Incredible

The food was absolutely outstanding, definitely one of the best meals I've ever had. The fish of the day was supreme, not what I had originally expected (which was a standard fish supper) it was out of this world.

The food was absolutely outstanding, definitely one of the best meals I've ever had. The fish of the day was supreme, not what I had originally expected (which was a standard fish supper) it was out of this world. Staff were also very helpful and genuine, seemed like a small family run business with limited tables so book in advance!

Been to this restaurant numerous times now and the food is always amazing and the service is brilliant. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. Although it may be a bit pricey it is definitely worth a visit and I have enjoyed every meal I have had here. Would definitely recommend it!

Had a lovely meal here whilst on a business visit and would visit again. Felt well looked after and food, ambience etc was just right. Could've eaten the mussels started all day. Didn't leave too much room for my main. Only thing I'd note on that - had the duck special. There was a lot going on on the plate.... More

Good selection of French style food, such that my wife and I deliberately chose different dishes for our three course mid-week dinner. We have perhaps been spoiled by our experience of fantastic food in France but great to see The Wee Restaurant leading the way En Ecosse!

My wife and I booked a table for a meal here, from booking by phone to leaving the staff were attentive and pleasant. The food served was absolutely brilliant. We had mussels and smoked fillet of beef for starters that set the bar high! Then our mains came out, Rump Steak and Scallops both cooked amazingly well, Bread and Butter... More

We have been meaning to try this restaurant for ages and are so glad we finally did. For lunch, the starters we had were the white onion soup and asparagus salad, both of which were excellent. Whilst my main of sea bass on squid ink risotto was again excellent, the other main of confit of duck leg disappointed. The duck... More

The Wee Restaurant is one of my favourites. The quality of ingredients is excellent, cooked imaginatively & to perfection! A real treat.

Fifteen minutes by train out of Edinburgh in North Queensferry you will this gem of a restaurant at the bottom of a hill, just down from the train station and in the shadow of the Firth of Forth rail bridge. Quite small, this intimate restaurant has loads to offer in terms of its local, fresh menu. Our party of six... More

Went to the Wee Restaurant for the first time a few weeks ago, and as the title says, so close to a perfect meal. What a great wee setting, just underneath the rail bridge, sea air on the wind, really idyllic. Very pleasant staff, chef and front of house both said 'hi' and gave us a choice of seat. Before...

Thanks for reviewing us. We are glad you enjoyed your meal with us but obviously disappointed and apologetic about your wife's steak and Choc Fondant. I'd really like it if you could contact me via email or phone to discuss this further. We would not like to think we didn't meet our high expectations and will indeed investigate this. It... More
