Fishers Bistro Review

Locals and visitors flock to this laid-back pub-cum-bistro down on the waterfront, and to its sister restaurant, Fishers in the City, at 58 Thistle Street in the New Town. The menu is the same, but Fishers Leith has the better reputation and vibe. Bar meals are served, although for more comfort and elegance sit in the cozy, blue-walled dining room. Seafood is the specialty—the Loch Fyne oysters and queenie scallops from Tarbert are wonderful. Watch for the daily specials: perhaps a seafood or vegetarian soup followed by huge North African prawns. It's wise to reserve ahead.
