When I come to Belfast on holiday I always make a point of eating here. The fish and chips are definitely the best . I have never been disappointed.

I think the best thing was the mussels. Some of the mains felt overpriced for what seemed more like bistro type fair. The prawn tacos were basic and lacked presentation for paying over £16 without a side.

We ordered a couple of starters to share between four, and mains. The mains arrived first, as our server made an error, but we accepted the apology and just ate our meals as they came. The cod was very nice, thin crispy batter and well cooked, as were the chips. One of us ordered scampi which we were sure had said on the menu came with home cooked chips. When it arrived there were no chips and when we asked we were told the dish didn’t come with any chips. So we ordered a separate extra portion of chips. At a cost of £4. We paid the bill and left the restaurant, out of curiosity I looked at the menu on the way out and the scampi was indeed described as coming with chips. The other confusing thing about the scampi was that they were actually battered king prawns, not langoustine tails - but that may be what they call scampi in NI.

£21.95 for the smallest piece of salmon I have ever been served in a restaurant, the waiter said it’s 175 gram portion. Absolutely disgusted. The squid starter for £10 was equally disappointing.

We booked this place specifically for it’s menu. However when we arrived the menu was limited apparently on Tuesdays and Wed. We only had a night in Belfast so did not have the option of coming another time. I understand there are limitations due to Covid but they really need to spell this out on their website for their guests. The limited menu was very disappointing.

We enjoyed our visit to Fish City, we were efficiently and courteously shown to a good table and served promptly without being rushed. The food was good, well prepared and presented. My only comment is that the choice of fish on the menu was not as wide as I had hoped. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and would certainly return.

I was disappointed with the choice of fish in a fish restaurant, There was a lot of shellfish but not enough variety of other fish and I had to set my starter bag because it wasn’t quite cooked.The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, however overall disappointing

Arrived at this restaurant a bit disappointed to find that the menu advertised online was not the one that we got handed at the table - apparently due to short staffing in the kitchen. Our food was nice but not amazing and slightly overpriced for what we got.
However having said that, we did have a lovely and friendly server but overall I would not be rushing back to this restaurant based on the experience I had.

Booked a table for dinner, party of 3 including an 8 year old. All ordered scampi, chips and mushy peas of the adult menu. No juice of any kind for kids, just cordial. Food arrived quickly although sorry to say mushy peas were the highlight. But for £2.90 for a very small tub, they should be good! Scampi was not scampi. It was battered prawns. Very disappointing. Chips were okay but a bit underdone. Would not be rushing back anytime soon.

The food was delicious, my partner said the salmon was cooked to perfection. I had the fishermans curry and the only slight issue for me was there could have been a bit more fish with the curry but im nit picking its probably because i love the fish so much! Highly recommend

Have eaten here quite a few times with family (3 kids ) and food never disappointed for quality and value.
On this occasion though the portion sizes were on the skimpy side. The house special - cod and chips - tasty as ever but much smaller than before and therefore hardly value at £16.
