About The Tailend Restaurant

Edinburgh is home to plenty of plaices – yeah, we went there – serving up fish and chips, so when one of them claims to be the best of the lot, we sit up and take notice. The Tailend Restaurant on Albert Place, at the top of Leith, has won awards in from sources as diverse as The Guardian and TripAdvisor, and a quick glance at their menu shows why: from classic Scottish fish suppers, to Arbroath smokies, king scallops and Fraserburgh langoustine tails. There are few things that get the average Scot into a frenzy like the prospect of a top-quality fish and chip supper, so they can get awful busy down in this corner of Leith, and therefore we heavily recommend that you book a table now.

Three of us went for lunch on Tuesday 1st of March. We all chose from the very varied lunch menu, generous portions of beautifully prepared food enjoyed in nice surroundings and enhanced by attentive service. We all managed to have three courses each for the princely sum of 11.95- incredible value.!! It's worth mentioning the chips- the best I have eaten and attractively served in " Faux Newspaper " within a handled wire basket. Thank you we will be back. David Barrett.

Great wee fish restaurant and take away in Leith. The food hit the spot and was good value. There is a good selection of beers, wines and ciders to compliment the food.
