Nice café underneath the guns of Fort Charlotte, slightly hidden so not visible from the road, but it's there!

There is a café attached to a takeaway which is perfect to sit in and scoff whatever food you choose. The menu is broad, I had haggis and chips and my wife had haddock, both were really nice, service was good and fairly quick, and we left happy.

This tiny café attached to a fish & chip shop was a real find. Service was excellent and the food was very tasty (portions HUGE). Prices very reasonable. I had battered white pudding and chips, and a battered pineapple ring for just over a fiver.

Not gourmet, but real hearty Scottish food of the people. Will definitely go back if we are in Lerwick again.

I have been to this cafe on a previous trip and was looking forward to eating in this cafe since I booked my trip to Shetland. It did not disappoint, the fish and chips were amazing. It is a small cafe but clean and well run. It's a cash only place so remember to bring your purse /wallet with you

Maybe the best fish and chips I have had. A small cafe that is easy to miss if you are not careful. No beer and cash only. Small dining area.

Forget Frankie's that won best in Britain: I've eaten at both and fish and chips here are better. It's not not as plush as Frankie's, in fact nothing more than a shack - and room is limited so either get there early or be prepared to wait for a table. Beautifully cooked food, superb crispy batter on the fish, very friendly and efficient service and good value for money.
