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.
Excellent. Informative and charming table staff. Fantastic food
Great welcome on arrival from two members of staff. Restaurant very quiet and felt a little lacking in atmosphere .Some staff very well informed re food and ingredients ,some less so .We felt service was slightly rushed .Fish dishes in our opinion were over priced . Delicious fishcakes as starters . Beetroot and honey dish very tasty . Desserts enjoyable but not stunning .
Absolutely delicious food, loved it!
A delightful evening of imaginative, beautifully prepared food with generous, well-chosen wine pairings. All so good it would be impossible to pick a favourite among the seven courses. The staff are great - informed, friendly and chatty but not at all intrusive. It was our second visit and we'll be back - such a relaxed atmosphere and in our opinion the food is as good as you'll find anywhere in Edinburgh, which is not short of good restaurants!
Such delicious food and great friendly and knowledgeable service.
Fantastic food, great and well informed staff. Wine lovely and good quality but expensive. Looking forward to a return visit.
Excellent meal, friendly and knowledgeable staff. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
We love Fhior! It's a save up to go experience but definitely worth it. So relaxed and friendly with the most amazing food and wine.
Such a wonderful space. The service from the moment we stepped in the door, to stepping out after a two hour lunch was simply perfect. Thank you.
Excellent meal. Looking forward to visiting again.
Beautiful well thought out menu. Beautiful flavours. Very impressed.
Lovely food. Somelier oozes knowledge and enthusiasm reflected in interesting choices fir tasting menu. Cheese board needs a molten smelly one. Liked the tasting menu. Delicious but prob not going to suffice fir a front row prop
First time for us since the move from Norn and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Great to see the level of excellence has continued. We’ll see you again on our next visit to Edinburgh
Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Fhior and staff incredibly helpful and friendly without being overbearing and superior. Food and variety excellent. Only disappointments on the night were wines which were maybe an acquired taste - especially Tenerife wine -bit smoky - table next door described it as 'hints of railway sleeper'!! Muscat was superb as was other white wine. Main thing to improve in our view is coffee which lacked flavour and intensity. Great evening and wish you lots of luck to get your exciting venture off the ground. The first 12 months will be the hardest but you have great people and skills.
Each course was full of fresh flavors, with subtle sauces and seasonings to accent the local ingredients. The dessert — lemon custard pie with pine powder flavored meringue was especially unique and memorable— and delicious. I chose the 4-course prix fixe plus a cheese board, and that was just enough to feel satisfied without feeling too full. The cocktails and wines were excellent, well curated and surprisingly reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The atmosphere is relaxed yet sophisticated — you will feel comfortable wearing jeans or a business suit.
Amazing food, with both unusual and well known ingredients prepared in novel ways. My highlight was the mallard smoked ham - divine! The decoration/style of the restaurant was a bit too simple for my liking but still very nice. Will certainly be back!
What a fantastic evening with great food, service and atmosphere. Will be back!!
Lovely food and accommodating staff. A bit dingy in the back room and the trip to the loos is slightly seedy, more like a pub than an upmarket eatery. We really didn’t like the lunchtime ‘sharing’ concept. This might be ok for croquettes or oysters, but an elegantly plated and garnished meat or fish dish does not lend itself to dividing up. We asked if it was possible to have a tasting menu at lunchtime and were pleased to be told that we could have this, if we ordered in advance. Next time we will definitely do this as we are rarely in Edinburgh for dinner and would love to try the full menu as the food is beautiful.
Excellent. We had the 4 course tasting menu and wine flight (1 veg). Each course was better than the previous and the wine choices were great. Beautiful food. Not a step wrong. Possible highlights were the skirlie and apple dessert. Wine choices from lesser known regions/styles and excellent. A stunning cairanne. Relaxed but attentive service.
We loved the delicate, fresh, seasonal flavours and the highly innovative flavour combinations. Everything was exceptional, from the food to the service to the carefully chosen wine list and we really look forward to our next visit!
Fabulous special Sunday lunch with Scott and Jamie! Wonderfully inventive cooking in a lovely relaxed atmosphere, with great service from the front of house. We will definitely return!
Very similar to previous meals at Norn , innovative tasty dishes , we will return
Absolutely superb meal. Lovely atmosphere permitting a bit of formality if that is what you’re looking for, but relaxed too. The food was incredible, exciting but still broadly appealing. We loved it and we will hopefully be back before long.
Was wonderful evening. Thank you to everyone x
Very pleasant environment, had the 7 course tasting menu which had a delightful variety of ingredients and subtle flavours and interesting presentation. Helpful staff and overall a delightful evening
