I will keep it short, it was a few years ago and I have been 3 or 4 times, even tho it is quite expensive it is worth every penny. you only get what you pay for and the knowledge of the waiters was impressive also.

We visited on a Tuesday lunch time, expecting it to be be fairly quiet and we were pleasantly surprised by how ambient it was! Without doubt the best food I have had in a very long time. The dishes were absolutely sublime. The ingredients were paired perfectly and I'm sure if I had been able to choose the wine pairing... More

What a great lunch deal they have on, food was excellent! The staff were extremely friendly and it is worth the venture outside of the old town / new town area.

First visit to Martin Wishart for a long time - will make sure the gap before the next visit is not as long. Right from the warm welcome on arrival until they organised a taxi for us on leaving the standard of the service was excellent. There are 4 options insofar as food is concerned, 3 tasting menu's and an... More

This is the first Michelin starred restaurant I have ever been to. The welcome was lovely, and we were astounded by the service. Each member of staff knew 'their stuff'. We went à la cartel which I do regret despite the food being the most interesting I have ever tasted. ( It was also delicious, but mince, needs and tattles... More

The taster menu is always the best way to eat in Martin Wisharts - and they're more than happy to swap a dish if you don't like it. The cheese trolley is irresistible - which makes eating the dessert afterwards well nigh impossible. Every course was fantastic and the staff attentiveness is perfectly unobtrusive. Hope to be back soon for... More

Fantastic in all areas. Food was sublime, service friendly and efficient, ambiance on point. Quality from start to finish. Well done for achieving what so many top establishments miss out on. The ability to make you feel relaxed in a formal environment without the stuffiness.

We were hoping for this to be the jewel in the crown to top our Michelin starred dining experiences in Edinburgh over the past years. However, although both the standard and seafood tasting menu dishes were all very good to excellent, the matching wine packages were sub-par. We look forward to experiencing wines we wouldn't otherwise try, and that is... More
