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.
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.
Stuart the sommelier is a star!
had a lovely dinner, thanks
First time at Fhior and very impressed. Edinburgh is not short of top class restaurants and Fhior is certainly one of the top tier.
We loved the lunch tapas method which allowed us to taste quite a few delicious dishes. We will surely be back later in the year to get a taste of Autumn!
The vegetables were particularly good and the service was exquisite.
A lovely evening ; wonderful fresh flavours ; very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Will be back .
The food and wines are excellent value for money. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable and can cater to different dietary needs without compromising with quality.
I had the seven-course menu and I liked every single one of them. The highlights were the mackerel, the pigeon and the cabbage with tomato reduction and fermented tomato-skin juice. Great attention to cooking, ingredients, presentation and service. Relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful, highly recommended and worthy of repeated visits.
Excellent meal and friendly and relaxed service - exactly how it should be! Cheers
Excellent. Could not fault any aspect of the experience.
The food is delicious. Simple recipes highlighting the taste of the main ingredient of each dish. Good value for money.
Fantastic evening, we had the 7 course menu each plate was delicious. The staff were excellent and the whole experience was spot on.
We were skeptical. We don't usually like prefix menus. If you are looking for great food, an experience to remember...go and enjoy. Highly recommend and will return on our next Scotland trip.
We had a lovely lunch while visiting the Edinburgh Fringe. You chose from a great selection of tasting plates, all were prepared to the highest quality with super (and some slightly unusual) flavour combinations. Service was fantastic with the staff attentive and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately the restaurant was quiet when we were there which meant the atmosphere was a bit flat, however we will definitely be returning to Fhior. Highly recommended.
Excellent service, fabulous food
Starting with the service; we enjoyed the attention of a number of excellent waiting staff and from the kitchen; to chose one would have to be the delightful young woman from Burgos in northern Spain! The food was at times exceptional, at times intriguing and at times sublime and all just the right side of what for me might be considered a bit pretentious. Would heartily recommend and seek to return when next in Edinburgh. Ambience just the right side of being too cool. Our only disappointment the cursory farewell from a male member of staff in the front room; perhaps it was my shorts......
Incredible food, interesting wines, super attentive staff and great service. I'll be back!
friendly service and lovely authentic food with local ingredients.
Cucina interessante, servizio eccellente
What a great place to celebrate. Amazing food, drinks and service.
Fhior was chosen as a destination restaurant to celebrate a milestone birthday celebration and lived up to achieving the excellence it says it is striving for. It would have been too easy to choose a Michelin star option available in Edinburgh; I'm glad I didn't. I find myself having to dig deep to find anything to say that could improve our experience of Fhior…..it truly is something special and will highly recommend to anybody that wants to experience a gastronomic journey of the senses. Of course perfection is not achievable and is also subjective; bearing that in mind the food is a given and the welcome, staff, service also hit the right spot: unpretentious, but "present" and informative to the adventure. The wine pairing took us on a discovery of unusual and interesting surprises; perhaps not always the best pairing (again subjective), but certainly an introduction to new wines, regions and countries that I will now explore further. Having recently moved from London to Edinburgh I found the prices comparable to London equals; but pretty much finding that true of all Edinburgh. The tables were perhaps a bit too close together for this standard of restaurant and prices being paid, and as we went on a Saturday evening the restaurant was practically full and the acoustics sometimes meant that we couldn't hear all the detail that staff went into in their descriptions of the food and wine. A very specific observation is that I chose this restaurant from their website because I could see how comfortable the chefs were with vegetarian creations, but didn't actually highlight vegetarian tasting menus as available without me having to clarify...…..in conclusion: updating the website about this could attract a larger audience faster as my vegetarian partner was overwhelmed by the diversity of combinations and flavours...……….a must try restaurant before it gets even more expensive as it's sure to get it's Michelin star soon (although not sure if this would be hindered by the patrons having to share the bathroom facilities with a separate and independent basement bar)......easily overlooked by us and if I could rate 4.75/5 I would.....thank you Fhior and the team.
