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.

    We were so excited to try all your amazing foods. My partner and I are both in the food and wine industry so we know when we see a good menu. Also, to have it be open so late because we have travelled so far, made it the perfect option to eat. However, we were a bit disappointed to see after we made a booking, to arrive at the restaurant 15mins early so we could have a quick drink, that the place was not even open. Even though it specifies on the chalk board out the front "open Monday" and we'd booked our time online. Perhaps it was a quite night, I don't know? Next time I will phone if we ever choose to eat here again. 5 stars for perceived experience and 0 stars for the actual experience, well, lack there of.

    This restaurant is conveniently located. It looked small at first then I released there was more to it! Inside was warm and welcoming and lovely decor.
    The food was very good with big portions, Only thing that put me off was the set menu of a 2 course or 3 course meal.

    The Pre-Theatre menu was just perfect for the show, and there was a great selection of wines by the glass. Service was outstanding. It was so good we will be returning soon to do justice to the full menu and wine list.
