Went here as part of a Trafalgar tour. Maybe because something like 25 of us showed up at once, I was not so impressed with the fish and chips. The fish was crispy-ish, but the breading slid off very easily. The fish itself was very fresh and mild tasting. Chips (fries to the rest of us) were not bad. Peas... More

Best fish and chips not only in Belfast, but the world. Our family came from New Jersey to visit Belfast and no one from the United States should miss the great food at John Long's. A must visit or you haven't been to Belfast.

This was the best fish & Chips in Belfast! Food was fantastic, as was the service! The batter on the fish was thin and light - perfect! Chips were excellent as well. The restaurant is in an out-of-the way area, close to the Europa hotel, but definitely worth the trip!

• Coming from Wisconsin in the USA we have learned the fine appreciation of a good Friday night fish fry. Well let me tell you about John Longs Fish & Chips. We were there tonight for their famous fish and chips dinner. They use the finest quality Haddock fish available. It is harvested with 24 to 48 hours before reaching... More

We asked a very friendly, senior gentleman in downtown Belfast, where we should go for fish & chips. He gave us a couple of options and then when I asked where he would go, he said oh, well, it's a long walk from here. He gave us directions to Johnny Long's, as he called it. He said this place had... More

A usual haunt for me. The staff are attentive and well mannered. I called in for my Fish supper, tea, bread and butter.. John walked out to make sure the diners were happy with their meal. An old golfing foe of mine he sat down to ask me what I thought of the fish (I looked at my near empty... More

Longs is probably one of belfast's hidden gems. Tucked away of the busy bustling Great Victoria Street, Longs is a traditional fish & chip shop offering sit in or takeaway. Fish is fresh daily and chips are great. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Long's is always on my "to-do" list while visiting Belfast. It is a local fish and chip shop that has been around for years. I have no wonder since their fish and chips are the best! It is located just a few short blocks from the Europa Hotel in city centre. The ambiance is very "local" which is what makes... More
