A well-established restaurant in Edinburgh since 2005, family-run Hewat's seamlessly blends Scottish produce and elegant French cooking techniques. In the striking dining room, glittering chandeliers and ruby-red furnishings are swirled throughout, while a plush, baroque-style private area can be cordoned off with thick drapes. Speciality dishes include Aberdeen Angus beef, and fresh Scottish seafood.
