Food and drink
From nature to plate is Tom Kitchin's ethos, meaning you get the absolute best Scottish seasonal produce. I keep going on about his Michelin star but you just know this is going to be excellent; expect Scottish with a French influence and be prepared to step out of the box, as he can push the boundaries sometimes. A good example would be his famous pig's head and langoustine, admit it, this isn't something you have every day, or possibly ever imagined existed. Well it does and it's wonderful.
Daily seasonal alternatives to the menu are on offer depending on the produce available. It could be game, it could be shellfish...whatever Tom decides on the day. Expect delights like razor clams from Arisaig, hand-dived scallops from Orkney and that pig’s head and langoustine.
Muted decor and dark colours with flattering lighting -yes! - and a sense of intimacy. There is also a glass panel which allows you to see into the kitchen and get a sense of the magic being perfomed in there.
Michelin service - you know the deal: discreet, efficient and generally faultless.
Commercial Quay, right opposite the Scottish Executive.
There's a three course set lunch for £24.50 - you can’t beat that! The surprise tasting menu includes one amuse bouche, pre-starter, starter, middle course, fish course, meat course and dessert (cheese supplement £10) followed by coffee/tea with petit fours - £65.00.
Going your own sweet way? Expect main courses at around the £30 mark, which is why that lunch deal is really great value.
