Lovely little fish restaurant in the heart of Belfast city. The atmosphere was really great, the fish was amazing and the staff super friendly.

Excellent food. Service initially was okay as the restaurant was quite busy but then was amazing when Stacey took over as our server! She was lovely and also hilarious - truly one of the best we’ve had in a while! Food was lovely and atmosphere...was grand. Overall one of the best meals of our trip!More

just wanted a bowl of mussels. made the mistake of not checking menu price, just ordered. virtually double of the price being charged by other best restaurants for the same dish in belfast. Some of the mussels were lukewarm at best the glass of prosecco...was also the most expensive i have been charged anywhere in the city. Total rip off My bill would have been substantially lower in Mourne Seafood Bar or Darcys Never to return or recommendMore

Plenty of choice with lots of fresh fish. Service was very good. I had the talbot which was one the specials board and it was very good. Quite busy and I would recommend booking.

We decided to visit because of the 'Award Winning' fish & chips supposedly on offer. Unfortunately, we were extremely disappointed. The fish was average and the portion size very small. For £19 you expect a decent sized piece of fish and a few more chips....Not in any way special. Service was lukewarm too, we were not even asked how our meal was. Will not be back.More

We ordered scampi and chips which arrived suspiciously quickly. I think the food was sitting out already cooked as it wasn't hot and had begun to have a greasy texture. The only vegetable offering was a spoonful of oily salad leaves. I have most certainly...tasted better chips and scampi. Really this is just a fish and chip cafe and not a particularly good one.More

Had a fantastic night!! Had Strangford mussels for the first time for starters and now all mussels I try will have to match up to them. Our server Toni-Lee was great and really made the night. Award winning fish and chips definitely deserves their award!!
