A small, busy and very well loved fish and chip shop in the town with a small cafe area so you can eat in or take away. Excellent fish and chips, always absolutely fresh fish and plenty of it. Pleasant friendly staff. Nowhere better in town for good food and good value.

Nothing fancy just excellent fish and chips and a cuppa. The only problem if you could call it that, is the sitting area is quite small and very often full !

Sunday night is not a big time in Lerwick, but the Fort Cafe has a steady flow of business. Traditional fish and chippie, with the black and white photos of the harbour to prove they have been ther for some time. Eat in or take away. Not licensed. Beware, the full F&C includes 2 huge pieces of fish. We went for the half which was more than adequate. £14 for two, including drinks.

Fantastic fish and chips and everything else you would need, never fails to hit the spot! Competitive prices and fast service with table waiting available if sitting in, on this occasion we got a takeaway. Only constructive comment would be that service with a smile from staff would round off the complete experience! Well done.

It was so good we went back next day for a second visit. We sat in the sit-down part of the cafe. On summer visits we have sat on the harbour seats and tried to avoid feeding seagulls. The service was quick, and the fish and chips were as good as they come.
