A lovely, friendly restaurant in Helensburgh. Approximately 50 minutes from Glasgow by train. Owner is Will Smith, ex Arbutus, Wild Honey. Charming man,

Had two exquisite meals here. One to put on the trail with Inver.




#1394141 Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond

Posted by AnnyBaxter on 28 October 2016 - 05:26 AM

A return in 2008 to Cameron House, one of his training gaffes (he was in his 20s), 'Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond' is a one Michelin starred restaurant. He has his first Michelin starred ressie at 'Restaurant Martin' Wishart in Leith, Edinburgh opened in 1999.  We ate here a while back and loved it.

 

He also runs the Honours, a more casual, brasserie-style restaurant which opened in Edinburgh in 2011. A sister restaurant in Glasgow followed in 2014.

 

We treated ourselves to the 6 course tasting menu last night at Cameron House.  They also do 8 course tasting and vegetarian tasting menus.  All local produce. Not a wrong note with any of it.
