Amazing service, food was to die for. Popular with locals and visitors alike. Would recommend completely
Best seafood ever and excellent friendly service.
Never been to a fully seafood restaurant before. It did not disappoint. Food absolutely amazing. Every dish beautifully presented and the taste was amazing. Will definitely return
Loved this place. Food is great and so are the drinks and service!
A return of many visits and the food was fabulous as always. Delicately prepared tasty seafood and oysters consumed along with tasty wine. We had a great evening.
Lovely meal , great quality of food and service. Highly recommend.
Lovely restaurant, fantastic food & friendly efficient service, staff couldn’t be more helpful.. All the food was delicious.. will definitely be back next time we visit Edinburgh ..
Fantastic food served in a friendly manner with great value
Food was delicious, staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. Would highly recommend!
Expected better cooking. Overcooked rubbery crab scotch egg. Oversalted food. Does not say octopus is smoked...more like a sausage. Overuse of tarragon in everything. Excellent scallop and tempura prawns but overall disappointing and expensive and thinks it is better than it is
Excellent food served with a smile. Enjoyable atmosphere. Good vale would certainly go again if in Edinburgh
Fab food and service! The satay sauce on the monkfish was sublime!!
Food was fantastic. Still talking about it 12 hours later.
Excellent ambiance - genuinely condusive to an enjoyable evening. Food was good, and the octopus very good. Service out of kilter slightly with everything else - glasses on the table, even placed on top of menu. quite slow, 10 mins for a cocktail I felt was a long time. Table staff perhaps inexperienced - poured my champagne before the lady, and deferred to me (as the man?) throuout the evening eg first menu selection, question on our experience. However I'd have no hesitation in recommending and will return.
Absolute perfection!! We couldn't fault any of it, and that includes the service, which was fantastic.
Whatever chef/chefs/brigade is making the menu and sending the dishes --- it made for an outstanding meal. Every dish was balanced, every bite was something to look forward to. We are first with our eyes, and our mouths were not at all jealous once we had partaken .
Great food, atmosphere & the staff were brilliant.
Wonderful food. Really engaged and caring service. Impeccable timing. Background music a bit loud.
This was an exceptional meal. The food was absolutely delicious, drinks and service perfect. Can’t wait to go again.
Great place for seafood lovers oysters were awesome will be going back soon
5 stars in every way! We will return for sure.
Even though my dining partner got his dates mixed up, I soldiered on and had a lovely meal. The staff were excellent as ever.
We went to the White Horse as a special treat for our honeymoon stay in Edinburgh and my gosh did it deliver!! The staff couldn’t be more welcoming and knowledgeable without it feeling stuffy or too much. The food was out of this world, probably the best meal we’ve ever eaten… and we’ve eaten a lot!!! Can’t recommend more!!
Amazing seafood and couldn’t fault any of the dishes, staff were all excellent
Amazing food- couldn’t choose between all of the small plates so ended up ordering almost all of them to share. Staff very friendly. Would definitely go again.
Lovely Oysters and Prawns in an excellent setting. Well presented and the "happy hour" period we arrived in it was only £1 per oyster. Great value.
We had a very enjoyable lunch. We loved the oysters and appreciated that because of happy house we could order lots of them. We also really liked the teriyaki monk fish and the seaweed butter.
Great seafood place in Royal Mile, Central Edinburgh. Don't miss the oyster happy hour check the website for their timings (£1 each oyster is hard to resist). Very friendly waitress
Wow what can I say. What a fabulous experience this was. There is nothing negative I could say.
It was my Mams 70th when I booked i asked if they had any decorations or anything they could put on the table for arrival as we don’t live in Edinburgh they couldn’t accommodate that but they brought us a specially made cocktail when we arrived!
Food was unreal so so good. Drinks were lovely service was amazing just absolutely fantastic.
Great oyster and seafood restaurant. Nice atmosphere in tastefully designed space. Service was excellent and the food and cocktails were brilliant.
All round fantastic place to be. Quality of food and drink is second to none. Freshest oysters I’ve ever had. Loved the cute window seat too. Given free cocktails due to previous table booking over ran.
The only thing I didn't like was how noisy it seemed was you were seated you couldn't hear the person sitting opposite you. Apart from that the service was very good and the food was fabulous.
I will be going back especially for the monkfish satay (we had to order another) it was so good.
We had the most delicious lunch and service was awesome highly recommend this place can’t wait to go back
V welcoming and knowledgeable staff, lovely relaxed ambiance and amazing food. We started with the oysters which were delicious and beautifully presented and the tomato salad which we both loved. We followed this with the hot sharing platter. The array of flavours was mind blowing, one delicious mouthful after another. The waitress was helpful as it was our first time dissecting and eating a lobster. I finished with the cheese and crackers and my husband with a coffee. This review really doesn’t even begin to do the food justice. It was quite simply the best meal either of us had ever eaten.
Awesome small plates to share. Very cozy atmosphere
Really nice people, trying hard, wanting to please. Oysters were excellent. Small plates were generally disappointing and not great value for the quality. Would visit again, but next time just for the oysters.
Really enjoyed dining at White Horse. Food was tasty and service was great.
Lovely time as always and such efficient and friendly service!
The food was wonderful well prepared fresh ingredients we had oysters to start and hot sea food platter and stawfry’s we have previously had food delivered at home during lockdown and had chunky chips that were not on the menu would have preferred them we will definitely be back to go down the tapas rout as there were meny things we would have to try 😋say a big thank you to all your staff
The food is out of this world!
The staff were all so personable & friendly!
Best restaurant experience we have had in ages!
We can’t wait to return, even thou we do live in South Yorkshire UK, we will 100% be planning our next visit to Edinburgh around our love for this restaurant!
Oysters & Satay Monkfish were our favourite - Delicious!
