Suggestions - Edinburgh Restaurants

Will be heading to Edinburgh next week. Restaurant suggestions appreciated. Would like to splurge one night (Martin Wishart's is closed!) and eat well the other 5 nights.
Am not sure about haggis.....but beef, seafood, and more exotic foods are fine. Thanks!

Ok, I must admit that this does not answer your question, but brought a smile anyway. Your question put me in mind of a trip to Edinburgh some years ago when I asked the same question. As a consequence I found myself seated in an Indian restaurant overseen by a vocal and cantankerous middle-aged restauranteur. In addition, he had apparenlt that day received a letter that vexed him as he periodically re-read it, slapped it with his other hand, turned toward the kitchen and yelled at any and all who were present. Anyway, towards the end of my meal a group of 6 very tall, blonde, and germanic tourists also arrived and were seated near me, one of whom had obviously been appointed table spokesman. They individually consulted their menus, talked among themselves and finally the spokesman signaled to the already peevish owner. He approached, scowl on face and listened as the tourist pointed at an item and politely asked vass ees dass? The restauranteur glanced, and replied: 'Hot.' Blank stares, scribbling, another point and vass ees...? "Hot, hot." A repeat point and stare "Hot, hot, very very hot." Nodding all round - and excited, animated conversations as the table was served 1 order each of Hot, Hot hot, and Hot, hot very very hot. To this day I cannot eat in an Indian restaurant without wishing I was well enough educated to understand the German conversation I was eavesdropping on in the shadow of Edinburgh castle.

Try Indian food.
