The Restaurant

Paul Kitching’s 21212 opened in Edinburgh in May 2009. It has received rave reviews and numerous awards since.


21212 sits in a listed Georgian townhouse in Edinburgh’s Royal Terrace. Set over four floors, it’s light, spacious and airy. It’s also elegant, sumptuously decorated and enjoys commanding views to the Firth of Forth and beyond from the upper level rooms.

As well as the 38 seat restaurant with open kitchen, there’s a drawing room, two private dining areas and four luxury bedrooms. Many of the period features have been retained, complemented by contemporary lighting and designer furnishing.


Paul has stayed true to his contemporary French cooking style but has added a unique approach to his menu combinations. Though the menu never has more than three choices for any course, variety is achieved by having a new menu each week. Even regular diners will have something new to experience on their next visit.

It’s accessible too, with two course lunches starting at just £28 on weekdays.


The restaurant’s extensive wine list means there’s something to suit every palate. And if you need some assistance to select a wine that’s just right for your menu choices, our sommelier is always there to give advice.

The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Saturday.
