“Fresh and delicious fish and seafood” is served in a “classy” yet “friendly and informal” environment at this extremely popular “stylish modern venue”, in an office block, “with great views over busy city streets in the centre of Edinburgh”. Top Tip – “the extra bonus of ‘Oyster Happy Hour’ every day from 5:30-6:30: oysters for a pound at the best fish restaurant in town!”
Mixed feedback this year on this “bustling seafood restaurant” – a “spacious and comfortable” operation, in an office block on the Royal Mile. Most reporters vaunt it as offering “Edinburgh’s best seafood”, but it was not without critics who found it “repeatedly underwhelming” and “expensive”.
“A superb choice of fish of the highest quality” and “superb” seafood has established this “lovely, light and bright” operation (part of an office block off the Royal Mile) as one of Edinburgh’s most popular dining destinations.
The setting within an office block off the Royal Mile may be “rather clinical”, but on most accounts the seafood dishes on offer are “worth saving up for”; that said, there were occasions this year when the cooking seemed “more competent than inspired”.

"The roasted seafood platter was worth the flight alone. Freshest produce carefully cooked and a genuine thing of beauty. Lovely service. Loud."
