Nice view

Had lunch with a large group. Service was good. The set menu is fine. They also have a cheaper bento box offering. Food was very high quality. I enjoyed the fish cakes and salmon. Others really pleased with the fish and chips selection.

from the reserved wheel chair to the stunning views this lunch for 15 of us celebrating a 95th birthday was absolutely fabulous. Outstanding service, attentive and yet not in the way but always available. Nothing was a problem, the food was delicious and beautifully presented. No hesitation on giving this the highest recommendation.

We found this a pleasant experience. Food was good and service was fine. It is a hotel dining room and as such lacked a bit of ambiance and we waited for drinks service. Lovely outlook.

Our experience here was influenced by a very attentive and lively waiter, our table out on the deck overlooking the water, and absolutely lovely weather. The front of this restaurant looks out over the harbor and it was fully open the night we were there. We watched the boats and the sunset as we ate. We had the venison carpacio... More

Friendly telephone reservation, friendly welcome, prompt service, excellent food. Only quibbles are somewhat small portions and rather high prices. Make sure you do have an appetizer as well as a mains. But, all, in all, a very good choice.

Decided to eat at Fish after reading the reviews. Service was shockingly poor from the moment we walked in. No on to greet us on entry the reception area was abandoned. Once seated we place our orders and starters and mains came ok. Then no one came around to take desert orders. Once desert was ordered it was a 35... More

i am hoping this was just not a good night, waiting 5 minutes to be greeted (understaffed ?). Service then improved. Oysters - great. Kids meals - over cooked chicken tenders for one, the others fish fine. Mains - seafood stew was a good mix, however probably lacking in content. Steak - sorry but overlooked and under seasoned. The glass... More
