“Loving the Fish”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

This was our first meal here since it re-opened last year. I wish we had gone sooner! The food was of the usual high standard but there were a number of noticeable improvements. Firstly, the service was excellent, a young team of waiters and waitresses could not have been more attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The other big difference was the prices, the main courses were all very reasonable, especially considering the standard of food we had, I always used to feel "Fins" was overpriced but not anymore.
It's all about the food here, hats off to the Chef, he sure knows what he's doing with fish, each dish we had was perfect, if you are a fish lover you really have to visit this restaurant and sample some.
We are already looking forward to our next visit (this weekend).

“Couldn't do more”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Went to this amazing restaurant again last night for a belated birthday treat with my 5wee girl friends. The minute they knew it was a birthday treat they came out with banners balloons and sparkles for the table. Food was amazing as always but its the service that makes this place the gem you really can't miss. Love it love it love it.
