Best fish and chips in town. You can ring ahead with an order and staff will say how long to wait . very busy at teatime so be careful where you park. They also deliver Thurs, Fri and Sat after 5 pm. You won't go hungry as the portions are large!!

We've used this place a few times and it's okay. No major complaints but it can be cold on a blowy day and service was too slow for my liking on the most recent visit. So - 'average' says it all.

As a regular sit-in visitor i have to say that whilst the interior is very basic both the food and the service are very good.

Usual choices for a fast food shop sit-in takeaway. Fish & chips, burgers and wraps. Standard of food is good though. Kids menu good. Service can be a little hit and miss though.

Called in to get a sausage and chip. Only one other customer there. It took half an hour to produce 1 sausage and chip. I commented that I thought half an hour was too long to wait. To which I was greeted with IS IT? I think it is for fast food

The clue is in the title over the door - fish cafe. This place does what it says it does. Probably not in Egon Ronay. It provides a reasonably priced, large portion of fish with good chips, a slice of bread and butter, a bit of salad and mushy peas. Not the best cafe or comparable eating place that I... More

After a visit to Holywood today we stopped to have our lunch here. They seem value for money and even have kids meals which my children got. They forgot to put gravy in one of our kids meals and there was cheese in one of the kids burgers. I have 2 very picky eaters and although we swapped their burgers... More

They do a cracking burger and chip meal drink and the nicest chips in the town by far. The duck is surpassable by far on fish but for good quality chips and chicken fillet burgers you cannot beat the Fish Cafe on price or quality.
