This is the second year 8 grumpy old golfers with very discerning palates have been to Ship on the Shore for a Christmas Lunch which extended to early evening. Food and service was top notch . The staff are very knowledgeable and the wine is very fairly priced. Ship on the Shore do not do a Christmas menu but the... More

Although this place lies a taxi trip of approx. £ 12 away from Edinburgh centre, I'd say it's worth the journey. It is one of the most tastefully decorated restaurants I've been to, so suiting a seafood place. A bit pricey, OK, but I guess most people go there on special occasions, so did my wife and I just now.... More

While a bit pricey, the Ship on the Shore more than makes up for it in quality. We spent around eighty bucks for three people between shared starter, beer and entrees. The mussels with garlic weren't particularly special, but the surf & turf sandwich and the seafood pie were outstanding. The ambiance was good and the staff was well trained... More

We walked past earlier in the day and were tempted back by the fantastic blackboard menu outside. The staff were so friendly and couldnt have been any more attentive which was great. The food was amazing and we were not rushed or hassled at any point. We were after a good fishy dinner and we were totally satisfied by the... More

A lovely atmosphere even though it was a quiet evening in the restaurant, there was a reasonable flow of people. The menu is very fish orientated as the name of the restaurant would ilude to, i opted for a steak which was cooked to perfection. The service was very attentive but not intrusive, I would return.

This is definitely a restaurant we will go back to if/when in Edinburgh again. The food was marvellous and so was the wine. We had Scallops for starters and we both wanted to lick our plates afterward. My main course was the smaller version of Moules Frites, which is more than enough for one grown man. The bigger one (bowl)... More

Came here with partner and his parents last night, as we were in town for the weekend. It's a smart and comfortable space, and the service was excellent from first to last, sufficiently attentive but unobtrusive. Our glasses never emptied, for instance, and the large amount of food we ordered was skilfully accommodated at our table. We ordered the Fruits... More
