“Good location”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

I visited here while stopping in a nearby hotel. It offers free parking which is great, and I went to the Pizza Express while there which was perfect. We sat by the window which offers great views and look forward to returning to the ocean terminal again soon.

“OK for some hours visit”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

You can get on a bus from Princes street, but bear in mind that it will take you a while to get there (there are a lot of stops). Prepare around 30 min for the trip.
Don't expect any ocean there actually and don't expect anything spectacular from the Royal Yacht. If you live somewhere by the port, you see much greater ships there )
The mall is not bad, not good - average. I guess you can find a much better shopping in Glasgow or other malls in Edinburg.
We had a nice lunch-dinner at the terrace watching the sea. The prices were reasonable, though for me all restaurants at UK are over priced)
Anyway, worth visiting to get away from the tourists in Edinburg )

“Excellent view, and plenty of nice restaurants.”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Dropped by during a weekend trip to Edinburgh, had an excellent lunch at Pizza Express at a window side table. Great View. We didn't do any shopping here though, like the Gyle it's quite limited compared to Braehead and Silverburn.

“Better to stay in Princes Street.”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Had heard so much about Ocean Terminal and spending the day in Edinburgh last week we decided to go. The 22 bus from Princes Street takes you there in about 30 minutes, but we were disappointed that we had bothered. We had a snack in the cafeteria, which has a good range of hot and cold food at reasonable prices, and that was the best part of the visit as this is a spacious clean facility with outside as well as inside seating, and great views across to Fife. We expected the shopping mall to be similar to Braehead or Silverburn but it did not come close.
Better to stay in Princes Street.
