This restaurant is a must visit. Top Scottish fare and very attentive staff. Get the mussels! We chose from the menu de jour and struggled to select a starter from the 6 options. The range was diverse and I could happily had all 6. The two main s options were distinctive and suitably tempting. Pudding was just about managed; the... More

This is a lovely wee restaurant serving fabulous food. I was lucky to go there for an early birthday meal and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the evening. The food was amazing, the restaurant is small and intimate and the service was very friendly so I came away feeling very happy!

Having made the mistake of not making a reservation on a Saturday night in busy Edinburgh - on a rugby weekend - it was looking like resorting to a pizza would be the best I could achieve ... but I suddenly thought of the Wee Restaurant in North Queensferry - one of my favourites. They duly obliged with a table... More

I knew this was small and intimate and thought we'd better book and I thought that we had managed to be squeezed in and made way for, so was surprised to find only two tables occupied when we went in and only about five tables occupied when we left, so never more than one quarter full. I cannot understand the... More

Got some vouchers for The Wee Restaurant as a leaving present from my last job in July, so finally got round to going with my other half. I'd been here previously and had a lovely steak so my expectations were quite high from the get go. On the night, we both had the steak, both medium rare and although my... More

We went for a spontaneous lunch between Christmas and New Year and were very impressed with the quality of the food, as well as the friendly, attentive service. The scallop starter was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The sea bass main was unusual, fragrant and perfect as a lunch dish. We noticed that the sweets were vey large so we... More

I feel the previous OMG has been posted spitefully by a coward who has never eaten in the restaurant. Their account of their visit is fiction - made up to try and cause problems - what a coward !!!!! We all pity you - that you should be so pathetic !!!!!

Second time I have had the misfortune to be at this restaurant, the chef should not be allowed any where near a kitchen . I ordered a fillet steak medium and I got a piece of RAW meat with red blood all over my plate, When I complained the chef came out and swore at me , Much nicer restaurants... More

I have requesting that this review gets removed from a TripAdvisor. This is utter lies and complete fantasy and won't be tolerated. Our chefs have never come out front of house and sworn at anyone. We stand by the standards we are known for. More

Decided to go out for the New Year and chose the incredible deal offered by the Wee Restaurant to see the New Year in with a five course meal, coffee and drink of your choice to toast the year ahead. The evening started at 8.45pm ( for everyone) and even though the restaurant was fully booked the service ran like... More
