    First impressions

    What a hidden gem of a restaurant! I had the Cullen skink to start and my wife had squid, we've had better but they were fine. The main course of seafood which we both had was stunning. Looking forward to going back for the mid were menu.

Scottish fine dining in Southside of Edinburgh

Using seasonal Scottish ingredients, Hewat’s has been a dining hotspot in Edinburgh’s Southside since 2004. A family-run business, Hewat’s offers a pre-theatre and mid week menu alongside the a la carte menu.

Seasonal menus

There is a proud Scottish slant to many of the dishes offered at Hewat’s Restaurant. The menus change with the seasons but typical among the starters might be the Stornoway black pudding with haggis risotto and crispy pancetta or the Cullen skink with mussels. More exotic influences are evident in choices like the sautéed tiger prawns with a sweet chilli sauce or the free range chicken breast with a Thai green curry.

Veggie choices include dishes like the wild mushroom, red onion and baby leek tartlet with brie, charred Mediterranean vegetables and rocket salad. Diners with more carnivorous tastes will prefer the roast tenderloin of boar with braised pork belly, apple compote, crackling, pulled pork and black pudding mash served with Savoy cabbage and chorizo. Pride of place goes to beef dishes like the charred Sirloin of Aberdeen Angus beef with a peppercorn sauce, spring onion and thyme potato cake and fine beans.
