Having been nominated by the public, Café Tartine was named the Best Edinburgh and Lothian Restaurant for 2016 at Scotland’s Business Awards. Visit for yourself, and you’ll understand why. This charming, family-owned restaurant has a laid-back, rustic feel, a friendly atmosphere and top-notch service.
Head chef Michael Rath serves authentic French cuisine with a Scottish twist, using the finest locally sourced ingredients. Starters such as chicken liver pâté with Cumberland sauce, red onion marmalade and toasted bread, and fried duck egg with brown shrimp, capers, and beurre noisette are instant favourites. For a mouth-watering main try the pan-seared fillet of sea bass served with a basil polenta cake, tomato Provencal, sautéed spinach and chive cream. Pair this delicious dish with a bottle of the 2014 Domaine de Bonserine Condrieu – a distinctively crisp white wine with aromas of pear, peach, grape and herbs. To finish, why not plump for homemade glazed lemon tart served with fresh raspberries, or a freshly made crêpe?
Café Tartine is perfect for families and has a dog-friendly conservatory area, which can also be hired for private functions and events. Whether it’s a romantic dinner for two or a fun-filled birthday meal, Café Tartine is a beautiful setting for every occasion.
