4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2014 NEW

Let's start with the problem - lack of soft furnishings make this restaurant very noisy, which is exacerbated by the proximity of the tables - all far to close to each other. The menu, we found to be very limited, and all dishes in a certain style - but everything was tasty and nicely presented, apart from the cheeseboard -... More

Thank you for taking the time to review The Wee Restaurant. I'm glad you gave us 4/5 for your experience but was saddened by your remarks. I agree it was very busy when you were visiting us on Saturday, as the 50th Anniversary of the Forth Road Bridge was happening on this evening, making the restaurant atmosphere quite loud at... More

We went to the Wee restaurant for lunch today. The menu was compact but everything we tried was expertly executed. The mussels in the cream, pancetta and parmesan sauce was beautiful. Our waitress was incredibly helpful and couldn't have been more attentive. We would thoroughly recommend.

Visited the Wee Restaurant on Friday for lunch, we did book which I think is advisable, although there were not many people in at all which is surprising. The food, service, and wine were all fantastic. They do a set lunch menu, with a choice of around 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 puddings, around £17.00 for 2 courses which... More

Great food, reasonably priced. Great service. But the restaurant is quite small (hence the name), so reservations are a must.

We discovered this little restaurant quite by chance while walking the Fife Coastal Path through North Queensferry and decided to return sometime for dinner later in the summer. So, three months later we did just that, getting there in just fifteen minutes by train from Haymarket. Both food and service were great. My starter of a duck scotch egg was... More

Small restaurant situated on the north shore of the River Forth almost under the Forth (Railway) Bridge. Went there for lunch and had a choice of 3 starters, 4 mains and 2 puds. Excellent food, presentation and welcoming staff. I thoroughly recommend Craig's Shetland Mussels with bacon, fresh basil, pine nuts and Parmesan - available as a starter or a... More

I really enjoyed my night out with friends at this lovely "wee" restaurant. I have food intolerances, which were accommodated without any fuss. In fact, I'd say the staff went out of their way to provide appetising alternatives to the menu. We all enjoyed our meals, which were beautifully presented. I had the mussels to start and the sea bass... More

Came here on an ITISON voucher last Monday and wondered why we had never been to this amazing restaurant before. Couldn't fault a thing from food to service. The soup was gorgeous and thick. Carrot Corriander with ginger and chives. I'm not a big liver fan but decided to see if I could be turned and it was amazing, the... More

We found the restaurant easily on Main Street and the welcome was very friendly. It is a small restaurant but the staff immediately brought us the water we wished which was refreshing on a warm day. The choices of the menu were not extensive but it still gave us a problem to select our starters and main course. The service... More

This is a great 'wee restaurant' in a lovely spot with great views of the bridge just around the corner. The menu is varied and everything was cooked perfectly. I had the Shetland mussels for a starter which were to die for as was my main of mushroom risotto. We were a party of four and everything we ordered was... More
