MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The Balmoral is one of the top hotels in Scotland and its grand Edwardian façade conceals a traditional interior that has been sympathetically modernised. Start with drinks in Bar Prince or the chic cocktail bar, then head through to the stylish Number One restaurant. It might be set in the basement but its richly upholstered banquettes and red lacquered walls give it a plush, luxurious feel, while the professional serving team bring plenty of personality to the room. Cooking is classically rooted yet modern and intricate, with combinations designed to complement rather than overpower one other. Prime Scottish ingredients are proudly utilised and the carefully crafted dishes also have a Scottish heart. To finish, there’s a rather appealing bon bon trolley to choose from!
