We were sat in a great table near to the window view of the docks. The waitress who served us was attentive, professional and knowledgeable, excellent in her approach. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and the food was first class.

Great atmosphere, fantastic food and really friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. We all loved it and will return. Only negative (hence 4 stars for otherwise great service) - service was dreadfully, painfully slow on this occasion. NB our satnav took us the wrong direction on Shore which meant a bit of turning round and navigating surrounding streets - maybe factor in a little extra time to get there if using yours.

Very nice meal at The Fishers. Waiting staff were attentive, and apologetic when some delays as was busy. My meal was great: small (not small) mussels, delicious monkfish laksa and affogato. Husband: fish cakes (too salty) duck (a rather oily meal and he didn't really enjoy it) ice cream (I thought the clotted cream one was rather too sweet but still good). I had 2 X Sav Blanc which were not too expensive. Good atmosphere. Views rather soilled by gloomy weather but I imagine lovely on a sunny day. Enjoyable all in all.

I would thoroughly recommend Fishers as the perfect place to have a pre-concert supper. It is only a 10 min walk to Leith Theatre. Book your table for 5.30 and enjoy fresh and smoked fish platter, oysters and much more to follow. Delicious wine too and great service! The perfect start to an evening of music.

Fabulous breakfast and late lunch. Well looked after and good was the best we’ve had in a few years (apart from the home cooking that is). Highly recommended for both food and service.

Main issue that limited our enjoyment was the high levels of noise: understand that you were fairly busy and we may have been unlucky with very loud voices on adjacent tables, but the acoustics reflect all those hard surfaces, no softening with fabrics, and conversation was at times difficult.

Great atmosphere, service and food. One of the best meals we have had in a long time. We enjoyed it so much that we booked Fishers in the City the following night and had an equally enjoyable experience there too. Highly recommended to seafood lovers
