Four of us dined here for a special reunion and we couldn't fault any aspect of our evening, except the weather outside! The staff were helpful, efficient and very knowledgeable about the various dishes. It was the most interesting menu I have seen for some time. I particularly enjoyed the Razor Clam starter which was beautifully presented and full of... More

Great food (had tasting menu), great room and even better service. Truly memorable. Not cheap, but worth it. Go there. Now.

Went to the kitchen for the 3 course set menu and from start to finish we were spoilt by the servers and the chefs!! On arrival we had an assortment of crackers and dips, you wouldn't believe the flavours packed into these!! The following starter of the potato risotto was not something I had had before but I can assure... More

From the moment we walked through the door on a bracing January night we knew we were in a good place, a warm place where you feel relaxed and happy. Welcome to The Kitchin...an experience we will remember with great affection for a very long time. Indeed, to cut corners, let us get down to the nitty, gritty and enthuse...... More

Took my partner as a surprise to the restaurant. The food was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff attentive. We did one of the tasting menus, however I wanted to try razor clams, so one of the dishes was changed to accommodate my wish. Sitting looking at the menus my partner looked up to be personally greeted and spoken... More

A couple of stand out dishes here for me, the halibut dish and the best hare dish I've ever eaten. Perfect portion size for lunch and a cracking wine pairing. The only reason I'm not giving it 5☆ is my wife's vegetarian menu. It was very nice but nothing outstanding. She was certainly glad she ordered the fish as the... More

I had not been since the restaurant had been done up and it looks stunning! Lovely looking and tasting food as always and it was great to see a well thought out vegetarian tasting menu.

To have the best experience of this renowned Gastronomic destination in Edinburgh, you cannot be in a hurry. Although we live part of the year in France, we always try to make a point of dining at The Kitchin whenever we are in Edinburgh. We've been going there ever since it opened and always look forward to our next visit.... More

We recently moved to Edinburgh and decided to visit The Kitchin after hearing so much about chef Kitchin in recent years. The restaurant is impeccably decorated, with some Scandinavian influences and impeccable taste in the choice of materials and colours. The atmosphere is "just right", a modern smart and classy, but yet warm and not stuffy at all. We had... More
