Our Story

Located in the heart of Ballater, Fish Shop restaurant and adjoining fishmonger celebrates the heritage and traditions of fishing in Scotland serving ethically sourced fish from day and short-trip boats, as well as creel-caught and hand-dived crustacea.

Our modern and relaxed 40-cover restaurant has a menu focused on shellfish and day boat fish, with the addition of select game, meat and vegetables from surrounding farms and estates.

Drinks include biodynamic and low carbon footprint wines chosen from British and European vineyards with spirits and beers from micro-breweries and distilleries within Scotland.

Until the end of March, the restaurant is open for lunch Thursday – Sunday and dinner Wednesday – Sunday. From April we will also open for lunch on Wednesday and dinner on Tuesday.

Fishmongers

Our fishmongers offer seafood from the same boats and providers as the restaurant, with a seasonal selection of fish and shellfish arriving early each morning. A range of seaweeds, preserved seafood, Scottish Blackthorn Seasalt, other store cupboard essentials and daily deliveries of seasonal vegetables can also be found alongside a selection of wine and freshly prepared fish dishes for local delivery, or collection in-store.

Sustainability

Working with carefully selected fishermen, partners, growers and makers, we supply sustainably-sourced fish from day and short-trip boats, as well as creel-caught and hand-dived crustacea. All meat is free-range and locally sourced.

The restaurant and fishmonger are committed to being low-waste from fit-out to packaging; even smoking techniques use zero-emission charcoal.

Fish Shop is a proud supporter of the Ocean Recovery Project.
