Independent restaurant guide, SquareMeal.,has announced the best restaurants that the UK has to offer and 11 are in Scotland.
SquareMeal’s UK Top 100 is the only list of its kind to exclude London’s restaurants - allowing the wider UK’s dining scene to truly shine. Here we take a look at the Scottish restaurants that were named in the UK top 100 for 2023.

Another one for Edinburgh, this cosy neighbourhood spot comes in at 78 where its ‘meticulously sourced ingredients from local farmers, growers and fishermen’ are mentioned by SquareMeal. Photo: The Palmerston
Finally at 87 is Edinburgh's Fhior, which opened in 2018. Run by husband and wife team Scott and Laura Smith, it’s a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike and, according to SquareMeal ‘promises local produce on the menu along with small-batch natural wines.’ Photo: Contributed
