Totally loved this cafe. This was our first time in belfast and we both were craving fish and chips. Totally spoiled by the attention of the staff who couldnt be nicer.

Little store on Lisbourn road with great fish and chips. The proportion was great (meal) and the price was reasonable (~7.5£) for this meal with 500ml coke. It seems though not so clean and employees were a bit rude or let's say not smiling at all

Would have to say this is definitely nicest fish and chips i have ever had. Lovely surroundings. Plenty of room. Staff so helpful and friendly. And a plus for me was I could enjoy a nice glass of wine with my meal. Would give this place 10 out of 10. Will be visiting Cafe Fish in the very near future.

Staff very friendly. I am not a great fish eater, so opted for a fish bites supper, and had four really good sizes pieces of fish with excellent crispy batter and lovely fresh chips.
