fond memories!

from years ago- we used to hop in for a fish supper so good we can still taste it yet, great standing in the queue smelling allthis aromas, still think it must be difficult to park outside esp. at weekends.

Popped in here for fish & chips before heading home. The fish itself was fine but the batter was soggy as it was too thick! Nice chips.

Been here twice and both times the chips were greasy, limp and undercooked. Would be a zero if not for the ice cream. You know a chip shop is bad when they can't even fry a decent chip, pretty basic!

Caberelli's (or known as cabs locally) is a well know chip shop within linlithgow. Prices are very reasonable although the food is not always produced to the highest possible standard, the chips are extremely greasy and often undercooked. But the homemade ice cream is delicious.

We have visited twice over the summer for ice-cream, lovely white, light and fresh ice-cream like we had when we were kids, lots of other ice-cream places in the town but this is the best.

Was staying in a local B & B and as we had all travelled straight from work, arrived and were really hungry. This chippie was right next door, so decision made, some ships would really hit the spot and keep us going until dinner later. We order 2 portions of chips- which cost under £2.50 in total

Bit puzzled why Cabrelli's is listed as a West End Cafe? It's a standard scottish italian chippy and not a cafe. Oh and people are right about the opening hours and closed periods - incredibly frustrating in the height of summer when you want a nice ice cream by the loch! Anyways, i'm afraid to say that Cabrelli's has lost... More

This is not a restaurant, it is a chippie which does excellent home made ice cream, delicious cole slaw and totally average fish and chips. Other contributors have commented about their often inexplicable opening hours and frequent closed periods. This is because the (sometimes quarrelsome) proprietors are Italian and very fond of nipping back to the homeland from time to... More
