Description: This charming branch of FishWorks in Marylebone is a bright, informal restaurant serving up immaculately prepared, simple fish dishes. The cheery blue and white interior makes for a relaxed eating environment, with customers bustling around the traditional fish counter and specials handwritten on the chalkboards.

“Fishing in deep water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Lots of varieties, from large to little. Really excellent quality and good service. Even the dips for bread had a fishy but delicate quality.

“Very good fish and seafood restaurant in central London”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I have eaten here three times, and every time the food has been excellent.

The selection of fresh fish and seafood is good and the menu is interesting. The food is very well prepared / cooked and comes well presented. Contrary to some other reviewers, in my opinion the portions are not too small. The staff are courteous and all the waiters / waitresses we have encountered here have been friendly and efficient. A 12.5% service charge is automatically added to the bill.

The wine list is fine and not overpriced.

The decor is fairly uninspiring and as a number of reviewers have noted, the dining area is rather cramped and the tables are relatively small. Whereas I wouldn't describe FishWorks as inexpensive, in view of the quality of the food it represents good value.

We will be back.

“Delisious fish and sea food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Tasty food for adequate money. Very pleasant service.

As usual TripAdvisor requires long text for feedback this is common bla-bla-bla. Hope that will be enough.

“Great Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This looks like a wet fish restaurant from the outside but, behind it is one of the best fish restaurants in London, always fresh and cooked to perfection.
Surprise yourself and try it, you won't be disappointed.

“Always a great treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Best fish in London. Difficult to get into as it is so busy. Great staff.
Crab is prepared there and then. Always look forward to eating here.
