Had lovely lobster & bottle of muscadet. Eton mess ok but nothing special- not enough strawberries. Lovely waiters but the manager was arrogant & thought he was doing us a favour. Would go back though.

As we had drinks we are only able to comment on the staff and drinks. Staff were very accommodating but the drinks were a little on the pricey side. Comparable with high end London prices for cocktails but without the selection but it is a restaurant and not a bar. Look forward to eating here on our next visit as... More

Been before, so we tried it again. Weren't disappointed. A comfortable blend of top quality food, attentive & friendly service (thanks) and stunning location. Nice short menu which makes sense; other options, but must have fresh fish, which couldn't be better. Try also the tempura-battered beach vegetables, just right. Worth 5* definitely.

The fantastic views of Lyme Bay towards Golden Cap are matched by friendly, welcoming staff and excellent, locally-sourced food -especially the fish..

We have visited Hix in Lyme for years and this is the first time we have felt slightly disappointed. The reason was the meagre portion one of us was served as a main course - it was really no more than starter size and made us feel taken advantage of, which is a pity as we have always looked forward...

This is a wonderful place for a fresh fish meal. There is always something I tweeting onthe menu and the simple grilled fish of the day has always been great when I've visited. Love the water policy and can't say enough about service or view.

We really enjoyed our visit here from first class service, beautifully cooked delicious fish to the wonderful view overlooking Lyme Regis Bay. It was a treat from start to finish. My grilled lemon sole was cooked to perfection.

Struggled to find anything on the menu that appealed really. Our starter was overlooked totally. All four mains were disappointing but the crushed potatoes and minted peas were very good. Overall expensive as mainly cheap cuts of fish and I object to then paying to add veg. G & T at almost £10 a throw. We didn't stay for a... More

I was looking forward to visiting this restaurant as I have seen Mark Hix on TV and he is very talented. I can only judge by what we had on the night. Battered oysters were very good, but the spiced mayo was a touch too Marie Rose and sweet. Scallops were fresh and tasty, but my spider crab lacked texture.... 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.
