Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A simple fact you need to know if you wish to dine in Edinburgh - make reservations or you will likely be turned away. Bertie’s has takeaway and was quite good (better than the photo looks). The haddock was perfectly cooked, the breading was good,...and the chips were fresh and piping hot. I think we only waited about ten minutes for takeaway, which is less than they quoted us.More

Wonderful moist fish with crispy batter. Very large portion of fish. The sides of mushy peas and onion rings were exceptional. Excellent service by Natalia.

Had baked fish here and very good but I'd have liked to have the fish skin on it too as old time fish and chips always had the skin on the fish. And fish is much tastier with the skin on and much better for...you too.More

Called in here for our evening meal the place was packed and we were told it’ll be a 20 minute wait for a table for 2. We decided to wait and had a drink at the bar. 15 mins later we were shown to our...table. It was well worth the wait the food was delicious and was served quickly.

We were looking for somewhere to enjoy some lunch near the castle and found Bertie’s. We ate in the restaurant, but there was the option for a take away. Kaz served us - a bubbly and friendly member of staff who seemed to genuinely care...that we were well looked after. Food was amazing- some of the best fish and chips I have had. We had a Bertie’s Frito - a mix of scampi, calamari and fish pieces. And a battered haddock. All beautifully cooked and huge portions!! The mushy peas were really tasty and one order was enough to share between the 2 of us. I would highly recommend eating here!More
