We ate at the restaurant last evening (23 July). We were a party of 12, 6 adults and 6 children. We found our experience under par to say the least. Whilst the food was nice, the customer service was appalling. You expect more from a restaurant that is backed by a 'celebrity chef'. Whilst they may say this was due... More

This restaurant was heavily booked the night we were in Lyme Regis so we had to eat early but we were well looked after all evening. We were able to get a table on the balcony with a beautiful view of Lyme Regis Bay and a balmy evening breeze after an extremely hot day. The menu is a tribute to... More

The staff were extremely knowledgeable about the variety of fish on the menu. I was not disappointed by their recommendations, the food was excellent. If i had one criticism, the cost of the wines seemed high in comparison to other high end restaurants i have been to. Being a single diner did not cause them any inconvenience and i was... More

We went for dinner, and they were very accommodating changing our booking slot for an earlier time, although this meant we were out on the terrace. The terrace was lovely although the level of seating means that views to the sea are blocked! You are also seated under an open window which looks like you will hit your head quite... More

Wonderful Location – Wonderful Restaurant Nestling on a hillside within the lush Langmoor and Lister Gardens and with fabulous views across Lyme Bay and the Cobb, this restaurant has a truly wonderful location. The restaurant itself is not large, but the glass walls and the beamed, vaulted roof give it a spacious air, with the stunning view making you feel... More

Looking forward to another visit to this top fish restaurant for a friends birthday, only 4 of us and the restaurant was not busy. The food did not disappoint but the service needs a lot of attention, we waited 20 minutes for our drinks and the Viognier was not chilled enough for a hot afternoon. The starters came out prior...

Just had breakfast at Hix with friends. The company and location great but sadly it was all downhill from then on. We waited some time to be offered a drink in an almost empty restaurant with staff having more important tasks than serving the customers! I ordered kedgeree and was served rice with chicken on top covered in a thick... More

The location has a nice view but it ends there. There is no parking and the hill to the restaurant is very steep. I was seriously ill after eating at the restaurant and was not offered an apology. I can put it down tot the oysters or the dressed crab salad as my guest had 2 other dishes that were... More

I hosted a lunch yesterday at Hix, a lunch I was very much looking forward to after much hype. The food was great but the service left much to be desired. We constantly had to remind our waitress to bring things we had requested and never once were our wine glasses topped up. I could go on. Added to this... More

Hix Oyster & Fish House overlooks the harbour in Lyme Regis and boasts the most stunning panoramic views across the Jurassic coast - this is easily one of the most picturesque spots to enjoy fresh British fish seafood.

The Fish House is an informal, light and airy dining room with simple white wooden tables and chairs. Here the focus is on sourcing and serving the best produce we can find and doing as little to it as possible so that you enjoy the real flavour of great British ingredients.

HIX Oyster and Fish House supports sustainable fishing.
