It's a super casual atmosphere. The seafood was not as expected. Someone that has been coming here for some time said it was really good. Maybe it was an off night.

Fishmonger is next to the more upmarket and expensive Seacliff restaurant in the small shopping mall next to it. It's an outdoor rooftop setting with bistro-like atmosphere. I had the Classic British fish and chips and the only thing missing was the mushy peas!

I would have rated this higher but there were just too many flies buzzing all around me to enjoy the food. I had the shrimp and kingclip type fish and the taste was good. But, when you are battling flies, it was just uncomfortable. You sit outside and it was quite hot. I think if they would turn on some... More

The setting of the roof top restaurant is ok but the food is below par. I had a fried fish which was more than fried and dry. None of our party of four was satisfied but possibly the chef had a bad day.

I would have eaten at the hotel instead. Nice enough place without being special, (its a terrace) nice ambiance. But clearly marketing to tourists. To be fair i arrived late, having watched the football first, However i had checked in advance and I still arrived 45mins before last orders for the kitchen. Calamari starter was quite nice, main course was... More

there's actually nothing what distinguishes fish monger from a average fish restaurant apart from the price they dare to ask for their frozen fish dishes.

Service is quite good, the food is excellent. I am a seafood adicted and I know when people treat seafood properly. The fish fillets with prawns and calamary were simply good. Will get back.

Food here was below par. Had the 1kg of Prawns, it had zero spice on it, and smelled very "fresh". But this is the fresh that you dont want to smell while eating prawns!! Their salad was also dissapointing.

I would like to share this incident of 29.07.2012 night. Me and my girlfriend were there for dinner. There was a couple sitting near us, the lady forgot her purse on the bench and left. Immediately as we too were leaving I saw the purse and told the manager/ owner who looked like a chinese. He took the purse and... More

Good food at good prices. The quality of the food seems very good. Staff are friendly. The restaurant can be rather busy with limited tables, so you might want to make a booking.
