We had passed this restaurant earlier in the day and it was very busy. We decided to eat here in the evening and we were not disappointed! We chose the cod and chips, the helpings were plentiful and both the fish and chips were delightful. The location of the restaurant in the market square allows a great view of the... More

I've been to this restaurant a couple of times and really enjoyed the fish . I order haddock with salad and my husband orders chips with his fish. The salad is enormous and so is the fish very tasty - I would recommend to anyone . The place is modern and very clean - well worth a visit .

While I didn't try the chips, the fish (cod) was truly excellent. It was a immense piece of fish with excellent flavor and perfectly fried. The shop is absolutely darling.

You can either take away or eat in, which is great. We decided to eat in on a sunny day. The service was quite quick, we had cod with chips and one with salad. Fish was lovely, quite large, nice chips and crispy salad. I think this was the best battered fish I ever had, I would definitely recommend this... More

Visited this fish resturant when it was under different owners, I wasn't impressed so I was delighted after going back. The fish& chips were cooked to perfection (batter on fish was light &crispy as it should be ) the staff were very polite and friendly and the resturant was spotless.

The best , freshest fish you could wish for, great service and spotlessly clean. Their take away service in Gilesgate is also fantastic.

As long standing fairly regular customers of Bell's takeaway in Gilesgate, I have to say we were really disappointed at the meal we got in the Market Square Restaurant today. We were about to order full portions but the waitress advised us that you get a really good fish and less chips in the Senior Citizens meal so we plumped... More
