Aberdour is a lovely wee place we wandered around before heading for the Forth View Hotel for our lunch in the acclaimed Room With A View Restaurant. Didn't see any signs so had to stop and ask a local where exactly it was. Headed for the Silver Sands and eventually got a wee sign that pointed us in right direction.... More

You are never going to happen across this delightful fish restaurant as it is not on a road to anywhere. The menu is very focussed on marine offerings and very well prepared. It is however thus well worth the effort of hunting it out and making the effort to get there. It is possible to drive down the amazingly steep... More

Not regulars but perhaps fourth visit and it is still special to arrive and look forward to a lovely meal. Very enjoyable. Even remembered a torch to walk back up to to car although we are always offered a lift by Hannah.

Booked lunch here as we had enjoyed previous meals and we were certainly not disappointed. The staff were all very welcoming and we were promptly attended. Our starters were amazing and although we love fish, my partner selected the vegetarian starter and it was truly delicious. I would recommend the monkfish, which was amazing, but all the dishes are freshly... More

Have to agree with other reviewer best restaurant in Fife. Food is delicious and beautifully presented. Menu changes frequently so always different choices to try. Hannah and staff make you feel welcome. Last but not least the chauffeur service to and from the station is much appreciated.

This family run restaurant is a revelation. Beautifully prepared and incredibly fresh fish and seafood, much of it landed in the local harbour. A destination in its own right with friendly service and a delightful ambiance. This is a must for anyone who really appreciates good cooking. Fabulous views over the Firth of Forth

Booked this after reading some reviews and my word were they right. The road down to it is nothing short of exhilarating but they do offer a free shuttle service, one I would use every time. Upon arrival we were shown to a small lounge which was like a living room so very comfortable, drinks were ordered and menus perused.... More

Room With a View, although a bit difficult to find, is well worth the effort. An old private house, right on the shores of the Firth of Forth. You get a real sense of a personal welcome here. A quick drink in the lounge before going into the Dining Room. Although fish features heavily, there are many alternatives, all deliciously... More

Wow. I think this sums the food up pretty well. I will start on a slight downside as the scallops were nice but could have been better however the prawns (crevettes) were very tasty ( stole one off hubby). Now to the best bit was monkfish red thai curry this dish has got to be the best meal I have... More

Description
Room with A View, Seafood Restaurant situated within the Forth View Hotel in the coastal village Aberdour, Fife. Enjoy succulent scallops, wholesome halibut & Fresh Langoustines and many more delicious seasonal seafood dishes cooked to exquisite perfection. Whilst also enjoying the small but special menu you can enjoy the spectacular views of Edinburgh and the river Forth whilst listening to local Classical Guitar player Nick Rees on the sound system (who also plays live on occasion). Every seat offers a view of Edinburgh or Aberdour Harbour or climbers on the Hawkcraig Cliffs. On a sunny day it is nice to enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the garden area or eat Al fresco
