Skippers review Rate it

A pioneer of the Leith dining scene, Skippers opened back in 1979, when the surrounding area was very different. For more than three decades, it's served simple seafood - fishcakes, moules marinière, oysters with shallot vinegar, whole grilled lemon sole - in an accessible bistro style. A change of ownership in 2008 didn't alter the approach too much; the set lunch (two courses for £11.95) remains popular.
