This restaurant has just jumped to 1st place in our favourite places to eat while in Edinburgh, not really sure where to start. Leith is a great up and coming area with nice cocktail bars, fish restaurants and a couple of Michelin star restaurants, not bad! We opted for Restaurant Martin Wishart and we were not disappointed! The hardest choice... More

As soon as we were approaching the restaurant somebody was at the door to open it & welcome us coats off & taken straight to our table to be met by more staff who settled us in at our table. Whilst looking over the menus we both had a... More

My husband and I were delighted to enjoy another great night at Restaurant Martin Wishart recently. As always, front of house managed to strike that perfect balance between swift, knowledgable service and warm Scottish hospitality. Our booking was for 18:30 and we were advised at the time of booking that we would have to return the table by 21:00. This... More

We've been here a few times and will return. Dinner was good and like many others we agree that the little things like the thoughtful and delicious amuse bouches and lovely bread and petits fours lift the experience considerably. The wine was spot on as always. Service was professional and discreet but a tad detached; a bit "corporate" and we... More

The food, service, and staff made this a most memorable meal - one of the best I have had. They made accommodation on the tasting menu to fit my taste, and as I was a solo diner, made an effort to chat when a moment permitted. Pricey, but not stratospheric - worth every penny!!

Came here for lunch which is a bargain price and you can immediately see why this place has had a Michelin Star for so long. The food is fantastic from the amuse bouche through to pudding it was all perfectly designed and cooked. If anything the perfection of décor food and service leant towards a type of sterility - it...

Booked the 6 course tasting menu with accompanying wines to celebrate my husband's 40th. Food, wine and service wine was truly outstanding. Especially our Sommelier who to non-educated wine drinkers patiently explained each wine and it's relationship to each of our courses.
