Not a fancy place, but a good place for an inexpensive lunch. Friendly service and interesting luncheon menu. I highly recommend it.

We ate in Fenn's Quay on a Saturday evening & had a really positive experience. Good selection on the menu & great service from our friendly waitress. I had the bacon & my husband had the beef as our mains with two sides which was more than enough. Was so full could only have the truffles as dessert with two... More

Just happen to be parked outside Fenn's Quay one morning and was looking for a nice healthy breakfast. I had never been but had heard great things so I decided to give it a go. So glad I did.....I have found my new little piece of heaven. Such a lovely happy atmosphere in there. Seems to have a lot of... More

Fenn's Quay has been on the go for some time now and the food remains excellent and experimental in its taste combination. Staff are very friendly and the service is superb. I just think the restaurant itself as an eating space needs a revamp. It is looking tired and I would be concerned that this might soon begin to affect... More

I visited Fenn's Quay one evening for dinner at around 7pm or so. There were two tables occupied at the front of the restaurant and the back looked empty. Two staff members were having a conversation at the counter when we came in, and neither of them stopped to show us to a table or give us menus. One of... More

Was quite intrigued by the dessert we were served on our final stop of the tapas trail. It was a mousse type dessert and one of the ingredients was moss. It was different and absolutely beautiful. It was also nicely presented in these little jam jars which was a nice touch. Whilst we only had dessert here the restaurant'smenu seemed... More

Well with a try and in a great location within walking distance from most of the city centre. The menu is limited but it satisfied the four of us. Food was great quality, the atmosphere was great, the service was excellent and all reasonably priced. Would return tomorrow if I was in the city.

It was definitely a great experience, more than what we expected looking at the exterior and interior of the restaurant. Food was great and we all had a really nice time. Staff was extremely helpful.

Stumbled across this authentic little restaurant by chance, and what a find! Great atmosphere, welcoming staff who were both attentive and discreet, and an innovative menu. We had the hake special, which was simply done, and perfectly cooked, with an array of fresh and interesting accompanying vegetables. Although not planning on afters, we were curious at the reference to a... More

Came here on a Saturday in June for a birthday meal. We were the only ones there most of the time which is a great shame as the food and service is excellent. The menu had some nice unusual twists in it (my fish mousse starter was a sheer delight). While a choice of just 4 or 5 main courses... More
