Foie, wonderful Ollo Rosso jelly, foie itself could have taken a touch more seasoning Partridge raviole, unquestionably Michelin, a jewel...More

The restaurant provides a pleasant but not very remarkable atmosphere with the tables a little too close together. The service is excellent as one would expect. We went for lunch and, like most people there ,went for the well priced set lunch which was enjoyable...More

This is our second visit here after visiting Edinburgh 2 years ago. We had an exquisite meal here back then and this second visit was just as marvelous. First class service, lovely surroundings and unbelievably wonderful food. A real privilege to eat here.

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.

Description
Martin Wishart, an Edinburgh-born chef, has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s most highly respected chefs. Trained under such renowned chefs as Albert Roux, Michel Roux Jr, Marco Pierre White and John Burton-Race, taking a little bit of inspiration from each mentor over the time he worked with them and distilling it to create his own culinary magic. Amongst some of the many attributes they imparted to him over the years of working together, it was the importance of discipline in the kitchen, a passion for food and a deep understanding of classic French cooking techniques that have continued to be the backbone of his style. Whilst never having planned to become a chef, he started working in kitchens from the age of fifteen, fell in love with the industry and now has more than thirty years’ experience in the business. He is now an established and multi-awarded chef and restaurateur.
