An amazing meal! For someone that doesn't like fish that much I had a great meal. Other half loves fish & is desperate to return.

I had been there on recommendation two years ago and returned yesterday after walking the coastal path with my boy friend and my mum. The meal was out of this world delicious, the service totally top of the range, the wine amazing and the views unbeaten. Best restaurant ever!

Had a meal here after it being recommended to me. Glad I had been advised to get picked up at the train station as the access road is rather steep to say the least. Once we arrived the food was certainly worth the journey. The sea food was some of the best we have ever had, service was good with... More

We visited with another couple for a birthday meal. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff very professional and attentive. We will definitely return but maybe in day light hours so we can appreciate the beautiful view! We would reccommend booking ahead to ensure a table is available.

Good quality sea food, beautiful setting and excellent service. Scotch egg starter of quails egg and smoked mackerel was the highlight, packed full of flavour. Main of sea bass then cheeses were ok but not wow factor. Would go back but would try other items looking for more flavour.

If you looking for somewhere off the beaten track then this is the place for you. We stayed over and thoroughly love the place. The rooms are nice, the location is excellent, being very peaceful and quiet, and the food and service is top class. Please dont visit if you're after burger and chips, but do visit if youre looking... More

Room with A View, Seafood Restaurant situated within the Forth View Hotel in the coastal village Aberdour, Fife. Enjoy succulent scallops, wholesome halibut & Fresh Langoustines and many more delicious seasonal seafood dishes cooked to exquisite perfection. Whilst also enjoying the small but special menu you can enjoy the spectacular views of Edinburgh and the river Forth whilst listening to local Classical Guitar player Nick Rees on the sound system (who also plays live on occasion). Every seat offers a view of Edinburgh or Aberdour Harbour or climbers on the Hawkcraig Cliffs. On a sunny day it is nice to enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the garden area or eat Al fresco
