More about The Fish People Cafe, Glasgow

There’s something fishy happening on Scotland Street in Kinning Park… On Glasgow’s Southside, right next to the Shields Road Subway station lies The Fish People Cafe, a veritable temple to the treasures of the ocean. The Fish People Cafe in Glasgow serves up seafood of all stripes, and in a way that puts the usual Glasgow fish supper to shame. They tip their tam o’shanters to Scottish traditions, of course, with Cullen skink, Cumbrae rock oysters and salmon from Loch Fyne, but by and large theirs is a menu that takes in all and sundry from the sea.

Their crab linguine is a favourite down at The Fish People Cafe on Scotland Road, and it certainly comes with a kick – coriander, lime and chilli – and their sea bass is served up Indian-style in Tandoori spices with curry oil and basmati rice. The foodies of Glasgow are drawn to the south side of the Clyde to Kinning Park for the fish – though don’t worry, there are vegetarian and meat dishes as well – and they’re coming in their droves, so make sure you book a table at The Fish People Cafe in Glasgow in advance.

Excellent food & excellent service - not a huge venue however we visited on a Saturday afternoon & it was great. Staff friendly but not intrusive in any way - really excellent & will definitely be returning.

Fantastic seafood restaurant! Great menu, plates beautifully presented, good choice of wines. Plenty of attentive, friendly staff. Situated right next to Shields Rd subway. Will be back again soon.

Very attentive staff, comfortable interior, easily accessible, great specials board - and tasty food as usual. A small, cosy and intimate setting but doesn't ever feel crowded.

A warm welcome awaited as we arrived. The service was attentive yet not overwhelming. The food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Already planning our next visit.

The Fish People Cafe is my favourite restaurant in Glasgow, by far. It's elegant and comfortable, like a wee sanctuary for good food lovers. The service is attentive without being imposing, I can't rate the serving staff highly enough. And for the food- fresh, flavoursome, clever cooking. Whole tandooried sea bass! An impressive dish, such delicate fish spiced to perfection. Crab linguine! Luxurious to eat, with chilli or without to suit your own preference. This place makes me forget the outside world and reminds me to just be.

This was our first visit to The Fish People Cafe, but it won't be our last. As expected it's all about fish and seafood, but there was a good choice of dishes, alll very tempting. Everything we chose was truly delicious, simply on a different level from other restaurants. This will become a favourite for future evenings out.

Quite limited menu, but enough choice. Food served piping hot and was delicious. Staff attentive. Thought portions (mussels for starter and stone bass for main) were quite small. The mussels could also have been served with some bread to soak up the sauce. Stone bass again lovely but served with a few asparagus spears a slice of black pudding and some tiny drops of piped decoration looked pretty but didn't satisfy my appetite and would have benefitted from being served with some potato/pasta/polenta or rice, without having to order extra chips. My partner's starter - prawn cocktail was standard fare. She enjoyed her crab linguine and found the portion adequate, although there didn't seem to be much crab in it.

A two pal review. Intimate restaurant, although a bit 'out the way'. Food was very nice, but being two pals that like their food, portion size was on the small side. No bread to accompany our order of mussels which we found rather odd. Quite pricey but worth the visit. We ordered coffee at the end of the meal and when it was brought to the table we were told they needed the table as next customers were in. Which of course is fine, but tell us before we order coffee! Or at least at the start of meal when the next reservation is due. Felt rushed to drink up and get out. Would still go back, food was delicious.

Service was friendly and efficient. The meal was delicious. Mum and husband had peppered mackerel Caesar salad to start. I had light, fluffy chicken liver pate. Main courses - fish and chips for Dougie and I - moist fish, flawless crispy batter. Lovely home made tartare sauce. Desserts - Rice pudding, ginger and rhubarb - all of my Mum's favourite things and it was Mother's Day. For me - honeycomb ice cream and bitter dark chocolate sauce. The coffee here is fabulous too. Wine list reasonably priced - superb Albariño. Will be back soon!

We had a fantastic meal at The Fish People Cafe. Staff were friendly, food was out of this world and there was a good choice of wine available. This was our first visit but it definitely won't be our last.
