“A great place to eat with kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

It is just a fish and chip shop, with a seating area nearby, but the fish is good, and our son really loves it. Enough said.

“Awesome Haggis Supper”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Stopped in here for a quick bite before heading south after a skiing trip.
Four of us sat inside and had fish or haggis suppers. All were generously portioned and cooked perfectly.
The only reason I didn't give five stars was because they charged for sauce. A big pet hate of mine.

“It's OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

We were holidaying in Aviemore and decided to try out Smiffy's after reading the good reviews here. It's just a standard chip shop I felt, everything was just OK I didn't think the service or food was particularly good, or bad.

When giving our order there was no "Hi there what can I get you" with a smile, just a blank glazed expression, is it really that hard to ask your customers what you want? When giving my order there was no feedback that my order was in the system just a ticket stuck on the unit then moving on to the next customer. I know it's only a chip shop but at least as the customer what they want then say it'll be 10 minutes or thanks for your order please wait.

It is expensive for what you get and it is nothing special over any other chip shop.
