Chef/Proprietor Jamie Nicolson is a native to Helensburgh, having spent his early years in the town before moving to Portugal with his family at the age of 8. In Portugal, Jamie’s family owned a Portuguese restaurant which ignited his passion for cooking. Upon returning to Helensburgh in his late teens Jamie embarked on a career in professional cookery. Jamie trained with MacDonald Hotels and started his career at the 5 star Cameron House Hotel on Loch Lomond. During his time at Cameron House Jamie met legendary chef Albert Roux and was invited to work as a stagiaire in his Michelin starred restaurant Le Gavroche. Jamie returned to Scotland to progress his career in luxury fine dining establishments including Glasgow’s esteemed One Devonshire Gardens. Most recently Jamie was the Head Chef at the world famous Loch Fyne Oyster Bar at Cairndow, in conjunction with Ondine Restaurant in Edinburgh. Jamie’s cookery is undoubtedly influenced by simple Portuguese flavours and cooking styles. However, Jamie is equally as passionate about the Scottish larder and produce, with a specific flare for fish and seafood, using high quality local produce, and letting the seasons determine what goes on the plate.
