Excellent in every way. Lovely dining room, great ambience. The service was slick, but friendly. Some of the best fish I have eaten anywhere in the world. Langoustine tails to die for and a divine lemon sole cooked to perfection!

Fabulous lunch at Fishers Loved the octopus nachos and the arbroath smokies fritters. Mussels a wee bit dry, but nice. The salmon with vichyssoise sauce, tatties and cress was delicious, but the lobster with garlic butter and home made chips was the absolute highlight. 🤤

Much awaited meal having read such raving review. Starters were good but my husband's lobster bisque was not hot. The mains were very badly cooked and presented. Not at all impressed. Erratic service.
