We had a fantastic 3-course set lunch with house wine. The service and food were excellent. We can’t wait to return.

We ate late afternoon so numbers in restaurant were low. As we were leaving the restaurant was getting busier and the atmosphere was picking up too. We’ll be back again soon.

Another excellent meal at Fishers, great staff, atmosphere with fish cooked to perfection. Our delicious meal was a lovely way to finish a wonderful Scottish holiday. We look forward to returning to Fishers when we are next in Edinburgh. Thanks you for great evening.

We had a fabulous evening at Fishers in the City. Many thanks to the staff for their friendliness and enthusiasm, particularly in accommodating my friend's somewhat unusual request (with the byo trout!) Will definitely be back for more amazing seafood and great atmosphere.

We were accommodated at the last minute which was very good. Food was tasty except some of the duck was really tough but we were not charged for it as a result. A regular haunt on our trips to Edinburgh just don’t take your eye off the ball.

Tables are pretty closely packed, which means ambient sound can vary between pleasant buzz (as on last visit) and definitely noisy, when as Is often the case the restaurant is busy. Tables for two are tight on space during service. Food is reliably good, and service pleasant.... overall an enjoyable experience.

Lovely restaurant but felt the curry on the lunchtime menu wasn't as good as previous visits, and I think the price has increased! Still good value. Some waiting staff friendly than others.

You came highly recommended and yet exceeded our expectations at every level. We are from the USA and hope to get back someday. Thank you for a wonderful evening. We even paid to take a cab each way because it was raining—rather than find something closer. Thank you

I take the big seafoods hot dish. The seafoods were too much cooked. Too much oil on the plate. Without any taste. I don't recommend it. This restaurant don't know how to prepare seafood correctly.

The food and the restaurant are good but the service is quite forgetful. E.G. wine had to be ordered 3 times. Also kitchen had run out of chorizo early on a Saturday evening for one of its special dishes! Don't put on the menu if you don't have it.
