Purchased a takeaway of fish and chips for family, based on previous reviews. What a disappointment! Batter had consistency of a wet sponge and chips were soggy too. The greasy aftertaste in the mouth was another reason to rate this poorly. If this is one...More

This place is okay, definitely not the best fish and chips we have ever had but certainly not the worst. You can always tell the best chip shops from all the rest by asking one simple question, do they cook to order? IE when you...More

As the title says, the best fish and chips in town, without a doubt! I'm reliably assured that other food is available, which is equally delicious, but I can never see past the fish supper, its just so delicious. Go try it, you'll agree 100%

Me and my colleagues sometime need to work close to L'Alba D'Oro, and this is our number 1 choice to get some food on those occasions - we have been in twice in the last week. The food is always very nice, with nice sized...More

My husband ordered a fish supper on Saturday night and when it was delivered it was cold. The chips were also scraps and certainly not worth the £11. He phoned to complain and was told that they "weren't bothered". Not good customer service at all!!

Best Fish and Chips for miles. Always go out of my way for a visit here. 5 out of 5 stars isn't really enough!

I must say as a resident of Edinburgh all my life, this chip shop is up there with the best. I also travel through to Fife and experience famous places like the Anstruther chippy and L'Alba D'Oro is just as good, if not better! The...More

We tried some chippies here and there, but this one is just amazing. We dropped in by chance thanks to an advice by the round the corner bar tender. We had plain fish and chips. An amazing experience! Filippo the owner is very kind and...More

I popped in on the way home from training, and attracted by the aroma, tried the smoked sausage. In contrast to the dreadful things in other shops, this is a meaty bratwurst style sausage with lots of flavour. Excellent chips too. Ignore the negative reviews,...More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
