Love this restaurant, never disappoints. Atmosphere great, friendly helpful staff and yummy food, what more could you ask for? One of our party didn't like fish, this was not a problem as plenty of other choices.

One of the best fish restaurants I’ve been to in a lot of years! The service was absolutely perfect even at the busiest time of day and the food was magnificent. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Thoroughly good fish in a relaxing restaurant. Service was very good with extra effort being demonstrated by smiley staff. Mussels excellent as were the scallops. Reasonable value across the food and wine. Would not hesitate to return again.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
