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.
Another great experience, the food was faultless- absolutely delicious and beautifully presented - while the service was the perfect. Thank you for helping to make our evening a memorable one.
The "mission" is genuinely interesting and executed to perfection - it feels like a Michelin star in-waiting. Staff very knowledgeable and attentive. Only minor complaint is lack of affordable wines (under £30), although the limited choice was still delicious. Would definitely recommend as an antidote to a heavy red meat fix!
I look forward to returning for dinner on 29th February (already booked).
We really appreciated the thought, time and effort that went into creating the flavours and delicious food we enjoyed st Fhior.
The staff were all very helpful and kind and very knowledgeable on the food and wine. We had a wonderful evening at Fhior. Would reccomend to anyway.
Amazing and loved the sommelier
Absolutely brilliant independent restaurant
This place was one of the best fine-dining experiences I have ever had. Outstanding food, outstanding service, and great place to eat overall.
Myself and boyfriend we really enjoyed it !! And definitely recommend to friends !! But your payment system cause feeling uncomfortable since my boyfriend & myself presented at least 5 cards all rejected in present of other tables !!! As a matter of fact my boyfriend used the same card in different place 30 mins later that evening and no issues !! And of course you deducted the bill next day ..... advice may be you better change your Payment system !!
Amazing meal. One of the best I've had in recent memory
The best restaurant in Scotland.
I cannot recommend Fhior highly enough. We had the four course tasting menu with paired wines and it was exceptional. Every course was a true delight and the wines were all perfectly matched. The service is friendly, attentive and informative. This is a gem of a place and the next time we're in Edinburgh we will definintely be returning for the six course menu!
A delightful lunch in a beautiful environment. Food was delicious and innovative. The staff were passionate and knowledgeable about the food. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves food.
Enjoyable, especially the vegetarian dishes
Utterly fantastic meal in everyway. Staff were brilliant and all very knowledgeable about the dishes. Recommending this to all my friends
Booked for work's Christmas dinner. Outstanding service, food was excellent. Highly reccommend. Such a fantastic restaurant with a delicious fresh menu. Catered to all dietary needs.
Front of house staff were tremendous - giving us a very warm welcome and goodbye. The somm exuded passion and we could’ve spoke to him for hours about all the bottles he brought out for us. The chefs and the food they presented were simply fantastic - the arbroath smokey/roasted carrot combination was a real stand out. The music too was fantastic - perfect choice and the goldilocks sound level finally achieved! Will most certainly be returning, hope to see you soon!
We visited Fhior after reading some fantastic reviews. We were not disappointed. The service was fantastic from the moment we walked in. Each course was well explained and paired with fantastic wines. One of the nicest chicken dishes we have tried and that was very unexpected. This did not disappoint and although on the higher end for Edinburgh, it was certainly worth it. The ingredients were local and fresh- something you can't find in so many places in London and it makes a huge difference. The deserts weren't quite to my.liking having a very sweet tooth however I know my partner enjoyed them. Congratulations on bringing some fantastic cookery to Edinburgh! I look forward to coming again
We had an amazing time at Fhior, great service, lovely food, just a great night out!
This restaurant is fine dining at its best. The food is inspiring and the wine to accompany the 7 course taster menu is perfect. This is not the cheapest restaurant in Edinburgh, but it is well worth splashing out on this place if you want to experience some unbelievable flavour combinations. You will not be disappointed.
As ever, a remarkable experience. We all had a fantastic time and the team were quite brilliant. Each dish was a quiet triumph of skill, judgement and connoisseurship of ingredients and technique. The wines were masterful selections, introduced as always with boundless expertise and charm - and the negroni was a revelation. Thank you.
Did enjoy most of the courses but felt the red wine did not match the chicken dish the rest worked well. Also the additional course was £10 but thought it would have included the matched wine but we were charged another £10 for that which was rather steep for a 2in square of pork belly. Thought more could have been said as to why the wine was paired we seemed to have an explanation of what the food was then what the wine was but no link to why it was paired. .
Delicious food and excellent service, can’t recommend it highly enough!
