We’ve been coming to the Shore for over 30 years when we want to treat ourselves. A wonderful setting, great food and relaxed but professional service.

Fantastic meal... Probably the best mussels I ever had, the tomato cilantro lime sauce could be a soup, so so delicious… Both fish dishes were wonderful, the sun dry tomato with olive sauce was not too strong on either olive or tomatoes. perfect. we had no room for desert...

We booked very last minute, and very glad we did. Couldn’t fault anything. The added bonus was Jazz being played, all in all a fabulous dining experience

Everything was lovely, just a little quick brining desert menus following finishing our lunch, we might have opted for another drink had this not been the case. But if that's all you have to worry about! A couple of more prawns would have been nice with the surf and turfx

The Shore came highly recommended, and now we know why. The restaurant proved worthy of commendation on account of its delicious food, excellent libation offerings, charming and efficient staff, and warm inviting atmosphere. Simply world class. Thank you. P.S. The Jazz combo was TERRIFIC!

We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary at The Shore: in a place and way that could not have been matched and certainly not beaten. We had a wonderful evening. Great service. Great food (and wine!). John behind the bar was very helpful and clearly in control of things. The jazz was super without becoming the primary focus. Thank you one and all.

Abbiamo cenato in questo ristorante appena arrivati dall'ITALIA la prima nostra sera in Edimburgo. Abbiamo preso il FISH OF THE DAY ed era un ottimo piatto con un pesce di qualità e delle ottime verdure di contorno. L'atmosfera del ristorante è ottima e la cameriera è molto veloce. La posizione se si ha la fortuna che non piove è molto bella. Consiogliato per una sera ad EDIMBURGO.

Everyone perfect, except front room on RHS when you come in was quite cold. Also bathrooms very cold and small.

Lovely location and friendly service, but, unfortunately, we both found our meal disappointing and over-priced. The fish of the day - sea bass - was heavily over-cooked and the fish and chips lacked anything to distinguish it from much cheaper alternatives.

It was all great, which is shame as all I’ve been telling people is that it was £1 more to add a tiny amount of mushy peas to the fish-n-chips!!!
