Fantastic seafood- the Seafood Platter was amazing and good value for the amount of seafood- it made for a memorable evening. My only slight complaint is that the table was quite small for two people- once the Platter came onto the table there wasn’t much room to manoeuvre! Service was a little slow at first but improved as more staff seemed to come on duty - hence the four stars. Overall though I would thoroughly recommended dining here - I will definitely come again when next visiting Edinburgh.

Fabulous lunch and not the Festive Menu. We were a slightly late lunch and accommodated away from the party hats. Not “sold up” or hassled to leave the table which had expanded from 3 to 5. Great experience Thank you

Food was very good, although langoustines were small and when peeled hardly a bite in each. Would avoid this starter, too fiddly and not worth the bother. The sea bass was delicious, would be nice to have had it filleted. But tasted fantastic.

OK – good service and food was pretty good. I would say that it is not as good as it used to be. Not rush back.

This was my fourth visit to Fishers in the City and it didn't disappoint. The staff as ever were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and we will definitely be back in the future. It's fast becoming our 'go to restaurant'.

Very impressed with food, service was a tad below expectations, but disappointed to have a near £30 service charge added to bill - never complained when table was 20 minutes late and no one seemed to want to serve us at the bar whilst we waited. Food makes it but.........

Many thanks for the great food and general ambience and courtesy. Two of the party of 6 were unable to make it, this was treated without fuss.

Food was very good however very little atmosphere in the restaurant this time very poor drinks service having to ask on a number of occasions. Far longer than ever before between courses particularly as I had pre ordered all items. I have done this six times now would not come to fishers again very disappointing. A number of guests commented on service which is very unsatisfactory
