Went for a meal during the week for a birthday and had a selection of starters and mains. The food was fine, however the menu descriptions were unnecessary and over-complicated (ie trying to be more interesting than they were) Also, there's no real atmosphere or identity to the upstairs restaurant. Visited the cafe / bistro downstairs in February, and despite... More

This restaurant had some excellent reviews and was worthy from what I heard of getting them. It has now closed (time of writing early May 2013) and has been so for a few months. Such a shame, good fish restaurants in the midlands are too rare. It has reopened but as a cafe/restaurant with a different cuisine and I have... More

Booked a table for my wife and myself on the phone. When I turned up, they had no record of the booking! OK, these things happen but they could not have dealt with this in a manner that was more offensive or rude! I was blamed for the mistake. Eventually offered a table outside - it was windy and cold!... More

I was on business in the Buckingham UK and stumble upon this place. It had such a great vibe. A cozy intimate space with jazz playing and mood lighting. The menu was a really exciting mix of international with an African twist! They had some fish dishes, a vegetarian and something for those who don’t like fish (my colleague). I... More

I was in Buckingham on business and stumbled across this place; what a gem. I like a little something different and Halibut was just that. Essentially an international menu with an African twist. It’s small but really quaint with elegant décor. The first thing that struck me was the vibe. The menu had a fun twist with some really unusual... More

I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and was concerned that this was not going to be a great dining experience. However, it was lovely. The food was excellent - elegantly presented and loaded with flavour. I didn't know what to choose because it all sounded so tasty. The wine (we had the house red) was so good that... More

Regret not having been before but hubby not keen on fish. Had no idea they catered to meat eaters too and so beautifully well! Mine, bouillabaisse - rich and flavourful (nice bowl!), halibut and puy lentils - perfectly cooked, lovely flavours and presentation. Hubby - warm mango salad, braised ox cheek with mustard mash. It was heaven! Could have eaten... More

Several of us booked here for lunch. We were the only people there, the smell as you walked up the stairs was very unappetizing and the decor and furniture very basic. Soup was served in huge dishes with tiny bowls. I had goats cheese and mango rocket salad, there was the barest slither of cheese and mango. Portions very mean... More

We needed a quick lunch and, coming across the Halibut, imagined this specialist fish restaurant would provide something interesting and good. We were made welcome and, because my companion has difficulty with stairs, were invited to eat downstairs. So far so good. However, the simple fish and chips we chose proved mediocre. The fish had little flavour and the chips... More

Strange place which seems to be successful but a very odd dining experience. Almost canteen like decor with garden chair furniture. Expensive for what you get but still seems to have found a niche. Odd menu - an eclectic collection. Fish sales downstairs - no diea why as Waitrose around the corner. No real complaints just didn't hit the mark... More
