Why locals love it

The restaurant is located on cobbled Thistle street, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy high street, but close enough to it to serve as an excellent option for a meal out on a shopping day. The interior is smart, nicely decorated with nautical theme and the place even has an aquarium.

Why you should visit it

Fishers in the City specialises in superior Scottish seafood from oysters, scallops, crabs and lobsters to all kinds of delicious sea fish. They also offer traditional fish and chips, the best with tartare sauce and vinegar. The lunch and pre-theatre set menus are great value for money.

Special tip

Start with Loch Tarbet king scallops, and finish with creme brulee which is possibly the most generous portion served in town. Perfect to share!
