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

The food, as you would expect from Martin Wishart, was very good. That said, it was something else that irritated me. We had booked online for lunch at £28.50 a head. On arrival, the menu said £32. I queried it and was told: "Martin put the price up a couple of days ago." Should he have honoured the original price... More

Nice food nice location nice restaurant nice service. We had the tasting menu and fortunately because of food sensitivities etc the restaurant was able to make various changes to our menu. Stand out dish was the scallops which were wonderful and the baguette bread to begin. The desserts were also wonderful. Staff were professional and pleasant but did seem to... More

This restaurant offers fantastic food and good options. My partner and I chose to have different tasting menu's, i had the traditional one, she had the fish and shellfish (not allowed by many restaurants), both of which were exceptional. There was one course that was very tasty but not what I expected. I commented to the waiter and the response... More

I know there have been some negative reviews regarding the service at Martin Wishart's but our experience was of exceptional food and service! From our arrival the team were very welcoming and helpful with questions we had regarding the menus. This fantastic service continued throughout the evening. All the food we tried from the fish tasting menu and the A... More

This is the fifth time we have dined here. This time, we came all the way from North Notts just for the day so we could have lunch here. We weren't disappointed. This is our favourite restaurant of all time. Tasting menu and wine pairings were the best yet and we love the refurb. See you next time because there... More

Lovely evening at Martin Wishart where we sampled the Autumn Tasting menu. Delicious. Highlights were the scallops, pork cheeks and of course, the salted caramel petit fours to finish. Great value.

We visited Martin Wishart's beautiful restaurant the evening before our youngest daughter's graduation. It was her and a friend's first time dining at a Michelin star restaurant. We couldn't have felt more welcome. The four of us opted for the 6 course taster menu, 2 classic, 1 fish and 1 vegetarian option with gluten free requirement. They adapted this menu... More

Martin Wishart is a unique restaurant in Scotland. Simply the best. Better than Midsummer House in Cambridge. Better than Murano and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London. Better than Andrew Fairlie in Gleneagles. A friend and I had the autumn tasting menu lunch today. What a bargain. Exquisite cooking. Every bite was perfectly balanced. Rich, sweet, succulently tasty. Not too heavy.... More
