Made special trip to try the Bluefish for lunch based on good TA reviews. Looks a bit scruffy from outside but is nice inside with well-spaced out decent sized tables. It has a Brunch (£4.50 each or 3 selections for £12) and Plates of the Day menu (typically £9-15). You can add a glass or red or white house wine... More

I have eaten here many times and have always found the food and service to be perfect and a cut above the rest. There is always a wonderful choice of dishes to tantilise the tasebuds. It is not cheap, but it's worth every penny. Thank you Blue fish!

I have been here several times and the food is always superb and freshly cooked using some great quality produce. A little more expensive but you get what you pay for. Great service, great food.

Lovely quaint surroundings. Staff were pleasant but overrun, I've noticed now that this has been a theme even in the best reviews of this restaurant. On paper looks like a great menu and we were really looking forward to our dinner. Our anticipation was dashed by the actual food and the price of it. Would have liked an itemised bill... More

We ate here last week and I find it quite difficult to rate. the food was all very good and beautifully presented. The staff were very pleasant and courteous although half way through our meal the service disappeared as the restaurant got busier . I think my main "complaint " would be that the price of starters and desserts is... More

We went for lunch as a group of 5 adults and one 3 year old. The proprietor was really welcoming and staff were helpful and attentive. Food and drink was of very good quality and generous in portions from a very varied menu. The location is perfect alongside Chesil Beach and the restaurant is comfortable in a rustic style.

This was an unexpected change of venue as we had planned to go somewhere else, we had a fantastic evening.There were only 3 of us and we all ordered something different from the menu. None of us were disappointed with our meal. We all ordered off the standard Thursday night menu which offered a choice of a steak, a handmade... More

Third year running at the Blue Fish - we always go back when in Portland. Great seafood, lovely wine, wonderful ambiance. Thursday is Moules night - well worth booking in advance for!
