For oyster lovers, the oyster bar at Ondine, in Edinburgh is not to be missed. The Telegraph actually calls Ondine “the best restaurant in Edinburgh“, and also “smart but understated”, which, coincidentally, is also how we like to describe ourselves. Naturally, we needed to visit this place. But first, we worked up an appetite exploring a castle.
Gotta guard the house…
Seriously, wow. We do not have anything like this in Seattle.
Ok, that was fun. Now, time for a white burgundy and some oysters at Ondine’s oyster bar.
You know that we love our oysters. From harvesting them off our beach on the Key Peninsula, to eating them around town in Seattle, we’re seriously into Pacific oysters. So how pleasant to eat these delicious, briny oysters. Officially, it looks like they were all Pacific oysters, grown in the waters of Scotland. How cool!
Here’s what we had:
Loch Fyne Rock
Sir! We like your oysters!
Also, a nice bowl of fish soup served with gruyere and a rouille sauce, and a salad in a bowl. Very nice. Thank you, Ondine, for a lovely Scottish oyster experience.
