Saturday early evening, did not have a booking but thought we will chance it anyway, Four adults, 4 of the very best burgers ever, try soon you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back but will book a table next time.

great staff, cool jazz, a fish and meat menu. Could have done with maybe a couple more fish options but what we had, the mussels and the bouillabaisse was brilliantly executed. a great place to come relax, unwind and enjoy.

The Shore is a charming old pub on the Waters of Leith and near the centre of this former rough port that has now been seriously gentrified and is very much on the tourist map. Sitting in the bar and enjoying a pint of Pentland...More

To put it mildly, our evening at the Shore did not get off to a very good start. Having a drink at the bar while waiting for my son and his partner to arrive, I casually asked the barman/server whether they were full up this...More

So glad we found this lovely place our first night in Edinburgh. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. I had a salmon dish and my wife had the bouillabaisse- both were perfect. Nice wine selection too and delicious desserts.

The Shore sits in a row of seafood restaurants directly opposite a canal leading to Leith's docks. It is owned by Fisher's which has another restaurant next door. With the exception of the Wishart extravaganza featuring tasting menus for those with money to burn, all...More

We've eaten here a few times, but it seems to have really upped its game - best meal yet. I prefer eating in the bar area - great for people watching and very cosy. Staff very friendly, and nice to see the place so popular....More

A Lovely welcome by John set the scene for a really enjoyable early evening meal. Much more than the average pub meal and a great wine list. Our choices which included oystres weren't a budget option but we were happy to push the boat out...More

Of course, all RESTAURANTS welcome small well behaved animals into their dining rooms. Well, so long as they are registered service dogs... #wow

Situated on the Leith waterfront, The Shore is the ideal destination for those wishing to spend an evening in Edinburgh���s historic port. Boats line the harbourside where the sun sets slowly on hot summer nights, making The Shore a quiet and idyllic location: perfect for a relaxing evening and an intimate meal. The ambience is warm and charming, enhanced by the traditional and candlelit d��cor of informal 18th century wood panelling, huge mirrors and real fires. The cuisine fuses classic British dishes with a modern European twist; we love the pecan-crusted fillet of ostrich, served with blue cheese dauphinoise potatoes and green beans. After dinner, head to the bar, where live entertainment is provided most evenings by local jazz and folk musicians.
