“Good Fresh Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you like fresh fish, which I do, then this is worth a visit.
You can choose your fish from the slab and they will cook it to order for you. Or you can order from the menu.
Good choice and the fishmonger is very helpful.
Friendly service.
There is limited meat menu available - but this IS a fish restaurant.
An enjoyable experience.

“South coast fish in London”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Growing up on the coast I didn't really eat much fish, but this much different now - this is a good place to get fish that come from local shores. It is well-cooked and the restaurant is clean and friendly, I especially like the sweet wine accompaniments that are suggested with the desserts.

“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.
