Honest Fish and Chips

We used this restaurant 3 times, sampling fried fish in a good light batter, scampi in breadcrumbs and scallops in a light batter. All were very good and reasonably priced. We managed to leave room for a sweet on one occasion and the chocolate muffin with chocolate sauce and 2 scoops of ice cream... read more

This was hands down the worst meal we had in our two-week stay. What was Rick Steves thinking when he recommended it? The fish and chips were so heavily battered and fried it was overwhelming, plus the sides were disappointing- peas, plain untoasted white bread with butter, and mediocre chips. My salmon fishcake should have been called a potato cake;... More

We used this restaurant 3 times, sampling fried fish in a good light batter, scampi in breadcrumbs and scallops in a light batter. All were very good and reasonably priced. We managed to leave room for a sweet on one occasion and the chocolate muffin with chocolate sauce and 2 scoops of ice cream filled every spare space.

Every time we went we were told to come back in an hour! Advertised for doing deep fried mars bars (I know they are very unhealthy, but we just wanted to try one!) but I doubt they ever do one, come back in an hour!

We absolutely loved our meal! Traveled around Scotland for two weeks and this was one of our favorites. Decor is not the best but service and food was outstanding. So glad we stopped in for dinner. Food was fresh, restaurant did not have a fishy smell like some of the others.

I definitely wouldn't go back. Good was okay, service was okay but it seems dirty and not we kept inside. For the amount of fish and chips places there are on the strip I would suggest trying another
