If you are looking for serious fare from some of the best chefs in the country, the gourmet restaurants in Edinburgh have got you covered. As well as being the capital, it is also the Michelin capital in Scotland as well, with four gourmet restaurants in Edinburgh boasting Michelin stars and another four with Bib Gourmand ratings. That's quite a feat for a relatively small city and it is rightly making the capital a top foodie destination. While they share the highest standards of cooking, the gourmet restaurants of Edinburgh also offer a diversity of styles that will surprise and delight you.
Local ingredients play a big part on the menus of Edinburgh's gourmet restaurants. You can expect to enjoy some of the best Scottish seafood, freshly caught and expertly prepared. Scottish meat and game are also renowned as some of the best in the world and they are given the treatment they deserve by these expert chefs. You can also expect some surprises, a little trickery and even some humour in the presentation of the dishes, all adding up to a fine dining experience you won't forget.
