Summary

“An amazing experience”: individualistic chef Paul Kitching serves some “exquisite” (“perhaps a tad too complicated?”) cuisine and a notable wine selection, according to fans of his “cosy” Georgian townhouse, where he celebrates his tenth anniversary in 2019. The enigmatic title refers to the number of options on each of the five courses of his signature changing menu.

Summary

“An exceptional use of a variety of ingredients without overloading dishes” creates food that’s “divine but not heavy” at Paul Kitching’s offbeat but comfortable and “secluded” Georgian townhouse, where “attentive but relaxed and friendly service” adds to the experience.

Summary

If it wasn’t all a bit “wacky” it wouldn’t be a Paul Kitching restaurant. With “really weird decor (think Michelin handbook meets a mid-90s computer game!)”, and food that provides “odd (sometimes inspired) combinations of flavours and ingredients”, this Georgian townhouse is certainly a “quirky” venue; “there’s a lot of fun here, however, including service which is far from stuffy” – even if at root this is a “textbook fine dining experience”. “Expect to take a lovely long time over your meal – an amazing collection of different tastes.”

Summary

“Witty, subversive, delicious, surprising, serious....” – Paul Kitching’s cuisine is certainly anything but predictable, and especially “for something different” the open kitchen at his “romantic” Calton Hill townhouse is just the job for an “unusual” culinary experience that fans find nothing short of “sublime”.
