“Seafood of the highest quality and service to beat that”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Fishmonger is know by many of its patrons to have no-nonsense service and their customers are put on a pedastal. While Fishmonger is a more expensive seafood restaurant to dine at the dishes are worth the cost.

There are always prawns specials available, the calamari is my favourite and Kabeljou is often the line fish on offer and it is superb/
