Visited the Allan Water Cafe as a family of four. I have had the occasional take away from here before and it has always been very good. As expected the food in the cafe was no different; perfectly cooked non greasy full of flavour chips and wonderfully firm fish with a crisp batter. I really can't fault it at all! The Cafe makes its own ice cream which is all very good too. We all had the "fish tea": a small fish and chips (which believe me is big enough!), drink and wee dish of ice cream and the total bill for all of us, leaving feeling stuffed and fully satisfied was about £36. We will definitely be back as I would rather spend £36 on lovely grub here, than in a pub.
Another point of note is that they have great extraction over the fryers. I was wearing a wool jumper. I sniffed it the next morning and there was not a hint of chip shop on it. It is a pet hate of mine to stink of fried food so this was a really nice surprise.
One of my kids is 12 and we were swaying whether she would have the small fish and chips or something from the kids menu. I was a little surprised to see that the only fish option on the kids menu was fish fingers (!).
