Every visit to London we go to the Fishworks at Marylebone for, Dinner, its consistancy to provide great fish dishes with my special favourite starter whitebait that melts in your mouth....

“Reliable, but a bit noisy sometimes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a great fish restaurant which always serves fresh and well-cooked fish and seafood. The only downside is that the acoustics are not great, so if there is a noisy party in you may find it difficult to converse. The oysters are great - pity they no longer do the bloody Mary with an oyster on top. That was a wonderful starter!

“Food is nice but the seating is extremely uncomforable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Visited for lunch with friend - nice staff but definitely not fully trained waited for 10 minutes for a drink even though it was not particularly busy.

Everything was fine save for the seating is against a wall with a long benched cushion type seat. I am five foot five and found that I was sitting particularly low to the table whilst my friend who is 5 foot sat on the wooden chair opposite and was taller!! There is also a cold wind which blows directly behind the benched seating which was particularly uncomfortable - must be some kind of extract fan but it made it very cold.

All in all though I would return.

Quick lunch for two,service v good. Starters of pear salad liked by my guest whilst I had good old
Fried whitebait served in a little bucket for some reason
Mains,we both had haddock,placed egg new potatoes etc -very traditional dish. Tasty and well presented. No time for pudding

It was not crowded thank goodness as the tables are close together.
I would go back but only for quick lunch / early evening meal

“Great fresh fish restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Great location in the middle of Marylebone High Street, you can either buy fresh fish from the front, or eat in the warm and welcoming restaurant behind. Good service and great selection of ordinary fish and chips-to more elegant lobsters etc. Good wine list too.
