Experienced head chef Richard Hewat is behind the Scottish and French inspired cuisine at Hewat’s Restaurant in Edinburgh. With Aberdeen Angus steaks and fresh Scottish seafood, a decadent menu is served in the distinctive, chandelier-lit dining room, with the luxurious private area ideal for special occasions.

Full of skilfully crafted dishes, the Hewat’s menu offers starters of pan-fried black pudding on haggis risotto and king scallops with smoked salmon. Tempting main courses deliver roast tenderloin of boar with morel mushroom sauce, and mackerel and clams with spinach and crab mash.

Wickedly indulgent desserts at Hewat’s Restaurant include rhubarb crème brulee with shortbread, or caramelised lemon tart with raspberries and crème fraiche. The gourmet cheese board features Scottish specialities like Isle of Mull cheddar, served with homemade oatcakes.

A large selection of Chilean and South African wines join classic Europeans, with Hewat’s also offering an impressive choice of whiskies and liqueurs. Hewat’s Restaurant is around 8 minutes’ drive from Edinburgh city centre.

    Warm and inviting reception and restaurant is quaint but a nice size.
    All staff attentive and friendly :)
    My favourite dish was the chilli prawns to start. The sauce was beautiful

    Myself and two friends went to Hewats for Christmas lunch in the week running up to Christmas. We were surprised at how quiet it was, just ourselves and two other diners, but perhaps the big crowds had been in the previous week. We had three generous courses and coffee for £21, and I was pretty full after it (I managed to polish it all off - just). We shared a bottle of the cheapest red, and with a generous tip it came to £30 each, which we all thought was great value, especially given he quality of the food.

    How many work Christmas lunches have I been to where they squash in hordes of people, so tight you can hardly eat your dinner, and the food is poor quality - too many. If that has been your experience too, come here instead!
