The gentleman that served us was excellent. Italian I think, patient with us as we took a bit to decide and very happy and chatty. Well done! This is our second time here and we will be back. Good service makes a difference

We had lunch at Pizza Express at Ocean Terminal after visited The Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh. We ordered a Pepperoni Romana Style pizza which is thinner and bigger than a classic style pizza to share among 2 adults. As we were sharing the pizza, the waitress served us in 2 plates with 2 slices each which has been sliced up... More

We came for an early evening dinner when there were only a couple of other couples in, and everything started well. Drinks came quickly and starter also reasonably quick. However, the mains took a little longer to come, and this was where the food went downhill a touch. My pizza was perfectly nice, nothing special, but my partner's posh mac... More

Nice cafe by the waters - was such a relief finding this place as all other places along the walkway were closed at 4 in the evening. Service was laidback but friendly. Hot chocolate and profiteroles were extremely refreshing on a cold evening.

It is a Pizza Express - I assume you know what you are going to get. It does not disappoint. In fact this is my favourite Pizza Express in Edinburgh. Nice location by the river and good for eating outside in summer. This is a very good example of the chain.

I've come here with friends quite often. Nice food, nice staff and good selection of drinks. It's not an amazing place, it's nice but just a typical pizza express.

Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh Went for dinner with husband & 8 year old son. Waitress got order wrong, didn't even apologise. She was very rude. I asked pizza with hottest peppers but they put them all on my husbands pizza so mine was tasteless & his was too hot. When we complained they just didn't care. We won't be back ever... More
