“Excellent Fish Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

This addition to the excellent Fishworks chain of restaurants is well located within about three minutes walk of Piccadilly tube. The restaurant is spacious and the service is friendly and efficient. The food is well presented, with a very wide range of fish dishes available. Pricing is not cheap, but is not out of line with the general standard at which this restaurant is aimed. Overall you should not be disappointed.

“High quality food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Fishworks gives very high quality food for what could be described as middling prices. A one course meal with coffee for two comes out at about £60.00, which for London is good. Just opposite at the Ritz, one would spend twice as much, get miniscule portions served with a great deal of pretentiousness, and the food would be no better. Fishworks is a great place to go after visiting the Royal Academy, being only five minutes away in Swallow Street. Be careful not to go in the other fish restaurant, which one passes before getting to Fishworks.

“Great for fish lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Reliably delicious fish & shellfish served with a smile, excellent wines and a good selection of side dishes. Daily specials augment a large regular menu.

“If Carlsberg was a Fish Restaurant then.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is how a fish restarant should be. The fresh fish (and NO smell by the way - proves its fresh), on a big counter as you go in and a kitchen which is basically open so you can see what the chefs are doing.
Been here before a few years ago (pre trip advisor reviewer) and it is just superb. A great range of fish. Nothing fancy and great pre-theatre meal. Service was fast and attentive and the food came out pretty quickly.
Cannot wait for next time.

“Good fresh fish, but pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

This particular Fish Works is hidden away down Swallow St.The food is good and fish very fresh.However, choosing whole fish from the counter can be pricey.I think the restaurant lacked a little atmosphere and service could have been better.
