Fancy some fish? Got a hankering for haddock? Batty about Seabass? Yelp brings you 10 spots to catch some delicious fish!


2 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh

This "classy up-market restaurant" is devoted to seafood in all its forms. As a result, the staff know their stuff and "are very informative about the dishes," says Nic G, "and the food is first class". She vows to go back and try it again, having fallen in love with the "squid ink risotto with a layer of chilli infused squid".


225A West George Street, Glasgow

If you fancy a winter warmer you should try the show-stopping fish soup. Roz M says "it is nothing short of sensational - with crabmeat and ginger, it has a subtle hint of heat to it".

The Ship on the Shore

24-26 The Shore, Edinburgh

Sharon G is a big fan of the "delicious seafood" at this waterside establishment. "Perfect for drinks in the sun", she recommends the outdoor tables and adds that "their kedgeree is especially nice".


1114 Argyle Street, Finnieston

Catriona M says the food is "simple and effective, like all good things! My boyfriend recommends the scallops - just pan fried with a squeeze of lemon - and the crab, which you can get in half or whole orders."

Kim's Mini Meals

5 Buccleuch Street, Edinburgh

Caz H "left absolutely nothing in the pot" at this Korean food-house, preferring to make the most of her "tofu and seafood soup". Served with spicy kimchi, she was also "enamoured by the purple rice".

Two Fat Ladies

88 Dumbarton Road, West End

Celebrating fish with the "Two fat's fish platter", Devin M also loved the "great service, intimate setting, an all-around win". Why not start with the king prawns in proscuitto ham, butternut squash and parmesan risotto?

The Mussel and Steak Bar

110 West Bow, Edinburgh

"Go!" exhorts Claire C. This place does what it says on the tin, specialising in steaks and mussels and she reckons the "pot of mussels with white wine and garlic sauce does the job perfectly".

The Fish People Café

350 Scotland Street, Glasgow

Jason B recommends the fish stew - "heaped on the plate with perfectly cooked chunks of white fish, salmon, cockles, mussels and prawns and served with croutons, gruyere and saffron mayo.  The missus had a fantastic haddock and chips - incredibly light batter, almost like tempura!"


1 Shore, Edinburgh

This "cosy and welcoming" restaurant is home to some rather delicious seafood, according to Carolann P, who reckons "you certainly get what you pay for in this fine establishment". She was particularly delighted with her "monkfish for main... amazing!".

Old Salty's

1126 Argyle Street, Finnieston

This new Finnieston takeaway/restaurant has a "varied enough menu that you don't need to be a fish and chips guy (but it helps)". Unusual offerings include scallops cooked with onion and curry powder, as well as chicken schnitzel.
