“Great food, large portions, clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is probable one of the nicest fish and chip shops in Belfast. The portions are large and the food is beautiful. Not soggy at all like some chip shops are. The fish is lovely and crisp as is the pasties etc. it is also very clean and well organised. You order and pay when you go in and you see given a number so you know when your order is complete. If you want good take away food then this is the place to go

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Have gotten out of the take away a few times and absolutely raved about it best fish and chips I've had. We decided to give the sit in a go last night and were both really disappointed in our meals, both had cod suppers no were near to the quality we've had from the take away, portions smaller and we found the fish to be bland and the batter oily not nice and crisp like it usually is, chips seemed different (not in a good way) to what I remember. The service was fine and the cafe is quite nicely done but I'm afraid we won't be rushing back. Pricey for below average food was really disappointed as usually we love it

“Super fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This is possibly the best fish and chip shop in Belfast. The large Cod is a massive meal and chicken goujons and pepper sause also recommend ed.

“Possibly the best chippy in Belfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Blessed to have this as a local chippy.

This is often our stop on the way home from a game at Ravenhill especially on a cold Friday night on the prom!

It may be a tad more expensive than other fish and chips but sometimes you do pay for quality and with Cafe Fish I am happy to do so.

Portions are always plentiful and the staff are always friendly and happy to see everyone from the locals to new arrivals.

“Big but not Beautiful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We have tried this chip and fish shop twice. First time was not good but everyone can have an off day. Second experience no better. Smells greasy outside, chips were greasy with unpleasant aftertaste and fish batter was not crisp although the fish inside was. We have eaten quite a few good fish and chips, but not here. However the helpings are huge so for those who think big is beautiful, they will not be disappointed
