Sibling of Fishers in Leith, this city-centre outlet opened in 2001 with sharper, 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 & chips. By contrast, the more sophisticated carte could bring grilled mackerel with gooseberry & elderflower chutney to start, followed by plaice meunière with fennel coleslaw, poached egg & 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 & turf (8oz rib-eye steak, crevettes & queenie scallops with chips, garlic & herb butter) or a huge chateaubriand for two with salad, chips & béarnaise. Only vegetarians get a lean deal here.
3 courses £16 from the set lunch & pre-theatre menu.
