“Lunch visit”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Although we stay here in Balloch and have used the take away (highly recommended) this is the first time we have gone in for a sit in meal.

The have a lunchtime special which includes a pot of tea and bread & butter.

I opted to have the Loch Lomond Monster which is exactly what it is - HUGE.

Food was perfectly cooked and tasty and the restaurant is very pleasant and definitely not a greasy spoon smelly chip shop style cafe.

If down here in Balloch I can recommend giving it a try.

“Local fish and chips”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

After over-indulging on rich food over Xmas, we decided to try out a local takeaway. After seeing the reviews on TA we decided to give Palombos a try. I could not comment on the restaurant/cafe but the takeaway was just that - a takeaway. Nothing special, the staff weren't particularly friendly and the fish and chips were ok - similar to most others I've had.
Generally, Palombos is a good fish and chip shop but no more than that.

“Loch Lomond Monster”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I would recommend the Loch Lomond monster or a chicken supper both very tasty and the best batter I have ever tasted! I have tried the other chip shops in the area but they definitely don't compare to this gem!

Looking forward to my next visit!
