What a great place just off of The Royal Mile. Delicious fresh seafood and a welcoming atmosphere. Magic!

I ordered the menu of the day (3 courses). That included a couple of entrees choices per course. I had the smoked salmon salad, which was delicious, the sea bass with sautéed spinach and grilled tomato, and sticky toffee pudding. All were tasty. My companion ordered the langoustine special, which cost more than my three course meal. It was only... More

It was not possible to order the menu at 20.00, and for the money we paid, we could have done a lot better elsewhere. This restaurant was recommended to us by a shopowner on the Royal Mile, but I found better fish restaurants in Edinburgh.

We were told that this is a good seafood restaurant and you won't be disappointed if you just want seafood. I am disappointed because I expected more. They have fish, oyster, Scottish lobster and scallops. The food is OK and fish soup is slightly salty. Service is OK and the 3 course pricing is close to the others nearby. It... More

We happened upon this restaurant just when we were ready for a bite of lunch and it offered us just what we were looking for - an inexpensive, tasty, light lunch in a central location in a restaurant that did not appear to be part of a chain or branded in any way. We arrived at 2pm and the restaurant... More

A very good meal after inadvertantly coming across the restaurant as we wondered down the royal mile. Would thoroughly recommend the whole grilled sea bream - crispy on the outside and deliciously juicy inside. The meal was excellent but unfortunately, we happened upon the Mussel and Steak bar the following evening and Creelers was slightly eclipsed by what we ate... More

My wife and I dined at this restaurant on 22 August 2012. Restaurant was not busy at all. The owner/manager was not at all welcoming. We waited a while before a young male waiter came to take our drinks order. Then we had to wait for a while before he came to take our food order. Almost an hour after... More

Our travel agent recommended this restaurant and we're very glad he did. Our food was great, the staff helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed our dinner here very much and it wasn't very far from our hotel.
