Martin Wishart opened his eponymous restaurant in Edinburgh’s historic Port of Leith with his wife Cecile in February 1999. Now, celebrating 14 years of continued growth, the doors that opened with just four staff now play host to a kitchen, front-of-house and management team of over 25.
Martin directs this team with one member of staff for every two guests, and holds true to the original mission to bring the very best traditional and modern French cuisine to Edinburgh, using the finest and freshest local ingredients. Martin gave Edinburgh its first Michelin Star in 2001 and this has been confirmed every year since.
Martin trained under renowned chefs including Albert Roux, Michel Roux Jr, Marco Pierre White, Nick Nairn and John Burton-Race.
Martin is an entrepreneur with a passion for cooking. He keeps on top of his profession by forming bonds with other internationally acclaimed restaurants. His brilliant career has taken him around the world to Australia, the USA, Singapore and across Europe.
In recent years, Martin has expanded his business in recent years, with the opening of his Cook School in December 2007, his second Michelin star Restaurant, Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond at Cameron House Hotel, in November 2008 and his latest addition The Honours, a contemporary brasserie in the heart of Edinburgh city centre, that opened July 2011.
