“Best fish and chips”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Was in Galway today so stopped in for some dinner

€8.50 for hake and chips? excellent value
it was lovely food with loads of tartar sauce attractively presented as a side. Free tomato ketchup too.
I barely finished it, and for me that is unusual!

I also ate there earlier in the summer and had to try it again.

I couldn't understand why it was so quiet on both occasions, especially as the portion size is much bigger than other nearby fish & chip shops and the owner is actually there behind the counter and will have a chat about types of fish, other tasty options (he offered me squid).

They also tend to have funny opening hours, I tried to get lunch in early August but they were still closed at 2pm in the day!

“Great little Fish Cafe in Gort”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This little cafe looks onto the square in Gort, on a nice day you can sit outside where they always have fresh flowers on the tables, service is courteous and quick, everything is cooked to order, no fish or burgers left on a serve over. Good Fish and Chips for €8.

Would highly recommend for a fresh experience with good prices.

“Not great”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Stopped by here (the one in Galway City) with 2 friends for a quick bite after the pub. Have never been before so decided to try it out after some great word of mouth. 3 fish 3 chips 2 bottles of water almost €30 - I don't mind paying if the food is worth it but it was not! The chips were ok, but the fish was awful. The oil must have been filthy as my friends cod was inedible. The batter had chunks of burnt black "stuff" from previous old food in the fryer. My fish was a bit better but very greasy. The waitress did not seem interested. A pretend posh take out that's not worth it.

“Five stars for their Gort shop”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

My wife and I spent a week in Gort, and ate several meals at the Kettle of Fish in the center of town. The curry-cheese chips were our favorite item, but the fish is also top notch, and the cheeseburgers were among the best I've ever eaten from a restaurant. The service was courteous and pretty fast, but everything is cooked to order -- and worth the few minutes' wait!
