Outstanding!

Its taken us a long time to get round to the Moonfish Cafe but we weren't disappointed. Friendly informed service and excellent food - surely this would be a Michelin starred restaurant if it was in London.............can't wait to go back!

Outstanding. The menu is superb. Changing in a monthly basis, this proves the pride taken in sourcing seasonal ingredients. Value for money. The chefs really know how to treat seafood. I'm a chef to trade myself and I had the honour of dining here. A special thanks to chef Brian and his brigade and also Rebecca and her team. I... More

Fantastic food from the amuse bouche it only got better. I surprised myself by not ordering fish but the pork with black pudding...fabulous! Staff were attentive and friendly and lovely cosy atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Lovely atmosphere in the place, very elegant but relaxed. The food was fantastic. Interesting ingredient all beautifully prepared and presented well. The gin list is a lovely idea, with a great selection of interesting varieties. The staff made us feel very welcome and were attentive without being over-bearing. Great place for a special occasion.

We went to Moon Fish for a celebratory meal but left feeling disappointed and underfed - portion sizes are small. In fact, I doubt if adding all the vegetables together would have amounted to one of my five a day. There was nothing that made us go 'wow, taste this' though most plates did look like a piece of art.... More

A change of menu and it does not disappoint. So far we have only visited for lunch (which needs to be booked to ensure a table) - given the prices I think the value in relation to the quality of food is unbeatable. Limited menu but for a small cafe at a lunch time you cant expect much more really,... More

Was recommended to us by friends and we went along for a family birthday celebration. It was fully booked for the night we asked for so we booked an alternative date, however we got a call later in the day to say they had a cancellation if we were still interested. Excellent service before we even got there! Its a... More

Went for lunch in this city centre restaurant. The food was delicious! Truffle and mushroom soup with bread and scrumptious whipped butter. Succulent smoked haddock with roasted courgette and a lovely blancmange with raspberries and beetroot jelly. Fantastic food! Go there!

Imagine, for one moment, going into a sweetie shop to buy a bar of chocolate. In most shops it costs 60p, but in this one it's £1.20. 'Never mind', you think, 'I'm now committed to my purchase'....and then they give you half a bar. Well, that's the principle by which the owners of the Moonfish ply their trade. After a... More

We've eaten here a couple of times, the most recently in January. Moon Fish is just off Union Street and has a bright and airy environment. The tables are packed in close and I'd strongly recommend asking to reserve a quieter table if you'd prefer it. The service staff are all very polite and attentive and knowledgeable about the food...
