About Fishers in the City
At Fishers in the City our ethos is simple; honest food, great service and a relaxed dining atmosphere. Set in an old converted warehouse on Thistle Street, the contemporary surroundings offer the perfect venue for any occasion from a Hot Shellfish Platter to a bowl of mussels on the run. Daily specials, set lunch/ pre-theatre menu and our extensive wine list complement our fresh, seasonal menus.The a la carte menu is available all day, everyday, and of course our Fishers Favourites menu has our guests coming back time and time again.
Friendly helpful staff, cosy atmosphere. Really enjoyed a relaxing and delicious lunch
You're very good in fish, shellfish plates and chocolate tart. The purity/simplicity and quality of your dishes are exactly as we like them. The cutlery to break the lobster (and small bowl with lemon to wash the hands) wasn't brought to us any earlier than 1/2way of the dinner., however the chef did the pre-work so initially no issue. Just a tiny bit more eye for detail on those elements. So far my favourite fish restaurant in edinburgh due to good quality of seafood!
Nice meal and service
Quite a favourite with my friends and me.
The food was generally good but not excellent. To give but one example of a detail that could and should be easily rectified, the bread put on the table as we sat -thanks- included both white a dark. The former had a soft crust and tasteless, doughy filling. The dark was better, but one of the two slices we were served was the crust end of the loaf (hence, mostly crust). Lack of attention to detail! Service was also uneven - some waiters were excellent (attentive, cordial, communicative), but a few were not, bordering rude. The local itself is attractive, and the same goes for table settings. Portions were fairly large (on things like mussels, or sides like fries, but of course, not on per unit dishes like langoustinos or mussels). Among the dishes we tried, the tempura oysters and cold salmon sampler were our favorites.
Food was lovely as always and Gluten Free options available.
A brilliant meal! Great atmosphere and service!! Will definitely be back :)

Excellent food and service
Was very pleased to not be seated in an out-of-the way area as a single diner (happens too often)! Service and food were excellent, I would definitely return and will recommend to others!
A delicious lunch at Fishers. I hadn’t been for a while so wasn’t sure if it had changed, but there is still lots of choice for everyone, the quality of produce is excellent and the set menu is great value. We had a lovely afternoon. Thankyou.
Had a lovely lunch but the restaurant was a bit chilly. Fabulous service.
Fixed price lunch menu was excellent value in conjunction with a wide ranging wine list which included some affordable gems
Food was fantastic, hope to be back soon
Lovely food and great service! Thank you
It got a bit noisy later on but otherwise great service and superb food.
Great service and lovely food
We arrived early expecting to have a pre-meal drink at the bar but this was not an option at this location. We had to leave and return. Staff were quite good but the food was average. We expected more from the seafood platter but it was pretty bland. Lots of tables have been squeezed into the room which is understandable but it makes you feel slightly crowded. Overall, it was ok but we were expecting more.
The food was incredible and the service just as lovely. The staff was so friendly and generally on the ball. This is now our favorite seafood restaurant by far in the city, so delicious. We all had the seafood platter and were very impressed!
