Worst meal in London! No surprise it is empty on a Saturday! Poor service. Shocking food. Do not attend!

Good pricing which in London if you are traveling on a budget is probably welcome. I had the seafood pasta as a small portion, it was fine but nothing I couldn’t make myself, and the seafood was clearly from a mixed frozen bag and over...cooked. Friendly staff though and not expensive at all. You get what you pay for.More

Fob wasn’t bad but any order arrived within 15 Mn of ordering. We Tried it but wouldn’t come back. It’s definitely cheap and it is the only positive point.

This restaurant is a bit like stepping back in time to the 70s or 80s it’s quite old fashioned inside and quite basic. Red and white checked table clothes it’s a bit like a french bistro. This was my second visit and I really love...this place service is friendly and efficient The food is well cooked with some unusual dishes on offer The main thing is also it is great value for money a set 2 course meal being I think around £15 A fun placeMore

This restaurant is located near to the Clapham Junction train station. It has good list of food including meat and fish and other sort. Inside the restaurant you might attracted to the different shapes of vintage mirrors as well as some chairs from local church....It has lots of seating provided downstairs and upstairs.More

Fish in a Tie has been a favourite of mine for years and years and I have brought groups of friends here repeatedly but my recent experiences have made me wonder what’s going on. I chose from the £9 lunch menu and noticed that the...tilapia fish which was meant to come with the delicious dill sauce had a small spoonful of plain bechamel type sauce with no flavour at all. Instead of two hot vegetables it came with carrots and a few salad leaves with a bit of mash. It used to be served with a green vegetable like broccoli. The size of the desserts have decreased. My main complaint though is that the restaurant was cold and had horrible loud music playing which made it very hard to have a conversation. There was also a cold atmosphere- very few customers and a waiter with a pony tail who looked bored stiff and didn’t once ask if we were enjoying the meal. In fact he had to be called away from his mobile on two occasions and didn’t even say goodbye when I left though I had to pass right in front of him. Perhaps there’s been a change of ownership? We all agreed we would not be returning in a hurry. So sad.More

Today was my second time at the restaurant and I love it! In addition to a la carte, the restaurant has fantastic daily specials with a two courses’ menu for £9, starter and main course. Puddings are an extra £4.50. They make their own tartar...sauce for the scampi, they proposed alternatives to the dill sauce, hollandaise or salsa which were fantastic. My Amaretto cheese cake was superb, light and not too sweet. Service is laid back yet attentive, the Italian owner pretending to be a mere waiter, the decor attractive with various big mirrors dotted around. We stayed 2 hours and a half without being prompted to leave at any point. Fantastic and worth a special trip!More

Visited here after a day at the Ski & snowboard Fesrival. Food was good, would have liked it served a bit hotter, other than that there was a good selection. The service was quick with polite and friendly staff. As a matter of not much...interest,the ladies loo was rather cramped, dont know how oversized ladies manage!!!More
