Martin Wishart in Edinburgh has been named the top-rated restaurant in the UK for the second time in three years in Toptable's top 100 diner-rated restaurants for the year to February 2011.

The rankings are based on the ratings of 500,000 diners who have booked and dined via Toptable over the past 12 months.

Another Scottish restaurant, Piccolo Mondo in Glasgow, took second place. It was also voted top Italian restaurant and best value for money. Meanwhile London restaurant Le Gavroche, Chez Bruce and Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's took third, fourth and fifth place respectively.

Commenting on the news, Martin Wishart said: "I'm over the moon to sit at the top of the list again this year. There are so many very good restaurants in the list that it is deeply satisfying to be amongst them and to be consistently highly rated by my customers."

The popular Italian restaurant Piccolo Mondo in Glasgow, positioned second in the rankings, has also been voted the best Italian restaurant in the UK and one that offers great value for money.
