Restaurant Martin Wishart

54 The Shore, Edinburgh, EH6 6RA

You know that moment at the theatre when the lights go down, just before the curtain goes up? The bit when the audience holds its collective breath? That’s what an encounter with Martin Wishart’s tasting menu is like. You scan the menu before you eat…

The Kitchin

78 Commercial Quay, Edinburgh, EH6 6LX

Treasure maps tend to be jealously guarded, prised from cold, dead hands or relinquished reluctantly at gunpoint. The Kitchin, however, does things differently, each diner presented with a wee scroll depicting Scotland in relief, X marking the spots…

Plumed Horse

50–54 Henderson Street, Edinburgh, EH6 6DE

To begin at the end – and a mighty fine end indeed, distinguished by desserts as delightful on the eye as the spoon. A vibrant gingerbread mousse contrasts with sweet, crunchy ‘rocks’ of honeycomb, a thing of true beauty. Then nougat parfait, delicately…

21212

3 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh, EH7 5AB

Paul Kitching has been cooking his own sweet way since his Michelin-starred fine-diner opened five years ago. It starts with a menu beating a distinctive 2-1-2-1-2 rhythm of choices at each course. The two ‘ones’ are soup and cheese courses, punctuating…

L'Escargot Bleu

56 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3SA

L’escargot Bleu is the kind of place that compels you to burst into your dimly remembered and slightly embarrassing school French. It’s just … so French. In fact, it’s everything you'd expect from a French bistro, except (whisper it) with better…

Café Tabou

4 St John's Place, Perth, PH1 5SZ

Marek and Magda Michalak have run Café Tabou since 2007, working to put as French a stamp as they can on the décor, the food and the wine list. Multiple menus serve throughout the day, from a breakfast loyal to croissants and croque monsieur to regular…

Brian Maule at Chardon d'Or

176 West Regent Street, Glasgow, G2 4RL

Glasgow doesn’t currently have a Michelin-starred restaurant, but le Chardon d’Or delivers an experience that’s pretty close. Chef Brian Maule spent eleven years with Michel Roux Jr at Le Gavroche, and his experience shows in elegant, precisely…

Cote du Nord

The School House, 2 Kirtomy, Nr. Bettyhill, Highland, KW14 7TB

Nestled between mountains and the rugged windswept north coast in a sparsely populated landscape might seem a surprising place to find a French-influenced restaurant, but with incredible Highland produce right on the doorstep, and only eight seats…

Galvin Brasserie de Luxe

Caledonian Hotel, Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2AB

Galvin Brasserie de Luxe is a bit un-Edinburgh. But in a good way. Although in the city’s West End, the street outside could easily be mistaken for London, while inside interprets chic Gallic style. As would be expected in such five-star surroundings…

Café Marlayne

13 Antigua Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3NH

Don’t come here to snap pictures of your grub before you scoff it. Not that what’s on your plate is unappetising, or entirely uneasy on the eye. Rather, this is more relaxed French-influenced café than starched-linen restaurant. It’s an all-day affair.

Aizle

107-109 St Leonard's Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9QY

When Aizle arrived in April 2014, a lot had to be explained carefully. Aizle rhymes with hazel, we were advised, and the word itself was Scots for 'spark'. A 30-year-old Scottish chef, Stuart Ralston, and his American partner Krystal Goff, an innovative…

Cellar Gascon

59 West Smithfield, London, EC1A 9DS

Cellar Gascon is the wine bar of Michelin-starred French restaurant Club Gascon. It is a great option for those who wish to sample the Pascal Aussignac's commendably authentic French cuisine in a relaxed and laid-back environment. Prices are reasonable…
