Top five Michelin-starred restaurants in Edinburgh

Food from The Kitchin

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.

5: 21212
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.
