“Where to eat before your flight.”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

Located in the Departure lounge of Edinburgh Airport, this is the best value for money food in Edinburgh Airport.
The Seafood bar does not open until 11 are and hot food not available until around midday. Having said that we cleared security just after 11 am and found the service friendly and prompt at the circular bar with comfortable high bar stools. We went for the Smoked Salmon with a glass of Chenin Blanc deal followed by three seafood shots with crayfish tails, crab and prawns.
The seafood was excellent, especially the smoked salmon on the open sandwiches and portions very good for the prices charged.
In terms of value for money and quality of food as well as friendly service (from Anna, a charming young Eastern European woman), this is the place to go for pre-flight food. Forget the other chain food outlets selling overpriced coffee and not very good food.

“Better than the other airport eateries”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Not cheap, but a great deal better than any of the other places to eat in the after-security departure lounge at Edinburgh Airport. Bar stools around a central food preparation area; the menu focuses on smoked salmon, shellfish, etc. I used to eat at "The Gathering" before taking a flight, but no longer (following a change in the menu making it no better than Weatherspoons). I tried Thermidors and would be very happy to go back.
