SquareMeal Review of Le Cafe St Honore

bronze award


A long-standing fixture on the Edinburgh scene, Café St Honore has a classic fin de siècle look and could have come straight from a canvas by Manet or Renoir. The cooking is in the hands of Neil Forbes – Scottish Chef of the Year 2011 – who used to be at Edinburgh’s late lamented Atrium restaurant. Ingredients are carefully sourced and the kitchen delivers sound renditions of classic dishes, including lunchtime favourites such as lamb’s sweetbreads in breadcrumbs with tartare sauce, Cornish sardines with crushed organic potatoes, basil oil, tomatoes and capers, and crème brûlée for dessert. The dinner menu adds a few more elaborate options and there’s also a short list of Café Classics – think free-range ham hock terrine with piccalilli, fish pie, Irish stew and desserts including crème fraîche mousse with English gooseberry compote. Decent French wines, with a good choice by the glass (from £5.10).
