Martin Wishart’s restaurant is, arguably, the best in Edinburgh. It’s a place for special occasions and we had a wonderful meal there in September 2008. Canapes when we arrived then an amuse bouche of fois gras brulee with apple sorbet. My starter was a Lobster souffle with smoked haddock and spinach; main was Ross-shire shin of beef with fois gras and pudding was a remarkable St Felicien with Apple cannelloni. This was cheese wrapped in apple – a really nice mixture of cheese and dessert. New Zealand Reisling and a Chilean merlot (Lapostolle). Everything was absolutely delicious, service was impeccable. Really very good.
It’s expensive (it worked out including everything at about £80 each) but it was such an experience you felt that you did get value for money.
