Once again, a fantastic experience! Hadn't booked a table but was lucky to have the option of eating inside or outside! Staff were extremely attentive and a jug of iced water was given to us with our menus. Hard to choose but decided for the "special" of basil and brie risotto with truffle oil and hubby chose bavette steak with... More

I've driven past so many times but this time stopped to eat. I wish I hadn't driven by so many times before. The food is excellent and primarily fish with the menu varying each day dependent on what is fresh. Also loved the quirkiness of the location by chesil beach and the design of the restaurant. Such a pity the... More

Having read all the reviews we were really looking forward to dinner at the Bluefish. I had booked online 24hrs before but they had not looked at the emails as the email was received during "service". I rang but initially they were unable to accommodate us, they were, however, vary apologetic and pleasant but did say that I had not... More

We went here last night for the taster evening. The staff were friendly and attentive . It's a bright room with a lovely atmosphere . All 6 courses were amazing and the chefs amuse bouche was great. We really enjoyed it and would definitely return.

The food at this restaurant should get 5 out of 5, but the main sea bass had an awful reblachon cheese on the potatoes. The sea bass was excellent, but the cheese ruined the whole dish. For the dessert, the chocolate mouse was also too heavy. On a positive note, the starters of scallops and mussels were very good. The... More

Have visited three times and never been disappointed. Hard to choose from menu because everything sounds intriguing. I think the starters are a little small but the main courses are generous - maybe this is a good thing?! The chef knows how to cook fish and does more unusual cuts of meat beautifully. It's obvious a lot of care goes... More

We came here for a special family lunch - three generations around one table. We had excellent, attentive service, including nice touches like access to a toybox for our wiggly four year old which kept grandad entertained too. The menu was small but perfectly formed, and all the food was cooked fresh, even down to the delicious home made tomato... More

My husband and I went here for lunch today. It is not the first time we have been and it's the second time in two weeks. We had the scallop starter with pea puree and black pudding which was glorious and the prok cheeks with port juis and cauliflower puree, georgious! Then we had braised beef with broth and the...
