About One Square
One square table
The food and service were both excellent. I would certainly return, but to visit without a voucher would be expensive. As a voucher customer value for money was excellent, but it was slightly annoying that the voucher only applied to a restricted menu (high-end restaurants tend to do this), and the promised extra 10% discount included with the voucher only applied to the off-voucher menu!
We really enjoyed the food at One Square, and thought it was good value for money. It was a shame the waiter felt unable to advise us whether we needed side dishes - he said he hadn't seen the plates of food yet so didn't know how big they were. Also struggled to recommend a wine to go with my food. However, when my partner mentioned it was my birthday they put a birthday plate with some chocolates together, which was a lovely touch. We would definitely go back.
Modern Scottish brasserie in the West End
A welcoming brasserie located on Festival Square in the heart of Edinburgh, One Square offers a modern Scottish take on drinking and dining. One Square is somewhere to spend leisurely afternoons, to meet with friends for dinner or sit out on the terrace overlooking Edinburgh Castle and sip a perfectly-poured G&T. Gin is a house speciality with more than 90 different varieties available behind the bar, including their very own One Square Gin made by the local Pickering’s Distillery. The wine list has also been expertly considered and there is a refreshingly varied selection of Scottish beer.
Scottish produce and professional service
Modern, seasonal and honest, the One Square menu features an inventive range of Scottish favourites, with an ever-changing selection of signature dishes on offer. From prime rib-eye steak and Atlantic hake to Shetland mussels, the focus is firmly on the finest Scottish ingredients from trusted, local suppliers.
Although the atmosphere is informal, service is never anything but professional. With a private room for up to forty guests, One Square is just as suited to a special celebration as it is to a working lunch, a quick bite to eat between shops or an indulgent afternoon tea.
For an even more memorable experience, try Dining at The Pass, where you can watch the chefs apply the finishing touches to your dishes just before they are served.
