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.
We loved the playfulness, quality and diversity of the lunch menu. In fact, so much so, that we ate almost the entire menu!
We went to Fhior recently to celebrate a special occasion and the whole experience was excellent! There was a card waiting for us at the table to mark the occasion. We chose the 7 course tasting menu which was absolutely delicious! All the staff were very friendly, making for a great evening!
Food excellent, service pretty good, bit basic in decor ( but not bad ) Let down by the stairs and basement area
Exceptional dining experience. Staff are warm, friendly and professional. They create a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. The food was top quality and utilised some great local ingredients. Would highly recommend.
Last minute booking we didn't expect to get in, but a late table provided an amazing atmosphere and the food was up there with the best who charge 3x the amount for a tasting menu. Also amazing wine journey.
Our first time at fhior and certainly won’t be the last ! Food and service were fantastic and enthusiasm of chefs and staff great. Loved how different chefs delivered the different courses to table and explained about each dish.
We will definitely revisit if/when we return to Edinburgh.
Et fantastisk lunsj måltid!
This is the first time we've had lunch at Fhior. The food was amazing - such a remarkable combination of ingredients producing a beautiful tasting experiences. We liked the idea of providing small plates of high quality food - where you could order as much or as little as you liked depending upon your appetite and/or budget.
A wonderful evening. We feasted on a creative and exquisitely prepared menu with perfectly matched wines (and whisky!)
It was sometimes a little difficult to hear the explanations of each dish from some of your colleagues. Speak more slowly. The background music was, at first, slightly too loud (for the elderly!). Overall however a great evening. Thank you.
All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. We almost went through the menu, sampling approx. 13 of the 17 dishes offered. What a marvellous array of flavours - everything was prepared to a very high standard. Service was excellent, all staff displaying a great knowledge of the food. We concluded that the cost was very reasonable for such high quality. Our only slight niggle was the music which was not to our taste and a little on the loud side, bearing in mind the restaurant was quiet at that time of day. Overall, a great experience - one of our best lunches in a long time. We'd definitely recommend Fhior and return to sample one of the evening taster menus.
We have been fortunate enough to dine at Fhior several times over the summer; enjoying every meal. Even at the height of the Festival on a busy Saturday, the kitchen is sending out exceptional food, served by chefs who really care about each dish. We have been really happy to return and eat some dishes for the second or even a third time. Each plate is beautifully put together using locally-sourced ingredients. It is hard to pick a favourite when even the opening ‘snacks’, which constantly change, are always inventive and delicious. However, the pigeon and duck courses have been outstanding, perfectly cooked with incredible depth of flavour. Service is always warm, calm and unhurried, however busy the dining room. Finally, do not pass up on the in-house baked beremeal bread made with grain from Orkney.
Service, chefs, and somm, were all wonderful, fun, informative, and welcoming. This was a terrific meal.
Lunch offers a great opportunity to try a range of dishes from across the menu, Our favourites were the halibut, the sweetbreads and the croquettes, but everything was fantastic. And as always, wonderful wines and friendly, knowledgeable staff.
I really can't find words to do justice to the food and service. Everything you say about being true, playful and local is definitely matched by reality. We 3 had 9 dishes and they were all wonderful - explosions of flavours and gorgeous textures. Caitlin was the perfect server - delightful, knowledgeable and passionate about the food. Thank-you.
Wonderful cuisine. Excellent service. A great dining experience!
I loved Fhior! Wonderful food, easy going but attentive service and an interesting and unexpected wine list. I will definitely look forward to eating here again when I’m next in Edinburgh.
Beautifully handled! We had a time constraint that the staff seamlessly took on board. Exquisitely food. Can’t wait to go back.
You should be charging more!! It was a delightful experience to eat your food. And your staff is amazing, so warm and excited to share.
Pleasant and unique experience. Edinburgh has many fine restaurants with similar menus and this was something special and memorable, in a little bit of an out-of-the-way spot. Would repeat any time. Make sure you set aside plenty of time if you're doing the larger tasting menu.
Stuart the sommelier is a star!
