Have visited this restaurant on many occasions and have enjoyed it every time. The food is delicious and Gabi the owner is the most welcoming, courteous person we have met. Nothing is ever too much trouble and even cooks for customers that have specific dietary requirements. What a fab lady! Would not hesitate in recommending anyone to eat there. Good... More

A picture says a thousand words, you don't get a scoop of chips with a piece of fish. They hand pick you four out.

This is truly an excellent cafe and well worth the trip across town. I've even meet folk who drive from the suburbs of north Belfast, so I know I'm not alone in loving the traditional chippy.

It's now a must visit place for my tea while working in N.Ireland. The restaurant is brilliant. The standard never drops and nor does the hospitality. Gabi is a great host and loves to come and chat. Which is great when your working away. A clear winner and well recommended.

The fish quality goes up and down, from beautiful to Ok at worst. The chips seem to be on the smaller size but still very tasty. I always try to get the lunch time special that finished at 2.30 I think. The staff are always friendly, just wish their was one on my doorstep and not over two miles away.

Called into the cafe for tea. It was the first time I had been there. I was very impressed with the stylish decor and the 5* rating for cleanliness on the door. We were greeted by a very friendly male employee who made us feel very welcome. I had the haddock and chips with garlic mayo. It was simply delicious... More

I am not a big eater of deep fat fried food, the last time I seem to recall was a visit here almost 6 months ago. My lunchtime companion does,however enjoy good fish and chips,so we made a return visit. First impressions always are important and the sit in outlet ( which we paid the visit to ), sets a... More
