Set up by Michelin-starred chef Martin Wishart in 2011, The Honours is an elegant and modern French restaurant in Edinburgh. Its brasserie-style menu has been created by Martin Wishart and executive chef Rikki Preston, and incorporates seasonal, Scottish ingredients.

Signature chateaubriand and roast rib of beef are grilled for 2 to share, with the former served with duck-fat chips, and the latter drizzled in Szechuan sauce and served with pommes cocottes and confit mushrooms. French classics such as confit duck a l’orange and chicken fricassee feature in traditional mains, while there’s a host of freshly-caught Scottish fish seafood, which includes a glorious line-caught halibut with glazed pig trotters and a delicate crab cappuccino.

There’s also hand-rolled pasta on The Honours menu, while the wine list is a sophisticated 17-page selection of French and New World wines and signature cocktails. The interior of the Honours restaurant is laid out in an elegant, formal brasserie style.

On North Castle Street, The Honours looks out over Queen Street Gardens, and is less than a mile from Edinburgh Station.

    Lunch with friends in a lovely restaurant. The restaurant appeared fairly quiet for a Saturday but in saying this the atmosphere was welcoming and efficient. The food as always was incredible and I am informed by my friend Bill his dry martini was exceptional and he has tasted many!! My only criticism was that our waitress started clearing some of our dishes away before we finished eating. It was very discreet but this is a pet hate of mine. This did not detract from the overall amazing lunch we had. we will be back.

    The restaurant is a top end brasserie, not the excellent fine dining experience to be had at restaurant Martin Wishart in Leith. The menu is a bit top heavy on beef dishes but the choices were acceptable. The staff are superb. The food was excellent and the portion sizes about right but Edinburgh is full of places offering similar quality at slightly lower prices. Towards the end of lunch, around 2.30, I think the heating went off and the place cooled down quite fast. We were ready to leave so, not a problem but on a very cold day, it was noticeable.

    The food was fantastic, the only fault l would say is that there wasn't enough time in between courses.

    It was a fantastic lunch - we ate from the fixed price menu which offered a tasty, varied & seasonal choice. Our sprizers were perfect & the service friendly, discrete but efficient! Definitely go again.
