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.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Edinburgh, and I come here often especially for business dinners with guests that visit University of Edinburgh. The food is excellent, very tasty and the presentation is great. The restaurant is very chic, and has a feeling of authentic Scottish restaurant. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient. We've been here the other day with our 1 year old boy, and the waitress who helped us was really kind to him. Would recommend without reserve.

    Excellent food and friendly, welcoming service, as always, from Hewat's. Their 'early bird' menu offers incredibly good value with a fair choice of starters and mains and we were not disappointed by our choices. They also serve tasty bread and butter to nibble on and a carafe of iced tap water is provided without having to be requested. This restaurant continues to be a real gem.
