Called Tamburrini & Wishart the new restaurant will launch on 1 August and will offer ‘a contemporary and innovative dining experience inspired by Scotland’s natural larder’. It will serve a five-course tasting menu that will change every two weeks as well as a three-course lunch menu that will feature dishes such as red wine braised ox cheeks; crab and lemongrass velouté; and Pink Lady tart tatin for two.
The chefs have worked together for more than 20 years at Michelin-starred Restaurant Martin Wishart in Leith and at The Honours, which closed in 2020 because of the pandemic. The move marks a return to Cameron House Hotel for Tamburrini who worked at the hotel early on in his career.
“It’s fantastic to be announcing some good news after the trials and tests of the pandemic and I’m excited to be returning to the iconic Cameron House Resort,” says Wishart.
“This is an exciting opportunity to bring an elevated offering to the hotel’s collection of restaurants. The venue itself will be stylish with a great atmosphere, where guests know they will get contemporary, flavour-led cuisine. Paul and I are both incredibly passionate about our love of food and designing menus using the very best of seasonal produce. It’s an exciting period for us, the resort, and returning guests.”
The restaurant launch coincides with the reopening of the 140-bedroom at the start of August.
“Cameron House Resort is a very special place. I worked there in the early stages of my career and loved every minute of it, so to now be leading a new fine dining offering in tandem with Martin Wishart is an absolute honour,” says Tamburrini.
“We have collaborated successfully in the past and we’re confident this venture at Cameron House will be no different. We have the same vision on food and attention to detail, so it just works, and this is an amazing opportunity for us to be working together again at Scotland’s number one resort.
Reservations will be open for Tamburrini & Wishart from 1 June.
