Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Third visit to the squat Lobster. Nice warm welcome from the Karen. Lovely fresh fish suppers Cook freshly. Preordered some squat lobsters for later. How fresh just delivered as I was awaiting our fish suppers. Again fish tastes very fresh. Chips lovely crisp on outside. Very soft inside.
Squat lobster is a place you must visit first in Rothesay. Thanks again.

“World Class Fish And Chips - The BEST in the world”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

I make a point of going to the Squat Lobster every time I visit the island. 'Outstanding' according to Telegraph and I agree! I absolutely love the fish and chips and it's a great takeaway for the children too. I highly recommend!

“Great fish and chips!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Great fish and chips. one of us had haddock and chips, the other haddock goujons. Really great tasting and cooked to order. Liked the bit of lemon that it came with; really brought out the taste. Chips were fab! Good value too!

We will be back!
