This popular Royal Mile restaurant has been serving consistently good food since opening in 2007. The exciting menu offers unusual twists on seasonal Scottish produce such as lobster thermidor as a crème brûlée with a Bloody Mary sorbet to balance the richness. Wild Scottish deer, served pink, has a real depth of flavour and comes with a tasty venison haggis. Foraged leaves and herbs, many found within the city, are a real passion of chef Paul Wedgwood and start to appear in the dishes during the warmer months. And it’s good to know that the beautifully presented seabass and clams are sustainably sourced, as is all the seafood.
