HISTORY In April 2009 Richard Muir opened his Cafe Fish Restaurant in Edinburgh’s old port, Leith. His philosophy was simple – 100% fresh produce that’s simply cooked, menu’s in line with what the markets were selling on any particular day, complemented with wines matched to the menu structure, and sensibly priced! Well, the theory became reality very quickly and in two years the restaurant had established itself as arguably one of the city’s leading restaurants and with a considerable loyal following of fish lovers! Recommended in many leading eating and city guides including, The Michelin Guide, Scotland the Best, and The List, it had also received some brilliant reviews from leading food critics! In July 2011 the restaurant moved uptown to its new location which has added 30 additional covers and outside seating for another 20.
CAFE FISH is a 70 cover shellfish and seafood restaurant situated in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town and just on the edge of the Stockbridge district. Open five days a week with the emphasis on 100% fresh produce, keeping it simple with efficient, but relaxed service. We offer predominantly Scottish sourced fish and shellfish and offer a day time menu and daily changing dinner menu. Champagne and wine are a big passion of ours too, and you will find a great list of wines and an impressive collection of Bollinger champagne too – so eating and drinking at Cafe Fish is great fun! The restaurant space is in a classic Georgian New Town building and still has an original 1930’s interior which features some stunning art deco. We’ve added our own familiar design and footprint in the shape of a classic Aluminium Oyster bar, distressed steel lighting rafts, and brought the kitchen into the restaurant, so you’ve also got a bit of theatre thrown in too!
