They were popular in the 70s a bit like the racist pish in your post.

You'd have passed 3 chippies then.
I think its the Mermaid at the Fit O the Walk.
There's one opposite McDonald Road.
And there's the Montgomery Fish bar, my favourite out the 3, at the end of Montgomery Street.

Tailend on Leith Walk has shut down I see
Think a combination of changing ownership, some bad PR involving a parent and small child needing the toilet and the resultant facebook ramy and dodgy employment practices *allegedly ended up with it closing.

Eatalias. Guy who's got Vittorias/La Fav dad started out there before getting into italian restaurants. I see they've opened Berties in Victoria Street, Scotland biggest chippy.

It's long gone from its original position opposite the Playhouse.
The Deep Sea is gone?? Noooooooooooooooo - it was my spot on the way home if I was ever up town (rare these days). From their door to mine was about spot on the time it takes to leisurely munch a single fish.

I am talking about the ORIGINAL deep sea and its location.Totally different place to the one that's there now.Maybe some of the more senior bouncers can help me out.

I was in Berties the day it opened. I thought it was pretty decent for the money, even if we'd have paid full price. If you book a table online then there's a discount and there's also the season ticket discount so we got a real bargain.

One thing though. I was the only one of 6 of us that got the large fish, greedy bastard ;-) it looked pretty much the same size as all the others although the lassie assured me it was bigger. Nah we all said lol. Still good and I'll go again.

Are you sure ? The Deap Sea is /was owned by Eddie Ferrie who also owns/owned Ferries restaurant on the corner which was run by Franco Martone for many years .
Franco owns Bar Italia on Lothian Road and Ciao Roma on the bridges. He took on the lease at 9 Shandwick Place from Rock Bottom and turned it into Ciao Napoli . I bought it from from Franco and turned it into Cactus Jack’s ( best Mexican this side of the Rio Grande ) - It’s now the Rat Pack I believe .

I have been in a bit of a pallava about the location of the Deep Sea on a site called Edinburgh Past and Present on facebook before.It got me totally bamboozled.But what i think has happened is;do you know the bit that is being dug up at the moment?Next to Sherlock Holmes?Well what I think used to be there was another stretch of road in front of what is now Union Place?And I think the Deep Sea was on that stretch of the road next to a Laundrette.But i wouldn't be surprised if I'm wrong.
