Sibling of Fishers in Leith, this city-centre outlet has sharper, more modern decor – albeit still with a nautical theme. The menu format is also the same, with a ‘favourites’ section including the likes of creamy fish soup, fishcakes, steamed mussels, oysters, steak or fish and chips. By contrast, the more sophisticated carte could bring grilled mackerel with gooseberry and elderflower chutney to start, followed by plaice meunière with fennel coleslaw, poached egg and crushed new potatoes, plus homely desserts such as sticky toffee pudding to round things off. There is an economical lunch/pre-theatre menu, while specials may include hot shellfish platters, langoustines, lobster thermidor, surf and turf (8oz rib-eye steak, crevettes and queenie scallops with chips, garlic and herb butter) or a huge chateaubriand for two with salad, chips and béarnaise. Veggies have their own menu.
3 courses £16 from the set lunch & pre-theatre menu.
