After hearing all the raves about this place I just had to try it. Very disappointing. Hard dry chips. Hollow fish. Dirty plates and cutlery. Service was ok. Looks good but that Deceives the eye.

We always try to make time for a visit to Longs when we are in Belfast as it is without doubt one of the best fish and chips shops in the country. The service is fast and friendly and the food is superb. It is not on any of the main streets but this just adds to its charm as... More

All freshly prepared food in a very clean and superbly run restaurant. The fish is outstanding as are the freshly cut chips. The kids enjoyed the battered sausages and pasties too. Great and super efficient staff. Best fish & chips around, try it !
