FPC has become a Southside fixture. Food, service and prices are unfailingly excellent.The restaurant is associated with the long established adjacent fishmonger. I guess that means it gets the pick of the catch, including some unusual varieties, like stone bass. The basic menu contains perennial favourites (crab linguini, lightly curried Anglesey sea bass). It's the daily specials, though, that make... More

Family meal and everybody enjoyed the food and service. Star of the show was tandoori baked seabass, with credible showings from crab linguine, Cullen Skink and oysters. Great food at a great price. It's a bit out of the way if you are in the town centre, but well worth jumping on the underground which is right next door.

This small restaurant specialising in sea food is on the quiet south side of Glasgow, but very easy to get to being directly opposite the Shields Road subway station and next to a multi storey car park. It is situated on Scotland Street and if you came for lunch it would be well worth calling in at the Scotland Street... More

I love this restaurant and it has quickly become a staple since we moved here. The food is always good and the service is excellent. Recommend the smoked salmon and the fish stew. Passionfruit posset for dessert - not too sweet! The wine list is excellent and it has an excellent gin selection!

Best pre-theatre value in Glasgow! Fantastic food and great service- unbelievably good value . The specials are fantastic but if you're looking for pre-theatre the set menu is fantastic 😊

I have been to this restaurant three times and feel I must write a review to say well done for a fantastic service and the best fish type meals I have had anywhere. The cost of the food abd drinks are very reasonable and the restaurant is in a great position for transport, right next to the Shields Road underground.

Our first time at this restaurant, so went simple with daily special of fish and chips. Excellent fish properly cooked with delicate batter and home made chips, tartare sauce also extremely good. Were only going for one course but decided to do desserts, lemon posset and poached pear, both extremely good and enjoyable. Will certainly be returning to take advantage... More

Very good quality and great value. We had fish chowder which which was delicate, creamy and delious with right amount of fish. Had seared hake, moist inside cooked to perfection as part of three-course pre-mixed meal. We especially loved the dessert- a honey ice cream with rich dark chocolate sauce.
