Unassuming and understated. The Ship on the Shore is an old pub turned restaurant. It retains many old features and has a relaxed vibe which was perfect for lunch after an evening of fine dining the night before. The Fruits de Mer platter was HUGE! Everything fresh and tasty (although I continue to be underwhelmed by lobster). The oysters were particularly good as was the dressed crab. A crisp and cool bottle of Muscadet finished off a perfect lunch.
Possibly a little tired looking so if you like your restaurants modern and sleek then maybe this isn't for you. Personally I came away chilled and content...a perfect finish to a weekend in Edinburgh!
