Award-winning newcomer to the Edinburgh fine dining scene, Le Roi Fou is an intimate restaurant and bar, which showcases inventive French, Swiss & Scottish dishes, presented beautifully.

Chef patron Jérôme Henry spent 20 years at the sharp end of fine dining and brings every inch of that experience to Le Roi Fou. Execution is exemplary, ingredients are sourced with care and the carefully curated wine list reads like a dream. Jérôme is the embodiment of the chef-patron, working at the stove, popping up behind the bar and (if you're really lucky) flying the flag for his native Switzerland by explaining the mostly Swiss cheeses on the well-stocked trolley.

Starters might include grilled Galician octopus with watermelon and aged sherry vinegar and hand-cut beef fillet steak tartare, followed by a main dish such as grilled Scottish halibut with wild girolle and Swiss chard, and classic favourites such as seared new season lamb rack with mint-infused sauce. There are also continuously updated chef's tasting menus. Puddings include comforting classics like poached rhubarb and pistachio crumble with Borders crème fraîche ice cream, while the wine list boasts respected or unusual vintages. The boutique-style interior includes dining at the bar, a small upstairs dining room room perfect for romantic meals, and a downstairs larger dining room.

Le Roi Fou is centrally placed, only 10 minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station, in the fashionable New Town area of the city. Le Roi Fou can organise private function up to 20 guests.
