GORDON Ramsay is charging punters £75 a head for a Valentine’s Day dinner which includes a shared dessert – no alcohol included.
The 55-year-old Scottish chef – who has previously been criticized for his expensive portions – offers the meal at his new restaurant Bread Street Kitchen & Bar in Edinburgh.
The four-course meal is offered for romantic holidays between February 12 and 14.
But the meal costs around £65.20 per person.
It includes an automatic 15% service charge, which would bring the price to £75 for a solo dinner.
But the biggest bill for those who frequent Bread Street Kitchen will be booze.
Those wishing to eat there are advised on the site to email the restaurant sommelier for a list of wine prices as they are not listed on the site.
Valentine’s dinner begins with a selection of canapes to share, including smoked salmon, chicken wings and truffle arancini.
This stemmed from a selection of starters, including steak tartare or straciatella with traditional beets, pine nuts and dill.
Diners will then move on to the main meal which includes a choice of Ramsay’s signature Beef Wellington for two, Steamed Seaside or Spicy Tuna Tartare.
To finish, bettors are offered a chocolate brownie and Cranachan monkey shoulder cheesecake for dessert.
It’s not the first time the celebrity chef has come under fire for the awards at Edinburgh’s new restaurant – which opened in November last year.
On its normal menu, it asks customers to shell out £17.50 for a burger and £16.50 for a fish and chips.
Beef options include £40 for a 10oz rib eye steak and £38 for his signature Beef Wellington.
Steaks are served with cherry tomatoes, grilled mushrooms and watercress – but chips and gravy cost extra with chips £4.50 and gravy £2.
Starters start at £7.50 for the cullen skink with the most expensive a west coast langoustine at £17.50 with lemon mayonnaise and Espelette pepper.
Customers can also enjoy a Sunday roast with all the trimmings for £25.
For dessert, the sticky toffee pudding will set you back £7 and a cheese platter £10.50.

‘GRUB PUB AT GASTRONOMIC PRICES’
Fans of the sworn restaurateur took to social media and TripAdvisor to discuss the costs.
One person wrote: “Total bill £265! It’s not a cheap lunch.
“All overpriced probably because of the location and Gordon’s name on the door.
“Overall I felt like a ripped off tourist in my own town, the pieces were nice but waaaay overpriced.”
Another posted: ‘Food isn’t great or rubbish etc, it’s just glorified pub chow, at fancy prices.’
A third added: “Too expensive for the ambiance and service…
“If you’re trying to be a good, expensive restaurant, behave like one.
“If you want to be an average restaurant, lower your prices!”
The new restaurant marks the celebrity chef’s first-ever restaurant in the capital and an expansion of his casual dining chain.
Ramsay was approached for comment.
