The meal was great - apart from the chef totally ignoring an explicit alert about a severe tomato allergy and serving an inedible dish liberally garnished with tomatoes. Which was ridiculously stupid. That said, it was up to its usual high standards. Just need some basic literacy for the kitchen staff.

One of the most amazing places to eat great fish. It is unbelievable what you can create in such a small kitchen. It is always a pleasure to returning to Fishers.

This was our second visit to Fishers and the experience was just as good as the previous time. The food is fantastic and we really like the setting. We will definitely be back.

My partner and I really enjoyed our dining experience at Fishers. All the food was delicious and all the waiting staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. This was our first night away from home since having twins and you helped us to feel very relaxed and at ease. We live in Broughty Ferry (Dundee) and we wish you would open a restaurant there! But we'll be back again for sure next time we are in Edinburgh. Thanks again. Jen and Craig

We were sitting near the kitchen and, although I loved watching the kitchen activity, the cooking smells were a little strong at times. I thought the service was excellent:, attentive yet never over bearing; It was my first visit to Fishers and I loved the relaxed yet buzzy atmosphere. We visited at lunchtime to celebrate my parents' Diamond Wedding Anniversay as it is my mum's favourite restaurant. My parents have been going for years and have never had a bad experience. I'm looking forward to dining in the evening very soon!

Booked for a group of friends from all over the UK as we were on a golf trip to Edinburgh. I had been before and was not disappointed. Everyone in my party thoroughly enjoyed their meal!

Beautiful fresh fish and nicely presented. Imaginative sides and sauces. Couldn’t detect any prawns in the cod and prawn fritters! And more potato than fish in the fishcake. Great location and lovely service but food was slightly below par

As always the food was excellent - very succulent, well prepared and good combinations. One minor criticism. When it arrived the fresh range juice and lemonade I had ordered was full of ice and lemonade with only a smidgeon of orange juice. Next time I shall remember to ask for fresh orange on its own and no ice! I have deducted one star from what otherwise would be a five star rating.

Our best meal during our 10 days in Scotland - truly excellent and exceptional service. Highly recommended. Try the smoked trout salad.
