I have visited this restaurant a few times now and always found it to be one of the top seafood restaurants in Fife. The access road down to the restaurant isn't for the faint hearted and I didn't fancy it in my new car. The...More

The wife and I are both lovers of seafood so for her birthday we gathered the family for a meal in Aberdour. We really were very disappointed particularly after reading the excellent reviews. The tuna was overdone, the hot starters were lukewarm. They were serving...More

Having heard such raving reviews for this restaurant, we booked a birthday lunch for 4, on an early September Saturday. We approached with a sense of adventure, parking towards the top of the hill and walking down the rough and steep slope. The little hotel...More

Sitting just feet away from and above the waterline of the Firth of Forth, every table has a great view of the water - if only you could arrive by boat! Three of us went for an early dinner (18:30) and were delighted to find...More

It's a wonderful location, a rocky headland looking across the Forth to Edinburgh. The proprietors source most of their supplies locally: great fish, vegetables, bread, meat for the incorrigible carnivore. And with these ingredients they produce excellent and imaginative cooking, served well and without fuss....More

Coming from the west, go through Aberdour and over the railway bridge. Then take the first road on the right and go all the way down to the car park. Take the road to the right of the car park and follow it right down to the... More

Room with A View, Seafood Restaurant situated within the Forth View Hotel in the coastal village Aberdour, Fife. Enjoy succulent scallops, wholesome halibut & Fresh Langoustines and many more delicious seasonal seafood dishes cooked to exquisite perfection. Whilst also enjoying the small but special menu you can enjoy the spectacular views of Edinburgh and the river Forth whilst listening to local Classical Guitar player Nick Rees on the sound system (who also plays live on occasion). Every seat offers a view of Edinburgh or Aberdour Harbour or climbers on the Hawkcraig Cliffs. On a sunny day it is nice to enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the garden area or eat Al fresco
