Wonderful fine-dining, expertly prepared and presented. Only qualms are that it is a very expensive treat and is, perhaps, a little too formal.

No but it is very relaxed and you can enjoy an aperitif at your table and stay the whole night long if you want to.
Gluten free option?

"<b>toptable Dining Awards 2007 - Runner-up: Best Ambience category</b><BR><BR>

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.
