“Fish and seafood heaven” – a Finnieston fixture since 2009, this bustling joint with a very ‘street’ attitude is “not to be beaten” for spanking-fresh crustacea and well turned-out fish at “amazing” prices for such quality. Perch at the bar, or book/hustle for a table in the small interior.

It’s “very crowded”, but there’s no knocking the “consistently fabulous fish and seafood” (which comes at “amazing” prices) at this idiosyncratic Finnieston fixture. You eat either counter-style at the front, or at a “closely-packed table” in one of the many nooks at the back or in the small upstairs section.

This “whacky little space” in Finnieston with lots of nooks and crannies, and also perches to eat up at the counter, “consistently delivers fantastic, super-fresh fish and seafood, cooked and served with real passion”. Now in its tenth anniversary year, its legion of fans “absolutely love it” but be warned: it gets “really busy”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
