Faultless!

The last time we had a tasting menu at Martin Wishart (a couple of years ago), we left hungry and tipsy, due to a slight imbalance in food and wine portion sizes. This has obviously been addressed since as our last trip was perfect. Lovely food in respectable serving sizes, with perfectly matched... read more

Would recommend the restaurant to anyone. Food was delicious, staff were very friendly and helpful. We opted for the tasting menu with wine flight, this was an excellent way to try lots of different food and drink.

The food was absolutely amazing and we only had the set lunchtime menu. The tastes and textures were superb. I was a little surprised by the service because the waiters gave very little interaction. The restaurant manager did have a brief chat which was nice and they were good with the people who were obviously regulars but not with us... More

fish/vegetarian/wine tasting menu £150 per head. Early sitting due to busy Friday evening. Waiters very attentive and accomadating. Food and wine matching beautifully. Classic interior. Looking forward to going back soon.

Fourth visit over a number of years. We were blown away the first time and I can honestly say, the whole experience of eating here as not diminished one iota. The only noticeable difference for us was I think this was the first time we had seen the wine pairing on the menu. Between the 4 of us, we had... More

We visited on June 16 and, surprisingly, Martin Wishart was the only disappointing meal we had on the entire trip, which speaks volumes for both the amazing food scene across Scotland and how it has passed Martin Wishart by. I had two restaurant reservations I had made well in advance and was looking forward to when I made my whisky... More

This is that rare thing: a non-veggie restaurant that feeds its vegetarian guests with as much care as the omnivores. The vegetarian tasting menu, proudly touted by the waiters to each customer when they arrive, was seven (or nine with amuse-bouche additions) awe-inspiringly delicious courses. It's that kind of fine dining cooking that actually benefits from all the fuss that's... More
