There is something reassuring about a seafood restaurant with the address "Number One The Shore", and you will not be disappointed by Fisher Bistro's unpretentious enthusiasm about seafood. The decor is simple - bare wooden tables are set with paper napkins - but you're not here to admire the fancy trappings. If you haven't got the idea from the address then the menu will leave you in no doubt about the ethos of the place: there is almost nothing but seafood on it. Even the wine list doesn't get in the way, being small but competent. Although last orders is around 10pm, make sure you get there about 9pm - any later and it will probably be full. For weekend dining, it's essential to book - they recommend calling two weeks in advance!
It is a lazy chef that has his starters prepared waiting in the fridge. This practice is becoming more and more common and frankly should be outlawed. If I am to get a stone cold dish as a starter I want it to say so on the menu. Seared tuna to me suggests that it comes hot.
Service was ok and staff were friendly but the food let the entire experience down big time. There was a time when this restaurant was thought to be the best in Leith. They had better look closely at their laurels.
In response to the potato throwing review, as helpful as it was as a restaurant review, I think you'll find that it was actually chefs from the restaurant next door participating in the vegetable Olympics. I too was there on that day.
As for Fishers, it provides an excellent, unusual and delicious variety of Fish and meat dishes to suit everyone in a relaxed environment with efficient and attentive staff. I strongly suggest you try it.
