I decided to dine at Wedgwood after reading numerous great reviews about it on TripAdvisor.
As it was off-peak season during my trip to Edinburgh last month, the restaurant wasn't at it's full capacity on a Friday afternoon though I did notice that many people made reservation to dine here.
Prior to my three-course set lunch, I enjoyed the oven baked ciabatta with smoked garlic and herb oil (I believe there was an additional charge for the ciabatta).
As mentioned by other reviewers, the three-course set lunch was a steal at only GBP16.
I opted for the following items:
- Crab and shrimp risotto, parmesan tuile
- Venison meatballs, apple and coriander couscous, yoghurt
- Hazelnut and blue cheese cake, spiced poached pear
Amongst the three items, I thought the starter was excellent and the dessert was interesting.
I'm not a blue cheese fan... but the hazelnut and spiced poached pear was a nice combination with the blue cheese and so I was glad that I opted for an item that I would usually avoid.
The service was great and I was even given recommendation on other restaurants to dine when they found out that I was just visiting Edinburgh for 2 days.
