Tried this restaurant for lunch for the first time. The quality and presentation of the dishes are excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate. The portions are not huge but certainly adequate for lunch and were overall good value. The ambience and service were also very good. Would definitely come back.

A small restaurant, built onto the side of a multi storey car park! An unlikely setting for good fish perhaps but don't let that put you off! We visited at lunch time last Tuesday, the restaurant wasn't busy so service was good (I should add, even if busy the service is still good). There is a set menu as well... More

Tremendous service from the moment of opening the door to leaving. Wonderful food taking great ingredients and taking them to a new level. Superb ambience. My husband and I have decided that this has to become a once a month treat.

Visited here today for about the forth time this year, I think the food was lovely, however we were too cold to enjoy the meal. I had to put my coat on as the place was cold and every time the door opened we got a cold blast, I have never, every sat in a restaurant before with my coat... More

Dear JBerry06, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I sincerely apologise if your experience was dampened by the cold weather. We are aware that when the temperature is extremely low for such a small restaurant, with a main door which opens into the restaurant floor this can cause an issue for our customers. We have taken...

Had lunch at the Fish People Café before the start of the Glasgow Sub Crawl and I have say it was extremely nice. As you would expect by the name, the restaurant mainly serves fish, and they do it beautifully. if you book on 5pm.com you get a two course meal with a glass of wine for around £15.00. Hidden...

From the moment we entered we were delighted with the service, efficiency and professionalism of this restaurant. And that was before we even tasted the food which was delicious, beautifully served and a culinary delight. My favourite Northern Ireland restaurant is Harry's Shack, my English top choice is The Old Bakery, Lincoln and until now I didn't have a top... More
