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

We were made welcome as soon as we walked through the door, the service was excellent. We were a bit worried as we had some meat eaters with us, we shouldn't have the steak was a great option. Would really recommend this restaurant, in fact we went back the night after and had the same service.

We were recommended this place by a friend who gushed about the best Langoustines he's ever tasted. So off we went in the rain out to Leith and we were not disappointed. Great menu, lovely old pub but the service was a bit slow when we were there. We had some great oysters and I had a good Sea Bass... More

Very friendly welcome and fitted us into a busy restaurant Friday night despite no reservation... Barman provided knowledgable answers to locally produced alcohol (recommend a Edinburgh gin called The Botanist!) Service was attentive without being intrusive; menu had good selection of both shell and fish meat We shared crab salad and oysters to start and was plenty.. Crab salad is... More

I went there one night with a friend. Chose this by accident. We both had cullen skink and a lobster. Cullen skink was average, very mild. But the lobster was really good. Prices are reasonable. I loved the interior though, supposed to look like the interior of a ship. Very climatic, dark. All in all, a pleasant experience in the... More

Ate off the Galley (bar) menu early evening. Mussels were bland and Haddock in a beer batter was over cooked with a really thick batter, both served with thick cut frozen, not hand cut, chips. From the reviews we were really looking forward to eating fish at this restaurant and have to say it was very disappointing from the bar... More

Great meal! I had Cullen skink my husband the fish cakes. Both fantastic. This was followed by by a cold seafood platter for two, it was lovely. We couldn't fault the food, or the wine. The service was also excellent, very attentive. We had an early table and reservations are definitely recommend as the place was heaving, they were turning... More

Have often been here for breakfast when in Edinburgh. I always look forward to it and it is always faultless - make sure you book in advance if you don't want to miss out!
