Very nicely cooked & presented food (steak as well as seafood) served with a smile. Excellent & sensibly priced wines, nice surroundings, casual but subliminally sophisticated dining experience in the restaurant, much more relaxed in the bar/bistro part.

We have been frequenting Fishers in Leith for more than 20 years, but on Friday night their service really let them down. Most of the food was as good as ever, except for the Mussels being over cooked. However after the mains being cleared away, the service fell into a vacuum. We asked for Desert menus, and after 10 minute... More

Had a wonderful meal here, with as you would expect by the name the food emphasis being on fish. What an excellent selection of food is offered. The staff are very friendly and most helpful, a fine experience all round.

My son and his wife bought us a voucher for Fishers on the Shore as a present. We have eaten before at Fishers and thoroughly enjoyed the food. This visit was no exception. The staff were very courteous and helpful and the meal was excellent. My wife had Monk Fish and I had a GIANT Lemon Sole which was bigger... More

Not sure what the main restaurant is like as we ate at a high table in the bar which we thought was a good vantage point. We had an excellent meal here and the service was efficient and friendly. The decor is rather dated, and could do with refreshing, but it's nice to go somewhere with character and has not... More

We eat here several times a year and recommend it to anyone who will listen! The food is always good, we've never had an average meal, let alone a bad one, in 20+ visits spanning 20 years. The top dining room is nice, but small, and can get crowded and noisy, especially during the Festival or on rugby weekends. However,... More

Really enjoyed lunch. Was tempted by several dishes. In the end, waiter was not fazed by us choosing two starters. Outside references to 1995 awards are off putting. Better to remove them! Interior coulda freshened up a bit but food and service make up for that

If you want seafood this is the place. Top quality all the time and we go a lot if in Edinburgh. Book though. Can't say enough about Fishers but lots of new eating places springing up within yards. Top drawer. JET.

A "must eat" at restaurant! The seafood is just divine - The oysters were out of this world and the main dishes of Scottish fish were fantastic. Good wine list, good service and a really good atmosphere. Love it!

Had a nice and tasty monkfish dinner served by a warm and accommodating waitress. Quiet bar-like settling.
