Good freshly cooked food and decent sized portions. Much like a fish and chippy in terms of décor but can be a bit cold in the winter.

Situated just off Buchanan Street at the end of McCormick Lane the restaurant is housed on the first floor of Glasgow’s iconic McCormick Printers building. they are specialists in the art of cooking fresh fish. Ranging from traditional classics such as Cod and Haddock to more contemporary choices such as Monkfish Tail and Coley. All of which have been carefully... More

The food in here is brilliant, however the staff have changed since the last time we were here and aren't nearly as nice and friendly as the last team. We were sat beside the door to the toilet, and every time it was opened I got a chill, which wasn't the best, and along with that the toilets themselves are... More

Love this place. Haddock and chips served in paper box, great portions and really tasty fish. Fritters are well worth trying too. Don't be put off by entrance. It's definitely worth a visit.

Sometimes only chips will do. If this craving takes hold of you, and you just happen to be in Glasgow, this is the place for you! It is literally down the lane, and doesn't look too hopeful, but it is well worth making the effort. Service was friendly. The portions of fish are huge.

Fish and Chips - you can't eat it every day, but if you must, you should eat it here. Its simple and delicious. Of course it isn't Michelin style food, but thats the charm of it. The starters are a bit of a waste of time... good restaurants should stick to what they are good at... and this place is... More
