Welcome to Fhior
Fhior, meaning ‘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.
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.
Dining at Fhior felt like a delightful adventure – the food and many of the wine selections were surprising and delicious, and the staff was warm and knowledgeable.
great service, great lunch
fantastic meal. fantastic matched wines. all in all a superb experience!
We had a lovely Valentine’s Day date night at Fhior. With simple, contemporary designs shaping the bright restaurant, we enjoyed 4 courses of innovative dishes. The food was excellent, including the ‘best carrot’ we’d ever tasted!
Fascinating, playful cooking and fantastic service. Great wine programme, too - what a thoroughly special place!!
La qualité des produits, l'humilité culinaire et la volonté d'innover font de ce repas un grand moment. Vive la gastronomie écossaise !
Excellent meal served at a perfect pace. Our table was in a room at the back and perhaps there were too many diners in the space. There was a lot of background noise which interfered with our ability to hear the description of the dishes by the excellent waiters.
Delicious meal with friendly service. Excellent value for high quality food.
Thank you for such a lovely lunch, everything was delicious and just the right portion size. We'll see you for dinner next time we're in Edinburgh
A superb meal. A great appreciation of our best Scottish produce, The best cod dish I have eaten. Depth of flavours spot on. " True " respect to simple ingredients and produce resulting in sublime food and presentation.
Very good food and wine!
Remarkable food. Every plate an adventure. Service is slick but not stuffy. Fhior is fairly new kind on the block. Get in before you can’t get a tsbke.
Great menu well executed. Service was good for a business lunch. Quality of ingredients were very good Much enjoyed by all Thank you
Catered for my food intolerances perfectly . Didn’t feel I was missing out .
My favourite restaurant in Edinburgh
Excellent meal! Thoughtfully coursed. Each plate was a standout on its own but they all went very well together. We didn't do the wine pairing and it was still exceptional.
Truly exceptional meal. The food was innovative without being overly fussy. The seconds was a carrot. It was the most amazing carrot I have ever had. The wine pairings were superb and well explained by the sommelier
Loved it! Can't wait to return.
Excellent menu, been meaning to go here for some time. Needs to get a coffee machine as you really do need an espresso after a nice meal. Oh, and the Christmas music on a loop only had 10 songs and became annoying pretty quickly. Anyway, worth the visit as you really can see the preparation that goes into each dish.
Excellent evening. Wonderful food. Sat in the first section - lacks some character/accents/warmth. Lovely service. Although we had requested a list of courses and wine accompaniment at the end of the evening and it didn't materialise. Not a deal breaker, obviously, but something to note.
Very tasty food. Fun mixes of flavours and portions were good. Nice mix of veg and meat themed dishes. Polite and friendly service, felt that the time between dishes could be shorter, the whole meal took almost three hours which we felt was slightly too long. Bread was amazing!
Having eaten at Fhior so many times, it's becoming more and more difficult to find new words to express how wonderful the whole experience is! Wonderful skill! Excellent, cheerful service, and above all integrity and great respect for the ingredients and produce. THANK YOU,!
Great food and service. Had the 7 course tasting menu and matching wine. Every course was very good and the staff were very knowledgable. Would definitely go back.
Thank you very much for a really wonderful meal. We liked the style and the feel of the restaurant and the excellent food and interesting wine pairings made for lots of tastes and some learnings. The service was first class and friendly. Duncan Maclennan
The food and wine were both good but definately not better than that. For the price I should have been blown away, I certainly wasn’t. The decor is very poor and basic, and the restaurant was cold. Both of which assisted for a rather poor atmosphere. Somthing which is essential to create a magical dining experience, which for £140 a head should be achieved.
