dining experience with the finest quality food. Meanwhile, the brasserie makes for an enjoyable alternative, presenting a modern take on conventional European cuisine, and the extensive wine list includes over 350 different varieties of wines and champagnes. During the summer months, it is also possible to enjoy meals outside on the large terrace, overlooking all of Edinburgh.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
