This place is one I feel quite ambivalent about. Good and less good visits alternate. This was one of the later not so good visits. Fish and chips were stodgy and quite disappointing. Service was not wonderful. I think it will be a while before I revisit

Recently we stayed at the Courtyard Waltham and were able to walk across the street to the Naked Fish. The décor was beautiful with stars hanging from the ceiling, the atmosphere was sexy, the bar gorgeous, and the service top notch (by Sylvia our waitress). We had the baked haddock and it was the best I've ever had and also... More

Was in town for business for one night. Opted for places that were close to the hotel we're staying at and stumbled upon this place in the restaurant listing. All I can say is wow! I have not had a meal this good since I don't know how long. I opted for the Catalan stew which is a tomato broth... More

Naked Fish has a relaxing atmosphere, Cuban cuisine and attentive staff. I had the scallops, which were delicious! Everything is good here.

Great bar selection which included Guinness, so I ordered a black & tan...perfect! The Catalan Stew was excellent, and my friends had veggie paella and grilled tuna. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. The only dessert ordered was the pear ginger tart, which was reported to be very good.

I had the fish tacos and they were great with avocado relish on top. The next night I had the Lemon Risotto (includes nice grilled scallops). Also awesome although I liked the fish tacos better. Wish I could haved tried some of their other items!

I always love going to the Naked Fish. I lived in Waltham 20 years and it was always my go-to restaurant when guests are in town. The paella is worth the 20-minute wait. Have an appetizer and enjoy a cocktail while you wait. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I enjoyed a great lunch here. The service was good and the food delicious. We would definitely recommend. It was right across the street from our hotel so we had easy access.

Being in a central location of Waltham makes Naked Fish a perfect place for people from thither and yon to meet for lunch or dinner. And the food and the service do not disappoint. With an emphasis on fish (obviously), the restaurant offers a Latin spin on the fish dishes as well as specialties, including the delicious Cuban sandwich. The... More

Very good seafood. The fried assorted appetizer is very tasty. The sesame mahi mahi was great as well as the ahi tuna steak. The fired plantains were wonderful. The place is fairly quite. Was there two nights in a row meeting with different groups, one business, one friends with children and had a very enjoyable time both nights.
