    56 North - undoubtedly one of Edinburgh's best dining experiences!

    What an amazing night my wife and I had at 56 North! Receiving a very warm welcome from the staff - we were ushered to a lovely alcove setting. Very intimate. Having chosen the 5pm.com deal of a 4 course Christmas Dinner with bellinis we were delighted with the choice of canopes, starter, main course and sweet. Everything was delicious and served quickly even though the place was very busy. A great atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening and I would highly recommend 56 North to everyone. Even though we dined here through 5pm.com it's very reasonably priced and the bar is furnished with a magnificent array of drinks. We will come back again soon.

    A pure gem & worth a visit

    When we arrived we were met by a polite young man who made us welcome and showed us to our table, the service throughout was excellent without being intrusive. The food was absolutely terrific and decent sized portions, (the 5pm deal made it all the better value for money). All in all we were a party of four with no complaints at all but plenty plaudits for this establishment. I would highly recommend this bar/restaurant for a visit. You won’t regret it!!
