Antico at Orocco Pier, 17 High Street, EH30 9PP, Edinburgh
Orocco Pier is situated on the main street in South Queensferry, offering a waterfront view and a panorama of the Forth Bridge.
We were greeted upon entering the restaurant and welcomed by rich wooden tones. The lighting though dimmed wasnt too dark but intimate and warm. The atmosphere was at once comfortable though posh with the levels of music offering privacy even in the seemingly booked restaurant.
After cocktails we decided to order only mains but were brought fresh bread. I chose the asparagus and wild mushroom ravioli on a bed of wilted spinach with a pecorino, garlic, thyme and cream sauce. My partner decided on the chicken stuffed with basil, gorgonzola and sun dried tomato on red pesto risotto. The ravioli were flavourful and rich but were slightly overpowered by the saltiness of the garlic cream sauce. I found Pauls chicken to be moist and the flavours blended nicely without the gorgonzola overpowering as I thought it might do. Our meals were £11.50 and £13.95 respectively, a price we thought was well worth the experience and taste.
As a treat we booked a room in the hotel for the night. The room was fairly small but comfortable and nicely decorated. It had a balconey that supplied another beautiful view.
In the morning we had the full Scottish breakfast and I opted for the vegetarian option. The vegetarian sausages, as in my previous experiences, were a let down as they were too dry and lacked flavour. The vegetarian haggis however made up for this being quite flavorful. I was most dissapointed with the fruit dumpling which ended up being a slice of fruit cake that was actually fairly hard and contained only sultanas.
Overall I quite enjoyed Orocco Pier especially the atmosphere in the restaurant and the mains and cocktails at dinner.
