This was absolutely a brilliant experience. I can't find fault with anything at all. The food was very good, and the service was top notch. It was good quality, and reasonably priced for what it was. The manager was friendly and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Definitely worth the money.

Incredible seafood from one of the best seas in the world for crustation. Really warm and cosy atmosphere. Friendly and very knowledgeable staff. Fabulous wine - if not a bit pricey. Really enjoyed the whole evening and it felt like a treat.

I had a Fruit de Mers Royale which was very good. I'm a seafood junkie and this place really delivers. It has a warm and friendly ambience and the staff know their products and were very friendly efficient and knowledgeable. It is good value for money and they have a very good wine list. It was a very good evening... More

Visited here for my birthday with my boyfriend and it was one of the nicest meals I've ever had. We booked here after reading trip advisor reviews, I honestly cannot understand how it has received poor reviews as I cannot fault my experience. We made a reservation a few weeks in advance and the website recommends you do so, turned... More

Visited last weekend (3/10) the place was packed with a warming welcome. Considering I had never had fish before I had a excellent evening the smoked haddock with black pudding was amazing which followed up with a whole sea bass with noddles & veg random combo but it worked so well. Would recommend the place to anyone.

Came here for a late lunch, so delighted that they were still serving at 3pm. Our waitress was just charming. Very friendly, chatty and funny, but also very good at her job. I had a huge bowl of mussels in a very tasty broth, full of flavour and it was refreshing that they didn't come in the ubiquitous white wine... More

There are so many great eating places in Leith that it is sometimes difficult to choose! For a late September Saturday lunch we chose one of our favourites - the Ship on the Shore. I chose their take on a 'surf and turf' club sandwich - lobster and steak - and was certainly not disappointed. However, it was my partner's... More

We had lunch on a Monday, it was empty when we arrived, when we left there was another couple sitting down, would have appreciated a little more atmosphere. We both had the same meals, The queen scallops were tiny, too small to appreciate the taste, the accompanying green salad was good. The Sea Bass with ginger stir fried vegetables and... More
