It’s been nearly 10 years since I ate at this restaurant- and it’s only improved with time. Great food, lovely service and brilliant atmosphere. Check out the music in the bar or eat in the lovely dining room. Warm welcome and great value.

Of course, all RESTAURANTS welcome small well behaved animals into their dining rooms. Well, so long as they are registered service dogs... #wow

Situated on the Leith waterfront, The Shore is the ideal destination for those wishing to spend an evening in Edinburgh���s historic port. Boats line the harbourside where the sun sets slowly on hot summer nights, making The Shore a quiet and idyllic location: perfect for a relaxing evening and an intimate meal. The ambience is warm and charming, enhanced by the traditional and candlelit d��cor of informal 18th century wood panelling, huge mirrors and real fires. The cuisine fuses classic British dishes with a modern European twist; we love the pecan-crusted fillet of ostrich, served with blue cheese dauphinoise potatoes and green beans. After dinner, head to the bar, where live entertainment is provided most evenings by local jazz and folk musicians.
