I hade the Smoked Haddock Kedgeree and my wife the mussels for starters. Very tasteful and enjoyable. Mains was Fish and Chips for me and the whole Sea Bass for my better half.

We visited Leith on a Saturday lunchtime and went to The Ship on the Shore based on TripAdvisor recommendations. The location is a good spot for Leith and the restaurant was very clean and well presented. The menu choice was very good. The mussels were very good, though the fish and chips were pretty standard. The main issue really was... More

They also offer an excellent seafood based breakfast which is always interestingly different from the usual such menus. The staff are entirely welcoming and accommodating of any of our individual requests. The atmosphere and decor are warm with much attention to detail. We would recommend... More

The menu board outside this lovely pub/restaurant read very well, if a little on the expensive side, but we decided to give it a try. On entering, we were warmly greeted by the... More

We wandered in at a strange time of day - too late for lunch, but not really dinner - and were greeted by very friendly and attentive staff. As it was a bitter cold day, we both needed something warm and hearty so decided on the seafood pie. Really delicious and very filling (a bit too much for me, in... More

We always visit this restaurant at least once a year. It was as good as ever and the staff can't do enough for us. Can't wait to go back again as the steaks are amazing!
