Ok, I admit it is an airport bar. I had the Celebration of Scottish seafood Great smoked salmon and gravad lax. The rest is ok. A bit expensive at 23.95 even for an airport. I had a large glass of Chablis that was ok, but not quite a steal at 13.95. I would expect it to be colder and a... More

People usually don't give reviews on airport restaurant as they are usually overpriced and let's be honest, who's got the money to fly all the time. I have been lucky to be able to use the Edinburgh airport regularly and would like to take some time to review this small seafood bar. This is a seafood bar providing luxury shellfish... More

Good service and good food was my first experience at Thermidors seafood bar. Ideal if you want a nice light bite before boarding your flight. Personally would prefer to be a bit away from the constant flow of passenger traffic.

Following a delayed flight, my wife and I spent a good couple of hours sitting at this bar enjoying the wine and some light food. The staff were very friendly and provided us with great service. They made it an enjoyable delay for a change.

My wife and I ended up at Dublin airport without dinner and with a delayed flight. A look around the dining spots was not inspiring, and a seafood bar would not have been my first choice because I'm not allowed to eat raw seafood for medical reasons. But Thermidors worked out great. The waitresses were attentive and very nice, even... More

Despite being in an airport, and therefore people will be on the move, I suffered such snail pace service I eventually had to leave without receiving my salmon and toast breakfast at all. Thermidors is a personal favourite and I always make a detour for their kiln roast or traditional smoked salmon - with a dash of something sparkly -... More

My wife and I have a sort of tradition to eat in Thermidors every time we fly from Edinburgh. OK, so my favourite deli has the same smoked Salmon and the same oatcakes at a fraction of the price. £25 quid per head for a few slices of smoked fish and a large glass of wine may seem a bit... More

This island eating place in the middle of a main route through the airport sells itself as being high end but fails to live up to its own publicity. The seafood is average and not exactly good value. Only two staff on when I visited - one serving and one preparing the meals so things were slow. Going for style... More

Decided on the seafood bar while waiting for our Bristol flight after ruling out the other eateries. We love seafood and champagne and were not disappointed . We had the champagne taster selection of three small glasses which went perfectly with the smoked salmon platter. A bit pricey but better than a greasy burger.
