We ate there once. Nice ambience and the food was good but a bit pricey. Service was good and the bar was spotless.

Very friendly and courteous staff. Food quality reasonable but could do with a more varied menu. However existing menu is value for money. Restaurant is cafe/bistro style and perhaps not a suitable venue for a special celebration. I understand however that Fishworks is due to be fully refurbished in the very near future and this will include the provision of... More

Having had several meals in this cafe bar before and having enjoyed them this time we were thoroughly disappointed. We had ordered the sea bass and previously the portion of fish had been huge but this time it barely covered the plate. We mentioned to the waitress who said she'd pass our comments onto the chef - but not even... More

Ate here 2 nights on the trot . Lovely grilled hake and mussels the first night and fish cakes and salmon the second night. All were well cooked, fish cakes a bit bland but apart from that I was very pleased with the food, the service and the facility. Pretty decent wines on offer also.

There's limited eating on the Quay at Westport but since we ate here twice I'd have to give it the thumbs up. Fish and chips first night and a great thick succulent sirloin steak the second. Great staff make you feel at home and the Guinness is excellent.

I am quite a devotee of fish and chips and have to say that theirs is one of the best ever. The fishcake starter was also very good. We opted for the 2 course meal with a glass of wine very good value.

My wife and I together with our young daughter ate in Fishworks on Friday night as part of our hotel voucher package. I could not recommend this restaurant, quality was poor, service was the worst I've had in years. On entrance we were handed a limited menu with only a handful of options and no kids menu. My wife had... More

We had lunch here after a walk by the harbour. Considering its location to the sea I presumed the fish would be good! I ordered the chowder. There was barely any fish, mostly celery so disappointing. The chowder came with two tiny slices of brown bread which I considered stale. My boyfriend odered a salmon and cream cheese bagel. The... More
