I am staying at The Dakota for a night on way to visit family and meeting a friend for dinner. Don't want something too formal, or too expensive but would like a view if possible. I looked at Scotts but it appears to only be open for breakfast and lunch. Any ideas ? If not just somewhere pleasant - either that does good fish n chips or Italian perhaps (non meat eaters). Also where are the nicest pubs ? It will be end of may so hopefully everywhere is more or less open, under restrictions so aware will need to book. Thanks in advance.

Orocco may be slightly more expensive than average, but it serves good food and if you insist on a table to the north sie you' can get good sea views over the Forth. Fingers crosed they have re-opened and there are no covid hotspot problems.

If you eat fish then the Boathouse might suit? https://theboathouse.online/our-menus/

Or the Railbridge bistro https://therailbridgebistro.com/

The Hawes Inn is quite casual and homely but no views https://www.vintageinn.co.uk/restaurants/scotland-northern-ireland/thehawesinnsouthqueensferry?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=gmb

Hi, pretty sure Scotts is open for dinner too? Maybe worth phoning as Facebook says call or book on their website.

The website says 9pm and 10pm Fri & Sat for Scotts

It might be saying different at the moment while they're only opening for takeaway.

Ah yes their last booking slot online currently is 4.30. The Boathouse I’m sure will be lovely too.
