A highly memorable experience

We enjoyed a superb dining experience at Restaurant Martin Wishart. The interior design was very elegant and stylish. Service was exceptional - very friendly and professional. The food, needless to say, was truly outstanding. A highly memorable experience

My wife and I visited on a Thursday evening in the middle of August during the Fringe Festival and having booked months before. Unsurprisingly the nicely decorated but compact dining room was full. Everything started very well. Greeting, coats, seating, pre-dinner drink (at the table as there is no bar) and menus (a la carte, traditional tasting menu, fish tasting... More

Always the place to go for a special occasion and this was my husband's birthday. We had the tasting menu with matching wines which was fabulous from amuse bouches right to the coffee and petit fours.

We did have an enjoyable evening and maybe I was expecting too much from this Michelin starred restaurant. The last one we ate at in UK was L'Enclume so it is perhaps unfair to compare the two. But the passion and the pride of the staff at L'Enclume was totally missing at Martin Wishart's. They served the food efficiently enough,... More

My wife and I had dinner at the restaurant on Tuesday evening, all very nice, service as you would expect at a Michelin star restaurant, we chose to eat there as we are owners at Cameron House and having eaten at Martin Wishart's restaurant there many times, we thought while we were in Edinburgh for the tattoo we would try...

I was a little disappointed when I read the menu as I do not eat fish but they accommodated me, swapping dishes here and there and I was blown away by every single course! The accompanying wines matched perfectly. The staff were friendly yet highly efficient and knowledgable. I could not recommend this restaurant more highly.

I flew over to eat at MW because of reputation. I am sure folks who reviewed have eaten at a starred restaurant. I am not sure if this restaurant deserts a star. It is absolutely over-rated. I am writing this review comparing to other 1 star Michelin star. 1. The staff is just robots reading off a list of ingredients.... More

The restaurant was not as big as I expected, however it was full and there was a great atmosphere. We all opted for the meat taster menu with the matching wine pairings. It was truly an exquisite dining experience. The courses and wine were served at a nice interval so at no point did you feel rushed and three hours... More

We had stopped visiting Martin Wishart when it felt like a temple where food worshippers dined in hushed silence. In the last 4 months, we have been twice for lunch and am really pleased to see that the place is buzzing and the atmosphere more welcoming and informal. The set lunch menu is under £30 and represents excellent value. If... More
