Fodor's Review

Hearty eaters adore this long-standing institution, which celebrated 100 years of serving fish-and-chips in 2014. The completely basic Athol Street premises, close to the city center, welcomes garbage collectors, business execs, schoolboys from the nearby Royal Belfast Academical Institution, and patrons from every sector, who flock here for the secret-batter-recipe fish. Served with chips, bread and butter, and a mug of tea, it's the best value in town.
