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.
Fhior continues to impress. One of the best restaurants in Scotland.
We treated ourselves to a pre Christmas lunch out before lockdown starts again. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the 7 course lunch menu and each dish was beautiful presented and tasted amazing! We really enjoyed it and will definitely go back!
No issues. Great food and setting. Thoroughly recommend. First time in restaurant although tried their ‘at home’ service during lockdown which was equally good.
A lovely balanced lunch of three amuse and four courses - trout, cauliflower, partridge and apple - in a relaxed professional atmosphere. Great value at £35 for really high standard cooking.
This restaurant is all about providing a taste sensation. There is no guessing what the hero of the dish is which I love. The purees are astoundingly smooth and packed with flavor. A great touch is the chunky sourdough bread to mop up all those wonderful juices. This is worth a visit .
Amazing lunch, had the 4 courses and thought it was very very good value. Nice alcohol free options too due to covid restrictions. As always service was great and food certainly one of the best in Edinburgh.
The food was really outstanding. Michelin star quality. We ate at the Kichin recently and the food quality was on a par.
Cannot be faulted. Although only tasting menus may currently be available, the quality and consistency of the food is excellent. Customer service is exemplary and their attention to detail regarding Covid regulations is second to none. We will definitely return very soon
Superb lunch at Fhior - our first visit. Can’t wait to return and try the accompanying wine when the pandemic allows. Delightful staff. So impressed you are staying open currently. Thank you.
Delicious food and friendly knowledgeable staff. We loved the soft drink options too.
Thoroughly enjoyed the lunch. I wish I had gone for the 7 courses. Love the fact that there is no choice and gives you the chance to try different combinations. Great service and explanation of the food. Looking forward to trying it with wine in the not too distant future. Well done for staying open despite the current restrictions.
Excellent innovative locally grown food, although no menu they were happy to do a substitution for one of our party. Short interesting wine and cocktail list. Generally a lovely experience. Felt very safe in these uncertain times.. They deserve a Michelin star
Epic meal - Knowledgable & passionate front of house team smashing it in these difficult times - Shout out to Murray for his wine knowledge!
We really enjoyed all our courses and the staff was so enthousiastic. Compliments overall.
Thank you for a truly excellent meal last night. The food is absolutely exquisite and we thoroughly enjoyed it (again!) All the Covid precautions seem to be working and we feel safe.
All of the food was superb, there wasn't anything we didn't enjoy. Whilst I appreciate it was a tasting menu I still feel that you could have been slightly more generous with your portions. Also, given that the bread was outstanding, it would have been nice to have been offered some more. All of the staff were friendly & knowledgeable & frankly there was nothing about the whole experience to complain about - a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The tasting menu was excellent but took too long to complete. Our reservation was for 8pm and we did not complete the courses until 11.30pm.
Fantastic meal, super team. Can’t wait to go back
Amazing use of locally grown veg
We loved it. Thank you
Probably the most interesting, balanced and delicious multi course tasting menu that I've eaten in the UK. A wonderful variety of vegetables, fish, seafood, game, cheese and desert. The matching wines were without exception excellent and unusual in origin. Not cheap though good value for cooking of this standard.
Thank you for a splendid dinner. Extra thank you for putting the birthday card on our table.
A fantastic 7 course dinner (well, 8 including the excellent special), with really imaginative dishes, particularly the courgette and cucumber. Excellent service from knowledgeable and attentive staff with all social distancing requirements really well dealt with. Wine list isn't daunting with some fabulous options at reasonable prices. We'll be back.
This was our first outing since lockdown restrictions were eased and we're really glad we came! The staff tried very hard to make everyone feel comfortable (despite the masks) and service was friendly and efficient. The food was great! We loved the tasting menu, the fresh, seasonal ingredients and attention to detail. We're very much looking forward to trying the new 10 course tasting menu.
