There are a few different settings in Orocco pier.. My recommendation would be to dine in the bar for lunch during the day however for dinner done in the restaurant..

The views from both are unbelievable.. The forth bridges make for a spectacular backdrop.

The dining room in the restaurant is romantic with dimmed lighting and sexy music! We had a large party therefore were seated at a round table - a nice touch which made it more personable..

Service was above average.. One of the girls seemed new but was always more than happy to help.

The food was outstanding! I had the vegetable haggis to start and venison as a main.. 10/10 for the food.

Final tip - there are nice two seater booths which would be great for a romantic dinner!

Will definitely be back!!

We've visited a few times and have never been disappointed.

The food is always lovely, everything is always well-cooked and the presentation immaculate.

Also, the cocktail menu is rather exciting, I'd recommend sampling a few if you visit.

Staff-wise, they are polite and efficient, but not overbearing.

All in all, I would highly recommend trying here - even if just for the scenic views!

We booked New Year package, could not fault our entire stay. Champagne, fresh fruit and chocolates on arrival. Room very spacious and very very clean. Attended the black tie bash, excellent night and food great. The food throughout our stay was excellent and again could not fault it. The thing that stood out most was the staff, everyone of the staff members were very friendly, very attentive and nothing was a problem. They always had a smile on their faces. We will defiantly be booking again. Thanks Orocco Pier for a fantastic 2 days.

Room Tip: Room 15, fantastic views over the Forth.

I absolutely love staying at Orocco Pier~from the moment you arrive you are made to feel special.I booked a last minute stay and ended up in one of the newly furbished rooms.It was clean,spacious and the bed was massive!
We had something to eat in the bar restaurant~it was fresh and affordable.Staff are cheery and chatty.Can't wait to go back again!

Had heard good things about this place, so had high hopes. It was ok, but no better,

Went for food with colleagues and it was average. Service was poor and had to chase things up several times - slow drinks, slow clearing the table. There was also a terrible stench coming in, as the smokers were congregating on the deck outside and a door or window were open, giving us the full strength nicotine experience - lovely!

Good view, no doubt about that onto the river. Drinks were expensive, but probably no more so than other places. After our meal we went to a few other pubs in south queensferry and then came back in here - to the bar, which was quite busy and in fairness had some character. I wouldn't hurry back to the place, as there is a lot of competition and better places to go.

We visited Orocco Pier recently and although the service was excellent, I found the food wasn't as good as expected for the price. I had coconut and pineapple curry with chicken dumplings and although the curry itself was lovely, the dumplings tasted shop bought and had a weird texture.
The cheesecake also tasted shop bought. Very disappointing. Would perhaps give it another try but won't be in the near future.
