“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I've eaten here many times since 2010 (around twice a month on average) and the fish is always at least very good and usually superb. The chips are great too and the portions are brilliant. It's excellent value for money and the service is efficient and friendly. Can't wait to go back!

“No frills, excellent value”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Probably the best fish and chips on the islands. The sit in area is basic , but clean and friendly. There is a wide choice of chip shop type food which is tasty and well cooked.

“The best fish in Lerwick”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

There is a eat in Cafe and a takeaway. The Cafe is a little cramped but the value and portion size is fabulous. Shame you cant get more types of fish. Especially as they are landed across the road. It is very popular so there may be a queue.

“Reliable, fresh fast food”
Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

It's a fish and chip shop, but refreshingly for such a Scottish environment, they don't fry in animal fat. This is good news all round. It's not the best fish and chips I've ever had, but it's decent enough, with a wide range of food, a reasonable environment to sit-in if desired and long opening hours. Run by the same chap who owns the Fort Charlotte Guest House over the road, which is highly recommended if you're after B&B accommodation in Lerwick.
