What a lovely little find! Food was excellent and waitress was friendly & knowledgeable. Food is very good value for money, cooked perfectly & presented very well. They also do a set menu which I very reasonably priced. We will definitely be returning.

First off, this little gem of a place right under the rail bridge to Edinburgh oozes character. We made reservations for a Sunday night and were glad that we did - a couple of walk-ins were turned away. The 2 or 3 course menu is always changing, but apparently usually has a steak, a couple of fish options, and other... More

Made our second visit to the wee restaurant recently. Whilst there is little to fault with the food, and the staff are friendly and efficient, we do feel it's rather expensive. Comparing it to similar standards in Edinburgh, I think you could get better value over there. However it is nice to head out of town sometimes, and the location... More

I've been going once a year for about 6 years and based on originality, quality, presentation, service and price, on balance this is simply the best restaurant in the world ..... and for afters, the stunning views of the Forth Rail Bridge. The only downside .... it's a two hour drive from home!

Had dinner here on Thursday 9th July with my husband. A friend recommended this "wee" place to us, and it was our first time here. The menu looked good on the website and we saw that the Chef - Craig - had recently won an award, so thought we'd give it a try. The food was excellent. My husband had... More

Lovely wee! Place right in the heart of north Queensferry. It's right under the forth bridge. Food was good, they didn't have a childrens menus but our children coped.

Visited The Wee Restaurant on recommendation, looked promising with the reviews on this site, Michelin recommended, Good Food Guide entry, expectations were high. I found the service was good but the food was average. Maybe this was just an off night but based on this visit, I was sadly disappointed and probably won't make the effort to visit again.

The tables were too small, and close together for comfort. A wed night - should have taken 1 table seating 2 out when unlikely to be really busy and would make all the difference in the feeling of the restaurant. Waitress very pleasant but where we sat, had difficulty hearing husband talking across table ( just us two) over sound... More

I had a meal here last night and it was outstanding. £36 for three courses. Starter was goats cheese croton which was served to perfection. This was followed by Perthshire lamb which was tender and pink atop a pea risotto which was creamy and moist. I then had panacotta for desert which was first class - not full of gelatine... More
