When you enter Michelin Star chef Martin Wishart’s restaurant at Cameron House you may feel aggrieved that there are few views of the bonny, bonny banks. But, in fact, the food is far prettier. A meal here is one to be savoured. From the tasting menu at £175 to the unbelievably good value lunch at £25 for three courses, there will be something that will stay with you long after the day is over. Beetroot macarons with horseradish are inspired, while the blood orange cheesecake made with organic Connage Crowdie is exquisite. Staff are keen to tell you as much as you wish to know – where the meat was sourced, how the grapes were grown, or even the translation of the French cheese names. Although Wishart is not always on the premises his top notch team, under the guidance of manager Miguel Rivero, will never let the experience be anything short of magical. Do ask about the show-stoppers on the menu – there is always a flambé in there somewhere and diners will thank you for the spectacle.
