Was there last week for business lunch, we reserved a table, which was just as well, as it's a small place. Food was great, clearly most go for fish. Service was good and the place has a great look. The batter on the haddock was sublime!

4 starters, 4 mains, 3 cheeseboards, 2 beers, 2 bottles of gavi, 3 dessert wines, 3 coffees & 3 drambuies all for £40 per head! We had 3 different starters and 3 different mains all of which were delicious. The cheeseboards were slightly disappointing in that there were only 2 cheeses both quite similar. Good range of beers and well... More

Saturday evening meal with friends. This is a quirky little fish restaurant in an off beat area. The menu is small but adventurous. The food is terrific and well presented. Decor is basic but is acceptable and property is clean. There is a nice ambience. The whole is spoiled a little by the inexperience of the staff. I could only... More

This cafe seems less busy than it ought to be. Enjoyed my first solo lunch there a few months ago and brought my partner for a late lunch on this second visit. He got the daily fish and chips special--a great option and one of the best he's had (their tartar sauce deserves a special mention) and I was able... More

Mrs here writing review… We walked from across the river and when we saw the sign for “The Fish People” – uh oh – that looks like a takeaway, a closer look and it looks like a fish mongers. Damn, are we in the right place? Yes! Tucked away right across the carpark in the shadow of the huge parking... More

The food was great and so was the service. I would recommend the fish stew and the crab starter. They both tasted very clean and flavourful. Good atmosphere although it was Saturday night it was quite quiet at around 5:30. I would certainly recommend a visit.

Amazingly, while in New York we read about The Fish People Cafe as a "must visit" venue in Glasgow. It fully lives up to the specification! Unsurprisingly, the clientele was a mix of local gastronomes and some American visitors. We'll be back!

It was a lovely evening and the kids were away so we popped out for something to eat. We had heard about The Fish People Cafe but had never been. It was a lovely small restaurant with a great menu and lots to choose from. I think it was the fact it was a very warm evening that reminded me... More
