Booked a table at Restaurant Martin Wishart for my partners birthday. The whole experience was fabulous. Chris had an issue with gluten and the staff were really helpful in helping choose and altering dishes so that they were gluten free. We had the 5 course tasting menu and an extra course of cheese. The food was delicious. Service was fantastic.... More

MW is incredibly reliable - in 8 or 10 visits over 12 or so years we have never had a meal that was less than delicious. It is formal and traditional in ambience and quite quiet - not a place to be raucous - but friendly and not stuffy. It is expensive (£550 for 4) but every course is carefully... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here - the whole experience was very special and we could not fault anything. Very special but too good to save for just special occasions!

Loved everything about the experience. Very nice restaurant with a lovely and varied menu - we ate the tasting menu and paired wines - and exceptional service. The quality of the food was top class which is what you'd expect from a restaurant of this calibre. The paired wine option was worthwhile and really added to the experience. We hope... More

Having looked forward to dining at Martin Wishart we were excited about our lunch date to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our meet and greet was very professional and our table service was seamless. The waiters were unobtrusive and pitched the service just right. The standard of food was tremendous for the price paid of £28.50 each with additional £10.00 for... More

Our first re-visit for a few years and with two 70/80 year olds to boot...... So a bit of trepidation in the air going in to lunch that transpired to be completely unfounded - quality of food and service as excellent as before. Even the 'olds' tucked in and enjoyed all of it.

We had not been to Martin Wishart's for some years. For our celebratory dinner, we opted for the tasting menus and champagne. I chose the seafood one and it was truly fine dining at its best. From the canapes (beetroot, carrot) to the chocolate petit fours at the end, the meal was a delight with excellent courses all the way... More

We were genuinely very impressed by the quality of the food here, from the savoury macaroon canapés to the dessert which was probably the best dessert I've ever had we were delighted with every course. The staff were really warm and friendly, not pretentious at all and the dining room was comfortable and had a good atmosphere on a bust... More

Second visit to MW again food and service impeccable. Evening spoilt by the selfish couple who thought it appropriate to bring a babe in arms, who through no fault of his own ( just his parents) screamed an awful lot. Not only is it wrong for their fellow diners but even more so for the child. I believe more restaurateurs... More

Still ( by a fair distance) the best high end food and restaurant in Edinburgh, probably in Scotland and equal to some of the best in London. We all had the tasting menus and everything was sublime, from the amuse bouches to the fantastic petit fours with the coffee. I won't go into tedious detail , but to me the... More
