In a converted city-centre warehouse, this “popular and well-run fish venue” is a “dependable” and “excellent value” spot that has been going strong for a decade (and earned a special shout-out this year for its “delicious lobster”). You’ll find the original Fishers near the Leith shore, right by their Shore Bar and Restaurant, offering classic British food with a Euro spin.

An “excellent choice of fish and shellfish” again wins applause for this long standing sibling to the original, near the Leith shore, which occupies a converted warehouse handy for the National Gallery.

This converted warehouse is “a great place to enjoy seafood”, and is handily located for the National Gallery and Waverley station. A well-established offshoot of a long-serving Leith original, it offers a straightforward range of fresh fish and shellfish, served hot and cold.

“Wonderful fresh seafood and fish is imaginatively presented and served unpretentiously at a very reasonable price” at this relaxed bistro, handy for the National Gallery (and a spin-off of a veteran Leith venture).

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
