Lovely fish and chip shop!! I had breaded haddock and chips, was delicious. Went back the next evening and had the macaroni cheese, which was also nice, but preferred the haddock and chips. Also got a bottle of Appletise!

Situated on the Lerwick harbour the view is very interesting. The restaurant shares the building with the museum and has nice touches of the seaside, although the interior is a bit sparsely decorated. The food was of very good quality and service was very pleasant.
