Like other reviews here we were very, very pleased with the main dishes. All 3 of us had the fish & chips - easily the best we had in Scotland on our trip. The tartar sauce if the best I've ever tried. Desserts were a bit tired feeling - chocolate fudge cake appeared to be frozen & then microwaved, the... More

Family 4 Lunched at this Restaurant, we all had Haddock and chips , the portions were huge, huge fish and a gigantic mound of chips , good value but just to much to eat. Good waiting staff, just a typical " Fish Supper Restaurant " of a bygone age. The toilets were spotless The downside was the stairs up to... More

Always great service and amazing food. You might think there is nothing like your local chippy, but there is! Chippy doon the lane beats my fav local chippy by miles and its worth a wee run into Glasgow to try for yourself. The service is great, especially from Karen who you can have a good chat with. The food is... More

To get to this restaurant you do have to go down a lane and a dirty disgusting lane full of bins and rubbish. The steps to the restauant are slimey. The food was greasy, table for two people are far to small. The waitress was the only nice thing about the place.

This place came highly recommended so we made the 20 mile round trip to try it. hidden down a lane just off Buchanan street, up two flights of stairs. unfortunately it did not live up to the recommendation, on arrival we were seated promptly by the very pleasant staff, then it went downhill from there, 20 minutes before our order...

That's not misspelt French. This place is at the end of an alley off the main shopping street. It's also up a dodgy looking flight of stairs (however, it is wheelchair accessible) but worth the effort if you like authentic fish & chips. And if you like fish & chips you will probably like mushy peas, which are cooked perfectly... More
