You really should have complained as one of the owners Franco and Moya are always there. It is too late now as I cannot rectify your complaint as you are not here. Please return and ask for me and we fix all.

Having read about this 'award winning chippy' we decided to drop in as we were passing Balloch. I was looking forward to a great supper. Unfortunately what we got was bland and greasy. The only good thing was the pleasant seating across the road.More

Every time I am in or passing Balloch, I have to make sure that I pop in to Palombos - I am never disappointed by the place, and it's no wonder that they have been going since 1934. Great wee chippy, and a definite recommendation!!
