“Clean, friendly and freshly cooked”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We arrived at Pitlochry around lunchtime and needed to give our grandchildren (2 years old) something to eat. We saw The Plaice To Be and decided chips and pizza would be a rare treat. The chips were freshly and well cooked (fluffy inside), well drained and the pizza was done in the Scottish fashion - a quick dip in the frier! Service was quite fast and very pleasant. This fish shop apparently gets most of its fish from two Peterhead boats that fish sustainably.

“The best fish and chips ever!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The crispest driest chips and the best cooked fish I have ever eaten in a fish and chip shop and indeed the chips were likely to be the best I have ever eaten outside my own house.

I do not know how the proprietor does it but he deserves the credit for a great product.

Great quick food, smart service and a very fair price. Brillaint!

“Shocking”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Worst customer service ever. The little glaswegian behind the counter should not be working in a customer focused role. Food sub-standard. Prices unrealistic. He does gluten free batter big woop! Doesnt do mozarella. Guy needs to lay off the jail tattoos and get a life.
