Seadogs is a member of the Dogs group of restos in Edinburgh that claim to offer high quality food at reasonable prices (and in my experience, the claim is mostly true). As the name implies, Seadogs offers a selection of fishy dishes – we went for lunch and all were a reasonable price. Fish and chips is a speciality and they offer different types of fish.  I have been trying to eat more sustainable fish recently and so had coley (pollock) which is a bit like cod but less over-fished. It was fried in oatmeal (choice of beer batter, oatmeal or plain) and was really very nice.

Some people have complained in reviews about the portion size here but, for lunch, I thought it was just fine. My daughter had cullen skink (a smoked fish soup) and it was rather a small bowl – certainly not enough on its own (she supplemented it with rather good Isle of Mull cheddar).

Like the other Dogs restos, the decor is functional rather than elegant but for a very reasonably priced lunch, it’s pretty good. About £10 each including soft drinks and coffees.
