My husband and I went for dinner. He had the vegetarian tasting menu and I had the pescetarian tasting menu. Every dish was delicious. The flavours were so intense and the food was beautifully presented. At the end of the meal we opted to add the cheeseboard (not included on the tasting menus) and it was superb - the best... More

Enjoyed lunch with paired wines. Amuse Boucher was stunning, beautifully crafted and flavoursome. Freshly baked olive bread was delicious. Would have preferred more than a choice of two dishes for each course. Notwithstanding what we had was excellent. Portions were on the small side however we were offered more bread on two occasions. Sommelier was knowledgeable. Staff were attentive particularly... More

Within the constraints of a small(ish) restaurant, Restaurant Martin Wishart gave us all the elements of a great evening dining experience - attentive, warm but not over zealous staff, soothing and calm and luxurious surroundings (without being over the top and of course most importantly great food and wine. As with many other previous reviewers we opted for the tasting... More

Fine dining with bells on! As a foodie who cooks really well, I would rather eat out once in a while and make it somewhere special. This place has it all. Food exquisitely prepared, outstanding service coupled with the right ambience, makes this the place you have to visit!

Had the set lunch with the two paired wines.The food was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. The wines were well selected to compliment the food. The staff were warm, friendly and efficient without being overly attentive. I felt the portions were quite small but this didn,t detract from the quality of the meal or the overall experience....

We went here for dinner recently, and opted for the Classic Tasting and the Fish Tasting menus. The welcome was warm and the dining room was quite busy when we were seated at our reserved table. All through the meal the service was very good yet unfussy. The Amuse Bouche got us off to a good start and we enjoyed... More

The first think that strikes you as you walk into Wisharts is the warmth of the service. In some restaurants it can feel a little false but there was genuine warmth here. This continued throughout the meal and as a solo diner I really appreciated this. The amuse Bouche was a delight especially the beetroot meringue which was stunning with... More

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.
