“What a find !!! excellent food and lovely place for a meal A+”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Only found this place as where staying in the hotel next door and what a find. The place is clean and really very nice with a great selection of fish. Very good prices too and staff and very helpfull. Wife had sausages (doesn't eat fish !!) and i had the cod in matzo meal coating which was really very nice. We have creamed potatoes, very very creamy and nice, and a salad on the side. It was cooked very quickly and i really could not fault the meal and would happily good back again many many times more if i where in the area. Many thanks for a lovely meal !!!

“Simply wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were staying in an hotel nearby and we come across this restaurant from the TA board: it's great! Grat food, friendly service, good price. At the end we had dinner there all the 3 nights we spent in London and we tried different dishes every night, we found fish and chips very good and I'd like to recommend you the roasted cod. We also took the fish of the day and it was great. Thanks guys for the delicious dinners.

“Goog fish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

It's not a bad place, quite basic but the food is fresh and cheap. Closes early, so hurry. The atmosphere is a bit tense and the decor is lacking personal touch

“Finally! Nice fish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Went here for dinner. I was very surprised to see how busy it was on TUESDAY night! I counted it as a good sign. We had a scallops with yummy herby oil to start. For the main course I had a big piece of grilled salmon, new potatoes and fresh salad (it was really fresh!). Also we had a scallops and prawns curry with rice. Everything was so delicious! Moreover the food was hot! Loved it. Very reasonable prices. Definitely recommend it!

“Don't let the area put you off... It'll be worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

We popped on for lunch but found the place had been hired for a christening. But! They still served us, just sat us next door and we were glad they did! The food was fresh plentiful and great value for money and it was a great spot to people watch. :) can highly recommend thank you
