The Clam Shell is an Old Town inst•tution. Its excellent for a quick bite if you are young, a tourist or just a fan of deep fried fish and chips :) They also do a mars bar supper which if you haven't tried then you will probably live a longer but less chocolatey life than I. The manager is a friendly and welcoming chap, the staff are always efficient and have a smile on their face and its a refreshing change from some of the customer service you get in these type of places. Considering the amount of tourists on the Royal Mile it is not bad value. They are always open when I think of them which is one of the reasons for their 5 stars. Along with all the normal Scottish chippy offerings such as blackpudding, half pizza, smoked sausages etc they also do kebabs, hot dogs, burgers and more. They also sell a small selection of alcohol which is a nice option when time is running low to make it to an off licence. Usually I'll pick up a couple of half pizza suppers and there is still change in a tenner. Not bad for a traditional chippy in the middle of the Royal Mile.

Just had a fried mars there, I liked it :-) I will come back, they are funny! We took a few pictures and they were posing for us, while frying a mars :D Yes we're a bit crazy for a mars ^^

Quite overpriced (for a chippy), but go given its location, I suppose one can slightly be forgiven. Had to wait a wee while for my families order, but again I suppose it as uber freshly cooked. Nice, but check out the prices before you order. Saying that, would probably still go back.

As much as I try to avoid the royal mile at times, I can't help but to bring all my friends to this fantastic chippy. The curry sauce is hands down the best I've had in Edinburgh. So make sure to have the chips & curry during your next city outing!
