The Simeone family opened their first Glasgow cafe in Yoker in 1901, according to their website. With a rich family history in the fish and chip trade, they opened Mario’s Plaice on Byres Road in 2008, which became Simeone’s in 2020.

Jonathan Clough, director at Smith and Clough, told the Glasgow Times: "I am delighted to have been instructed to sell the leasehold interest in Simeone’s fish and chip restaurant and takeaway, I am expecting strong interest in the sale. 

"The business is extremely well established and enjoys a fantastic trading position on Byres Road, enjoying a loyal and regular clientele from the many local residents and businesses, shoppers and high volumes of students.

"The premises were completely refurbished and refitted in July 2020 at a cost of circa £250,000 to create a 48-cover restaurant and separate takeaway, which a new owner will benefit from, and the sale really does offer a tremendous business opportunity."
