Description: This charming branch of FishWorks in Marylebone is a bright, informal restaurant serving up immaculately prepared, simple fish dishes. The cheery blue and white interior makes for a relaxed eating environment, with customers bustling around the traditional fish counter and specials handwritten on the chalkboards. Seafood specials include fish pie and shellfish platters, with a fish-friendly wine list and a children's menu available.

My daugher took me there for lunch, I ordered the Skate and portion of chips and she ordered the 2 couse special. She was told that the fishcakes would take an hour. She then ordered the cod which was on special that day. She ordered a carafe of wine and was told that this particular one was only available in Richmond.
My Skate, (which was much smaller than the one I had had at Richmond branch) came with a portion of spinach, their mistake, I had to wait for the chips and by then the skate was getting cold. My daughters cod was not hot enough and had to be returned.
We declined to leave the service charge.

With it's attentive staff and fresh seafood this restaurang is one of our Marylebone favourites. It is strategically located on Marylebone High Street and is a combined fish monger and restaurant. The wild Madagascan prawns with garlic, white wine, chilli and fresh ginger are superb. I also recommend the roasted sea bass with rosemary. Two great dishes!

We ate here on a Weds night - 4 adults and 2 kids. Nice atmosphere (busy) but service was attentive. I have eaten here twice in the last 3 months and both times its been a great experience. Fish has been super fresh and well cooked. Scallops for starter were large and full of flavour as were the mussels. Fish and chips and crab were excellent. The kids' meal are great value at GBP10 each including a desert. Wine list is fairly priced (although getting to the expensive end) but matches the fish. Overall a great evening out; good food and lively place. Recommend.

If you like fresh fish, which I do, then this is worth a visit.
You can choose your fish from the slab and they will cook it to order for you. Or you can order from the menu.
Good choice and the fishmonger is very helpful.
Friendly service.
There is limited meat menu available - but this IS a fish restaurant.
An enjoyable experience.

Growing up on the coast I didn't really eat much fish, but this much different now - this is a good place to get fish that come from local shores. It is well-cooked and the restaurant is clean and friendly, I especially like the sweet wine accompaniments that are suggested with the desserts.
