Do a review on this thread after you've been - friends say the service is top notch there. Really want to go but we're belt tightening hugely so won't be splurging any time soon, sadly. Our last anniversary was a Vietnamese restaurant for about a tenth of the price! But still nicer than the Witchery.......

I'm wondering about going to Martin Wishart.
I've been to his restaurant at Cameron House, albeit a long time ago and the service was horribly snooty.
My friend and I who went to The Kitchin ten times, now won't go back,but we'd like somewhere similar but definitely not snooty!

My top choices:
Lots of the others are fine but perhaps not as special as you are looking for. Maki & ramen is brilliant - but not fine dining. Definitely not the Witchery. Food is overpriced. Bonnie and Wild or the Pitt for an informal second night.

Had another lovely meal at Wedgwood.
Felt the same. Read the trip advisor reviews after and it seems they can be a bit rude on occasion 🤣🤣🤣 I think anyone going should go with an open mind.

Rhubarb at Prestonfield is much better (although a little way out of town).
We had a fabulous special meal there last summer. Really good service - quite posh (escorted to your table by blokes in kilts) but not at all snooty. I had the most amazing featherblade of beef.

Another vote for Martin Wishart in Leith
DH was part of a group performing at the Fringe s few years running. I helped with leaflets and general moral support in return to a visit to Martin Wishart. Never had a disappointing meal there, either in spite of the build up each year.
