Booked a stay in Leith to complete our Edinburgh Michelin experience (done the city centre ones over the past few years). The Kitchin is definitely the best if you want excellent food and wine in a trendy, unstuffy environment with friendly, but professional service. Can't fault it, and only wish we'd saved this for the last night, as unfortunately Mr... More

We visited the Kitchin after receiving a gift voucher from my mum for my birthday. First if all the service was flawless, staff were so kind and ensured we had everything we needed throughout our meal. The food was pretty exceptional, we both had scallops to start which were just perfect. We also received a map of Scotland which showed... More

I visited the Kitchin with my foodie brother and we enjoyed a fabulous meal from their 3 course a la carte menu. Steep at £100+ per person, with wine and coffee, but worth it. The food was marvellous. The service was simply first class.....and we saw the great man working in the kitchen. The carrot amuse bouche was incredible: words... More

Good to be back and meet Tom Kichin again. He welcome guests in the bar before dinner. Looking through the long window to the kitchen is like a tropical fish tank flurry of action! Restaurant Manager and Sommelier are French and were most friendly and helpful over our "Chef's Seasonal Tasting menu" which included matched wines. Most enjoyed were, Langoustine... More

Celebratory meal following daughter's graduation. Expected it to be wonderful but far exceeded expectations. The food was simply wonderful... out of this world. The staff and the service were faultless and oh those extras, the pre-dessert was sublime. Well worth the price... am already saving up for a return visit when next go to Edinburgh

An excellent lunch at The Kitchin restaurant in Leith. Flavours all round were really deep and vibrant; with a good choice for all on the menu. A good beer selection accompanies a wide selection of cocktails and wines. We enjoyed the set lunch menu which had three good choices for each course; and some cheese from the trolley! There's a...

My wife and I went for our first ever visit to Tom Kitchin in February this year. We have previously dined at Martin Wisharts restaurants in Edinburgh and Loch Lomond as well as a number of Michelin starred restaurants in Scandinavia. The welcome from the staff and the attentive service from start to finish was fantastic. We chose two different... More

Perennial debate between Edinburgh foodies we know is what is your favourite restaurant? I'm a wisharts fan as it's always been a brilliant experience. I've been to the kitchin five times now and it is just not as good. The new look is ok but it feels like it's now too big with less attentive staff and multiple servers. Fifth... More
