This restaurant is a bit of an institution. We hadn't been in the area for a few years and so decided for old times sake to dine here. Every bit as good as we remembered. The menu was excellent and the food was cooked to...More

We ate here while staying in Lieth and we were very impressed with the food. The choice was good and the food well cooked and excellently presented. Would definitely eat here again if we were in the area

Had considered this restaurant as a staple when visiting Edinburgh. What's happened? Our food just disappointed both in available choices and quality. Unlikely to visit again as their is enormous competition in the area.

Great place to stop off in Leith, or linger longer and take in some of the evening entertainment on offer. A fine selection of food and drinks, something for every palate and very helpful owner and staff.

Of course, all RESTAURANTS welcome small well behaved animals into their dining rooms. Well, so long as they are registered service dogs... #wow

Situated on the Leith waterfront, The Shore is the ideal destination for those wishing to spend an evening in Edinburgh���s historic port. Boats line the harbourside where the sun sets slowly on hot summer nights, making The Shore a quiet and idyllic location: perfect for a relaxing evening and an intimate meal. The ambience is warm and charming, enhanced by the traditional and candlelit d��cor of informal 18th century wood panelling, huge mirrors and real fires. The cuisine fuses classic British dishes with a modern European twist; we love the pecan-crusted fillet of ostrich, served with blue cheese dauphinoise potatoes and green beans. After dinner, head to the bar, where live entertainment is provided most evenings by local jazz and folk musicians.
