Traditional Scottish-Italian fish and chip restaurant which also serves great ice cream. I loved the food and service was efficient and friendly. Definitely some of the best fish and chips in Scotland.Bridge of Allan is a nice place to walk around and is convenient for Stirling university. Parking could be awkward at busy periods.

Whenever you tell people you are going near Bridge of Allan they say 'Oh you must visit the Allan Water Cafe'.

Well, you must, but get there early as it gets very busy! It's a bustling cafe with people of all ages at the tables, and fish and chips the absolute dish of choice. Their tartare sauce is home-made and delicious, as is their home-made ice cream.

They do takeaway fish and chips and ice creams too. I had the small fish tea, which was a small haddock and chips, a pot of tea and a lovely dish of vanilla ice, and it was fab. You'd have to be ravenously hungry to finish the Large fish and chips, I saw it delivered to the table next to ours, and it was huge!

Service is efficient and friendly.
