Decided to take a trip down memory lane to view the various restaurants and pubs had a quick glass of wine in one on the shore but we found the prices very high so quickly moved on. Walked a short distance to Henderson Street and had the best Hot Dog I have ever tasted served in a Gluten free bun served with onions. I chose a yummie pink sauce and a few chips (French fries) meant to eat only a few but they were so good I ate the lot dipped into my sauce will definitely be going back for more of the same. A good selection of wines all affordable and a really smashing Prosecco.

What a fantastic place! Posh hot dogs and delicious open sandwich selection ,with some tasty side dishes! Great selection of beers to go with your meal! We went to the flying dog after checking out trip advisor for somewhere to eat with our boys! Greeted by viv who explained a few menu options and was friendly and kind! Really delicious meal followed by scrumptious puddings! Excellent value for good fresh food! If you are in Edinburgh , check this gem out! You won't be disappointed!!

Posh hotdogs washed down with a well thought out selection of beers! What's not to love!
I'll never look at a cinema hot dog again after eating here.
The hot dogs come with a zillion choices of toppings and comes wrapped in an awesome bun from the delicious Manna House Bakery.
The setting was well thought out and quirky with a hostess who could not be more attentive. When my husband said he liked spicy food she went to the kitchen and came back with a bottle of hot sauce she'd brought back from America. Nice friendly personal touch you don't often find in Edinburgh!

Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime and was surprised that the place was fairly busy. The gourmet hotdogs were very good, with generous toppings. Had chips on the side, and was surprised by the portion size (more than generous). Service was second to none. A welcome addition to an area of Leith sadly lacking in good food places. We'll definitely be back and will be telling friends to go along and try some dogs too!

This lovely little bar in leith called The Flying Dog, and surprisingly enough, specialising in hot dogs and Scandinavian open sandwiches, is a run by a hostess with the mostest. The atmosphere is relaxed and wine bar style. And doggies are very welcome. House larger is the Flying Dog... Give it a whirl. Healthy options available.
