Description: "toptable Dining Awards 2007 - Runner-up: Best Ambience category

The award-winning Martin Wishart restaurant in Edinburgh 's port of Leith is a stunning fine dining experience not to be missed. The relaxed cream and mocha colour scheme, fresh flowers and flawless service provide the perfect backdrop for the exquisite food. Wishart – who has worked with super-chefs such as Marc Meneau, Albert Roux and Marco Pierre White during his high-profile career – has a dedicated team of eight chefs working overtime to create the restaurant's Michelin-starred modern Scottish menu. We love the lobster and smoked haddock souffle with soubise spinach; the partridge and foie gras with red cabbage and apple sauce; and the roast loin and civet of hare with apple, beetroot, salsafi and black pudding sauce.

My partner and I chose to eat here following our civil partnership ceremony as we wanted a memorable venue for our wedding breakfast! We were given a table by the window as requested and chose the taster menu with accompanying wines. We given a number of amuse bouche dishes in advance of our 6 course arriving which they did in a leisurely manner accompanied by an explanation of each wine by the knowledgable sommelier. The meal was a treat for the palate and senses and proved a good choice though slightly larger portions for some dishes would not have been rejected! Overall we will return to try the set menu that other guests were tucking into and which looked like excellent value for money.
