Good food. Large portions. Lots of character. If you pass through Helmsdale, I recommend a visit. The fish and chips here are certainly the best in the area. I recommend the Banana split :-)

Everything in the takeaway is freshly cooked. Excellent crispy chips. I wonder if they could change their oil more frequently and the young man serving at the counter could be a little more friendly and smile once I a while but consistent quality.

Quite busy when we arrived and staff seemed pleasant, if a little over stretched. Disappointing to be given a table with a grubby, tea stained paper table cloth as this should have been changed before the table was given out again. Ordered large fish teas. Portions were ludicrously big. We ploughed through as much as we could but each of... More

As we had cycled 80 miles to get to Helmsdale we decided to have the large fish and chips tea, big mistake. What we got was 2 superb fillets of fish, enough chips for 5, buttered bread, to say it was brilliant doesn't serve justice to it. The staff were also absolutely brilliant, I'd have no hesitation going back if... More

This place serves great fish and chips but be warned the portions are huge!!! I ordered A Fish Tea and got served two massive pieces of fish along with a healthy portion iof chips. There is a small portion option and that would have done as even that would have made other places "normal" portions look a bit small. All... More

Could not believe how good the food was. The chips were amazing, not had this good quality for a long time. My wife had a Steak which was also first class. Very quick prompt service did not have to wait long for the meals. Would recommend a visit!

Sutherland is blessed with two of the top fish and chips restaurants in the UK, one being in Golspie, and this one, the La Mirage in Helmsdale. La Mirage not only serves up simply scrumptious fish and chips, it does so in the mist amazing surroundings in this quiet village on the banks of one of the the best salmon... More
