SquareMeal Review of The Kitchin

Gold Award

“One to remember”, Tom Kitchin’s highly regarded Michelin-starred restaurant on Leith’s reenergised waterfront comes complete with a whisky snug and a temperature-controlled wine cellar – not to mention views of the kitchen from a specially designed window. Inside, there are hints of Scotland’s heritage (tartans, sheepskins, silver birch), while Kitchin’s highly distinctive cooking is still founded on seasonal produce from regional growers, producers and fishermen. ‘From nature to plate’ is the mantra, and that translates into clever, complex ideas “presented with flair and wit”:  a ‘rockpool’ of local seafood, sea vegetables, ginger and Newhaven crab consommé; boned and rolled pig’s head and langoustine tail with crispy pig’s ear salad; roasted rump ‘cap’ of Highland Wagyu beef with heritage carrots, celeriac and red wine sauce. To conclude, consider something delectably seasonal such as set Knockraich yoghurt with orange meringue and sea buckthorn consommé, but don’t ignore Kitchin’s “melt-in-the-mouth delicious” soufflés. The cosy dining room creates just the right mood, value for money is seldom in doubt, and visitors appreciate the chef’s personal touch as he greets everyone individually in the bar.

Spectacular date night - what an amazing experience
22 December 2017
One to remember - I have wanted to eat here for years and it certainly did not disappoint. My other half and I had the most amazing evening drinking fabulous Scottish g&t's, great wine, and the most sensational food. Icing on the cake was meeting Tom too. I had the venison and it was so tender and flavoursome. Although - having a sweet tooth - my favourite course would have to be dessert. You must order the souffle - it was melt in the mouth delicious. Cannot recommend it enough for a special occasion, romantic night or restaurant during a weekend away in Edinburgh.

Isn't it just wonderful when you can't find one single thing that would have made your dining experience better… That was the case when my son and I visited The Kitchin to celebrate his 40th birthday. Cocktails in the sunshine set the tone for two and a half hours of sheer delight. We chose the lunch menu of the day. Each course, exquisitely presented, was greeted with “OOhs and Ahs” when tasted (reminiscent of a scene from “When Harry Met Sally”!! We chose to have a wine package which gave us a different wine with each course. The wines were superb and served and described beautifully, adding to the whole experience. The overall level of service was was spot on and unobtrusive. While its the most expensive meal I have ever had (taking the drinks into account), it was absolutely worth every penny. A superb venue to celebrate a special occasion.
