The guide states that: “The world is not just your oyster, in 2019 it’s a smorgasbord of delicious discovery.”

Our team has been working hard since we opened in May and it’s great to see that our food and restaurant have been recognised in this way.”

“It’s fantastic for us to be able to share the very best Scottish seafood at The Fishmarket with customers from nearby and further afield. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone for their continued support since we opened our doors earlier this year, ” added Gary Welch, Co-Director of The Fishmarket.
