About Fhior

Welcome to Fhior
Fhior, an abduction of the word for ‘true’ in Gaelic, was opened in June 2018 by Scott and Laura Smith with the vision to create a dining experience that is reflective of the restaurant’s namesake. Fhior gives an offering that is true to both the produce and the guest.

We believe that serious food and wine should not only be accessible, but should also be playful and light-hearted, and remembering that we should not take ourselves so seriously in providing excellence.

Fhior allows you to enjoy food and hospitality delivered with passion and skill, without pretension.

The food
At the heart of everything is sourcing. All of our menus and dishes begin with this as our primary focus. We want to highlight a key ingredient in the peak of its season and creatively enhance its vibrancy and flavour.

It is important to us that our food has a strong identity with its roots firmly in Scottish produce.

I don’t often leave feedback but want to make an exception because I think Fhior at Jupiter has such potential. Excellent service, amazing food. Your bread alone showed the care and effort that goes into your cooking. All 4 courses were excellent. However, I’m sorry but there simply wasn’t enough food - particularly on the main hogget course. It felt like we were served half a tasting menu given the portion sizes. Even though the cooking, service and ambience were wonderful, all of it pales when you finish your meal feeling hungry. It wouldn’t take much tweaking to correct this - a more substantial meat/main course and some cheese at the end (which would encourage guests to linger over wine) is all it would take for me to give it 10/10 and recommend to all my friends.

Fantastic place to dine. My wife and I were visiting Europe and were looking at nice places to eat. Fhior were on some blogs so we decided to give it a try. The service was friendly and excellent. One of their waitresses was from Canberra (we're Australian) so we had a nice little chat. Food was amazingly delicious. Memorable dishes were the fried pigs ears and halibut. The atmosphere and ambience was very nice as well. Well designed interior with nice soft light from outside streaming in. Probably the best meal we had in Europe :)

Thoroughly enjoyable meal. We went for the 4 course option with matched wines and could not fault the quality of the food or wine. Fantastic combinations of flavours. My only criticism would be that portion sizes were quite modest, maybe perfect for 7 courses but might need to be slightly scaled up for 4. Staff all very friendly and informative.

Loved our 5 course taster courtesy of itison. All the dishes were excellent. Particularly enjoyed the sea trout, halibut and its tasty bisque and the scallops on 'special'. Service was great too. Loved the chef describing the dishes brought to the table. Will be back!

The lunch deal was excellent and it was fun to be able to select a number of smaller dishes and therefore be able to sample a wider range of the delicious food on offer. Hopefully the lunch menu will change from time to time to allow us to sample a new set of lunchtime options on our next visit.

There is a lot to say about Fhior. If nothing else it is certainly an experience to dine there. Without a doubt the worst experience I've had of dining out in Edinburgh. Having looked forward to it based on a number of very positive reviews, we arrived their quite hungry. An aperitif was not offered and we were left munching through some very artisanal but slightly burnt crusted bread. The four course menu we chose, consisted of four of the smallest plates I've ever seen. The halibut was delicious but was a 2 inch square sat in sauce. The Angus asparagus was delicious, and we were given 4 pieces each. The hogget and accompanying chickpea mush was really quite awful. Chewy, urgent in taste and so rare it wouldn't meet most tastes. Finally the rhubarb dish, which we were told should be reminiscent of sticking raw rhubarb in a bag of sugar as a child, was sooooo tart it was inedible, that with the almost raw rhubarb, left me with a tummy ache. The saving grace was the wine pairing, although that doubled the cost of the meal to £75 - the wine was good and interestingly explained by the sommelier. All in all we left slightly tipsy, but not having few we had had a meal. The dining room itself is sparse, cold and has no atmosphere. So all in all not a restaurant to go to if you want a good meal in nice surroundings.

Your tasting menu portions are so small it is difficult to make any informed judgement on overall quality. Wine list small but pricey - wine waiter a bit pompous. Room is dull and lacks atmosphere. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Flavours and presentation were delicious. Service was excellent too, Loved the food and appreciate it's about quality not quantity but portions could be bigger, especially the main course and dessert.

We were delighted to be able to visit the first of several special evening meals provided by Fhior @ the also unique and special Jupiter Artland on the outskirts of Edinburgh. It was as expected - a unique and magical evening with exquisite food, excellent and friendly service in an amazing setting. A highlight: How is it possibe to lift humble peasemeal to the sophisticated hights of "Peasemeal Terrine" - it was an incredible accomplishmnet.
