For more than 20 years this has been one of Edinburgh's primary destinations for seafood, cheek by jowl with Leith Docks. Other esteemed local restaurants have come and gone in that time but Fishers hit a groove, went about its business and quietly expanded – the business now owns the bar-restaurant one door along (The Shore) and has a popular branch in the New Town (Fishers in the City).
With busy layout and varnished wood, the Leith original has the appearance of a well-appointed ship's cabin while the menu offers a dependable list of classics (fishcakes, fish soup, mussels, oysters, seafood platter) as well as à la carte choices like Goan monkfish and king prawn curry with basmati or whole plaice with potatoes, brown shrimp and tarragon butter.
