After reading the reviews on tripadvisor we had to try this place. It was very quiet but it was a wet and windy tuesday night, service was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. We were very impressed by the menu and enjoyed some unusual but delicious dishes particularly the pigeon and the coconut polenta chicken. Nicely tucked away off the royal mile and not at all expensive, definitely recommend and will return next time! Thanks for a lovely evening.

Not that I know that many restaurants in the centre of Edinburgh, but Porto & Fi is definitely a keeper. So close to Waverley station it's a great meeting point or a reliable restaurant to have lunch/dinner at while you're waiting for your train. Such a treat to escape into its calm atmosphere from the rush of the city. I love the décor, the staff is friendly, the portions are generous and the “Cullen Skink Risotto" is a dish that makes my taste buds sing.

After spending the morning at Edinburgh castle we came across this place for lunch. It had some quite unusual dishes on the menu - for example I had chicken with coconut and Polenta crumb with sweet potato and red cabbage. All was cooked beautifully and tasted great!

We loved our coffee. The food hit the spot - the porridge & salmon Benedict were yummy. Really nice room with great light and a warm, helpful staff. It's a sure thing, and right near all the top tourist spots. Enjoy.

If you are looking for something different than the typical pub, you should go to Porto & Fi. Modern and stylish and the food is really nice. Don't forget to go to toilet when you are there. Fascinating what you can discover beneath an Edinburg bistro.
