I was up for the Open and based in Leith. So of course I had to try out this great restaurant again. I have been before. But not for at least five years. It's still superb. The service really is top notch. The food is clean and beautifully prepared and presently. Reminds me of the The Square in London. After... More

Had an amazing luncheon with my two adult sons. The staff was the most professional and helpful of any wait staff i encountered in scotland over 15 days. No issue with me having a three course luncheon and my sons a 7 course tasting menu. Everything prepared well, espcially good are the traditional french style sauces... great reductions and very...

From the minute we walked through the door, the reception and service we received was faultless - friendly and unobtrusive, as was the ambience and decor. We chose a standard and a seafood tasting menu. As well as the six courses on the menu, there were several little surprises between courses which made for a well balanced dinner. All the... More

Had a wonderful long lunch with a friend last week. Interesting set menu with exquisite extras. Staff were great, not overbearing and happy to serve just a couple of glasses of wine. Will be back for dinner!

We had been twice before but this was the first opportunity to try the set lunch menu. The choice was limited as was expected but not an issue. The food , ambiance, service was first class, we also took the wine pairings that were very well matched. The taste, presentation and quality of the food was some of the best... More

Fantastic service and excellent food, even with gluten-free and dairy-free requirements. Staff were hugely attentive and very friendly, and I received a congratulatory card from Martin Wishart as I was celebrating my graduation. Decor is simple but it didn't matter as the dining experience was so good. Although expensive, it was worth every penny! Thank you.

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 wines which were nicely introduced by the... More
