Tuesday 03 April 2018

There’s something fishy going on in Scotland – and we wouldn’t want it any other way! Yes, we’re talking about smoked salmon, and lucky for you, Edinburgh boasts some of the best. 

Here where to find the tastiest in town:

Something Fishy
16a Broughton Street
New Town, Edinburgh EH1 3RH

For fresh fish with local flair, a visit to this family-run fishmongery is a must. The owner even lists the origin of the fish and whether they are farmed or trawled on the menu. It is a fantastic way to know exactly what you're getting, and a fun way to learn about Scotland’s rich fishing history.

For locally-caught seafood in a lively atmosphere, this Edinburgh eatery doesn’t disappoint. Though you can’t wrong no matter which fish dish you choose, a starter plate of hot and cold smoked salmon is definitely worth a try.

Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill

Located on Newhaven harbour in an old fish market dating back to the 1890s, a visit to this seafood restaurant feels like taking a trip back in time. Serving an à la carte menu filled with fresh and seasonal dishes—plus salmon that’s been smoked over oak shavings from aged whisky casks—there’s something to please even the pickiest palate.
