    Beshoff's Restaurant: Beshoff's

    A fish and chip restaurant which seems to be a cross between old world restaurant and fast food. The counter has that fast food burger joint feel but when you go upstairs to the seating area there is a much nicer ambience. Its been around since around 1913 so that has to say something for the quality of the food, for it to have lasted so long.
    We went to their restaurant on O'Connell Street and had a lovely satisfying and relatively cheap meal there. They have a huge range of fish to choose from and apparently its all bought fresh from the docks and offers can change depending on the catches etc They use peanut oil to fry in which is a little bit healthier.

    ETA: Again I returned here in 2015 when visiting with my parents and we weren't disappointed.

    Favorite Dish: I went for the lemon sole and chips which was only €6.20 (2006). I don't generally eat battered fish very often, as I find a lot of batter is a bit soggy and I end up leaving it, but this was really crisp and nice and I ate every last morsel!! The big chunky chips were lovely too. I also ordered a side dish of onion rings and they were huge, definitely enough to share.

  • Beshoff's: Pass on this one

    by expatsaura Written Oct 15, 2011

    While on vacation, we stopped here because of a sign for fish and chips or salad for 8.25, without knowing their reputation. The fish (cod and haddock) was soggy, even without vinegar or sauce. And completely tasteless. We opted for salad instead of chips, but the dressing was also tasteless. Overall bad experience.

    "So... are there any chippers in Dublin where ?
    1) The fish is fresh, glistening and tasty
    2) the batter is thin, crisp and cooked through
    3) the chips are tasty and non-greasy
    4) the food is hot
    If you know a chipper that meets these four parameters I'd love to hear of it. "

    This is what i read in a forum.

    And how does Beshoff cope with these parameters ?

    1. 75 %. Fish taste is OK but there are no herbs used.

    2. 75 %. Not very crispy.

    3. 70 %. They better could have stayed 2 minutes more in the oil.

    4. 100 %. In a kind of restaurant as this the hotness could be the weak point but it isnt !

    The serve fisch (haddock, sole, cod), chips and coleslaw for about 7-9 euro. Dont forget to ask for garlicmayonaise. Sometimes there are special offers for 6 ore 7 euro and / or second (20 cl) wine free.

    The setting is OK; there is space enough between the tables and there are papers to read. The assistence is fast and no one is hurrying you up.

    Favorite Dish: Lemon sole with chips.

    This is not me/we !

    Beshoff's Restaurant: Fish & Chips alternative

    by isolina_it Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Beshoff place is not bad either for fish&chips, but less satisfying after the Leo Burdock experience though there are good places to sit. To me, it also was less oily but maybe less tasty.
    I was in the one on O` Connell street, nice view from the top on the avenue.

    Beshoff's Restaurant: Don't bother

    I wanted to try some fish and chips and this place looked good, but unfortunately I didn't like it too much. It seemed liked dressed up fast food. The fish didn't really have much flavor and the prices were pretty high for what you get. I was told by an American friend to try the curry chips. They weren't bad.

    Favorite Dish: Curry chips
