Went for a romantic meal here for a birthday dinner. Staff were friendly, service was fast, and the food was excellent. The Monkfish and the Isle of Gigha Halibut were both beautifully presented and both incredibly delicious! Would highly recommend.

Visited early evening. The restaurant is small and informal- the prices are not. The scallop starter was very promising, the skewered balls were rubbery but were accompanied by a tasty salad. For main course we had sea bass and lemon sole - the fish was...More

Managed to squeeze a booking here on a 6 nations sports weekend and took a short taxi ride from Edinburgh centre to Leith waterside to try this restaurant, recommended by our friendly hotel receptionists. The ambience was great, a cozy but modern interior, very professional...More

Thinking of travelling up from Newcastle for our anniversary dinner - would you recommend this restaurant or Fishers in the City as somewhere special? How far out of city centre is Fishers? Can anyone advise please?

I used to love Fishers pre-children as a treat. Now I have a 5 & 7 year old I'm wondering if children are welcome? It's been a while but from what I can recall, there weren't ever any kids in the restaurant when I used to visit. Cheers, Nicola
