Top five Michelin-starred restaurants in Edinburgh
The Kitchin, Martin Wishart, The Plumed Horse, Number One and 21212
1: The Kitchin
The menu here reflects chef/owner Tom Kitchin's passion for locally-sourced Scottish produce with French interpretations. One of Edinburgh's A-list restaurants, it won its accolade just six months after opening in the summer of 2006
2: Restaurant Martin Wishart
Martin Wishart's eponymous venue remains a mecca for Edinburgh's high earners and food connoisseurs. Dishes are divine and the service second to none.
3: Plumed Horse (CLOSED)
Opened in 2006, the Plumed Horse has demanded – and garnered – a lot of attention from food critics and lovers of eating out.
4: Number One
If you're looking for a place for a romantic meal and some seriously imaginative cuisine, head for Number One, where the dining room and the food are both opulent.
With interior design as interesting as the food itself, 21212 may be a relative newcomer to the Edinburgh Michelin scene, but is fast becoming an established player on the gourmet track.
