Lovely view. Lovely staff. Food was a bit disappointing. Fish pie seemed smaller and my friends didn't rave about it. Crab was watery, tasteless and i found out after this not the time of year for crab...so why put it on the menu. It was good value £165 for 5 although we shared one starter. I still love it here...

Great ambience, fantastic food and really good value. We went in November so couldn't take advantage of the views which would be fantastic in the Summer! Staff very friendly and helpful. Love the fact that the restaurant is relaxed and not "stuffy" at all despite it being run by a top class chef. Highly recommend.

Been before and enjoyed it very much. Fish on the bone are brilliant but huge - easily enough for two people. Great place to sit in the wind and rain as well as on a sunny day. Two of our waiters were really lovely but the thin chap who took the order was very frosty and didn't bring drinks when... More

Had a slight problem at the outset when the website didn't mention clearly that Wednesday is a set Feast menu. However, our reservation was changed without any fuss and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Beautifully cooked fish and spanking fresh native oysters with on the ball and friendly service.

Booked a table for half term with the kids, as a treat. Had big expectations. The oysters were delicious, but two of them were not opened and each one had shell in - not good, I can do better than that at home. The dab was under seasoned and the measly brown shrimps were the 'powered' kind, so not fresh... More

a wonderful clear sunny November day and a lunch at Hix. The view is half of the pleasure, the rest is in the fresh fish, simply and perfectly prepared. Not poncy or complicated, but well executed and delicious.

Today I visited Hix Oyster and Fish House with my husband and two 4 year old daughters as part of my birthday week-end. I do not normally write reviews, but we were so impressed with how the staff looked after us and the quality of the food that I felt we should share our views. We turned up without a... More

We recently enjoyed a lovely dinner here. Advisable to book in advance as it is a popular place. The staff were welcoming, unobtrusive and professional. I had a really delicious mushroom starter followed by John Dory - as I don't like whole fish on my plate the chef filleted them. It was excellent. My husband enjoyed a sardine starter followed...

We had booked in advance as we had heard that it got busy. The Lemon sole was amazing as were the other meals in our group. we were back for dinner the next day and had an equally good time. we were also lucky to have live music which was very pleasant. we would go back.

Really good fish, and terrific chips. Staff were incredibly helpful and attentive. We were at chefs table in the kitchen which was too hot and seeing how hard the staff worked made me want to help!
