“Just delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Everything about this experience was a delight. From the beautifully thought through decor, to the presentation to the food itself which was just delicious. I've used the fishmonger and decided it was time a friend and I went for an early evening bite. The atmosphere was perfect, a treat without being pretentious and the staff were thoroughly friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. We had intended to go just for Oysters but ended up having a few of the smaller dishes too, and every single one we ordered was just as delicious as the last. The wine list was great and clearly a lot of thought had gone into that too...no stone has been left unturned here! All in all a great place, can't wait to go back!!

“Christmas seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

My first visit was to pick up some seafood for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner. Good selection and very fresh. I stayed for some oysters and a glass of wine and enjoyed the atmosphere and the friendly staff.

Cant wait to go back for dinner!

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Went here on a recommendation whilst visiting London recently and so glad we did! The food was delicious and the service second to none. Staff are all friendly and cannot do enough for you which is a rare find in today's market! A huge variety of very imaginative dishes, a great wine list and lovely atmosphere. Just wish we lived nearer and could come more often!

“Different and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

I went on Wednesday night and what a fantastic experience! It's a little quirky as the restaurant front is more like a fishmongers- but this just adds to the ambience and individuality. What's even better is that this isn't a gimmick, the food is just delicious. The wine list has been imaginatively yet carefully selected to accompany the fresh fish and seafood on offer. The service was exceptional and it is reasonably priced. I can’t wait to go back… you must go!
