The food, the service, made a memorable afternoon before lockdown. Thoroughly enjoyed the variety of food on offer, will highly recommend to others and will be back
Great service and food was amazing -our new favourite place .
Great! Be back as soon as possible. Better than some pricier seafood places in Edinburgh
Fantastic meal for my partners birthday. Food was superb, nicely paced. Really good service.
Amazing food,service and value. We will be returning again in the near future. Highly recommended
Always high standard tasty food. Unfortunately ran out of a key staple on the menu early in the evening. Service a little slow but not sure if things are more challenging with restrictions. But as always friendly service and quality food and drink
Beautiful venue. Presents really well. Bistro in style.
Staff highly personable, friendly, accommodative and helpful.
Wonderful Scottish accents also lends itself to a great authentic experience too. : )
Food was presented brilliantly and in a timely manner. while staff helped us with our Oyster selection. Presentation of Oysters on all measures was really very good. Highly recommend.
Went with my husband for my birthday and had the best time ever!! The sea good platter is just amazing and the crab fries are brilliant to. Will definitely be back to do the oyster challenge as I promised lol..Overall a beautiful restaurant with amazing food and service was excellent
Every way perfect. We loved the whole experience and would definitely book to go again next time we are in Edinburgh.
Food was incredible, myself and my wife had just the best dinner here! Loved the ambiance about the place including background music....tribe called quest etc.. :-) definitely be back, especially for the octopus
Food was great.. however the service really poor!!
We sat in the window of the bar area looking out on a wet and windy Edinburgh Old Town but the restaurant was warm and cozy as was the service. Amazing oysters with Muscadet as recommend by our lovely waitress. Chargrilled octopus, tempura prawns, the brie-like cheese and apple pie were all highlights! We will be back, often.
enjoyed every morsal excellent quality and really fresh perfect for lunch.
Amazing food, service and ambient.
If you love yourself ask for the scallops, treat yourself.
Was looking forward to trying this place out, and although the service was excellent, we didn’t feel it was good value. Food was well presented, and scallops were tasty - we ordered a Hot lobster sharing platter, but we were underwhelmed by the size of the lobster, with not much meat.
In short, we had a nice time, the food was average, but we wouldn’t go back.
Good food and friendly staff.
Just felt on this occasion something was missing slightly from previous experience.
Fantastic food fantastic service no wonder this restaurant is in the top ten for service in Edinburgh would definitely recommend this place
My only suggestion would be ensure warm plates for warm dishes.
Everything here is great. From the cocktails and wine to the carefully prepared menu the results are impeccable - good attention to detail, and everything is just as it should be, not just the flagship seafood but also the sides, the garnishes, the presentation and the service. My only tiny disappointment is that the current Covid screens slightly spoil the ambience, but that's hardly their fault.
The food and service were excellent. My mother and I had a lovely evening. Ordered too much but managed to eat it all along with probably too much wine. We had a great evening for our first meal out together in months. Thank you Giuila for making it so special.
Best seafood menu with amazing Asian fusion. Loved it!
Great food, great atmosphere, great service!
We started our night across the road in Monteiths for drinks where we were welcomed without a table booking, cocktails made to order not from the drinks menu, very good very very good in fact. Watching the food come out made me think if we picked the right place to eat, the presentation was on point. Definitely will be booking there next time in Edinburgh. Drinks at White horse were good. Service was excellent, we started off with oysters fresh and tasty then we had mussels, octopus, steak and oysters, mozzarella salad, straw fries and to finish two lots of scallops. For two people this was more than enough food the plates are small but it is filling. Flavours were excellent and so was the presentation only fault was some of the food was not has hot as it should have been, but it did not spoil the meal
Great service and absolutely delicious food, we ordered more than we probably needed because we wanted to try everything! And it was all outstanding. The cocktails were also delicious - in particular the old fashioned. Will definitely return.
Delicious food, a little bit in the pricey side but about right for the quality of the produce. Excellent service and very careful COVID measures in place so felt reassured.
Fantastic find! Food was amazing, slightly limited but a nice selection of wines and champagnes on offer. Staff were helpful, professional and friendly. Good atmosphere and lovely interiors. Will definitely go back many more times!
Fantastic food and ambience - we visited recently for my husband’s birthday and Guilia and the team couldn’t have been nicer. It was a very special experience - thank you!
Some of the best food I’ve eaten in ages. Lovely people too. Ten out of ten.
Our dinner at White Horse was outstanding. The food was a culinary delight as were the cocktails. The waitresses enthusiasm was lovely to see! We can't wait to come back again next time we visit Edinburgh.
Staff were very welcoming and attentive without being overbearing. The ambience was cosy and our little booth felt very private. The food was excellent, with the tempura prawns and charred octopus maybe taking the favourites place. Can’t wait to go back!
Amazing seafood! Try the oysters and mussels and prawns. The only dish that wasn't at all good is Crab salad .
Lovely food, very attentive staff. We will definitely be coming back here if we're ever back in Edinburgh. Our only gripe would be, that when we booked, we weren't told that we'd only have the table for 90 minutes. Whether this is only during Covid 19 or not i don't know.
Delicious food, fantastic service. Highly recommend
Amazing food, lovely staff, felt it was good value for money on the 50% off deal. Quite expensive if there is no deal on
Excellent as always, we love the buck a shuck. Great value
Great oysters 🦪 selections and very nice seafood dishes! Staff is friendly and amazing bartender with good cocktails! Would be back again soon
Absolutely incredible little restaurant - unbelievable food!
Lovely food and great staff. The crab scotch egg was fantastic as was the bloody mary!
Outstanding produce - cooked by people who genuinely know how.
