Fresh seasonal fish served simply.

Café Fish was opened in 2009 by a prodigy of Marco Pierre White. Publicity like that did no harm when they first opened their doors, but it is their great reputation for food that has sustained and ensured a loyal following. Young, smiley staff, excellent value and well-produced food make it worth the trip off the beaten track to find.

Food and drink

Crab, clams, creel-caught langoustine and diver scallops are among the items to tempt your palate and, at £10 for a two-course lunch, you'll have some money left over for their delicious house Sauvignon Blanc.

Ambience

Café Fish is in a traditional Edinburgh high-ceilinged room complete with original rotating door, but the stainless steel bar, walls stripped back to the brickwork and fittings give it a surprisingly modern twist.

Service

Informal, friendly.

Location

On a corner site in Leith, just a few hundred yards from the waterfront. Not the most salubrious area, but worth it for the experience. 

Price advice

The offers on their website change and the menu changes daily. Main courses average at £10 and starters at £5.
