Wow, what a nice place! We came here for a beer and view ended up with coffee and carrot cake with ice cream too. Excellent. Yes, it is a bit pricey but come on the view is worth it and the snack and drinks we ordered were superb. My bottle of imported German beer came with it own champagne bucket style stand, love it! The menu had English written on it and a waiter who spoke English helped us with selections and was very friendly.

An excellent location on the waterfront in the fishing village complex, decor and style rather old fashioned and over the top, but charming nonetheless.
If you are not careful this could be a very expensive meal indeed, but with judicious selection from the menu it is possible to have an excellent meal for a reasonable cost (wife and I had two courses each plus nice bottle of wine for about 80 euros)
Unlike a previous poster I was impressed that they didn't try to pretend that all the fish was locally caught. They were quite happy to tell you that certain fish had come from Kamchatka or the Caribbean, which is much more honest than insisting it was all caught in the bay.
The service we received was excellent, and I could strongly recommend Fish Club.

We heard this was the best restaurant in Kaliningrad and booked for our group of 9 persons and all got dressed-up accordingly. The ambiance is very 'golden' with lots of heavy fringe and gilt, a bit over the top for Western tastes. The view over the river from the full-length glass windows is beautiful, especially by sunset
Unfortunately our main waitress seemed to be the least friendly of the staff. She was annoyed with all our questions regarding the fish wagon she rolled over to present and our general questions regarding the long and varied menu (which is thankfully in English). She had a very sour presence which dampened the evening. I must add that our wine waiter and other servers were very friendly and professional, always filling up our wine and water glasses and presenting courses with a smile.
The food was very good, but we found it almost shockingly over-priced, especially the high prices per 100 grams of various sea-foods. After all, we weren't in Paris or London. The wine list was good.
I had the (warm) zucchini and caviar starter (excellent), the red snapper filet (good) with ratatouille (awful) and then profiteroles (sadly missing any chocolate sauce). So a bit hit and miss.
The biggest issue of the night was the truly awful music which was played at a very high sound level. I see from other comments on Trip Advisor that we are not the only ones to have suffered. We asked several times to have the volume reduced, but the staff sternly refused. The appalling selection which ranged from saccharine 50s hits to disco to techno did not in any way match the atmosphere this 'fine restaurant' was hoping to aspire to.

We went to the small Fischdorf area on recommendation of pie guide and walked up and down the river walk first to check out the restaurants. After the usual problem in Kaliningrad - no English menu and not many restaurant staff daring to speak English - we decided on this place mostly for the well balanced (and English subtitles!) menu.
We really enjoyed the fish dishes - even though all the fish seems to be imported and nothing really local - and were impressed by the waiting staff. Service in this town can be hit or miss, with dishes brought in order that they come out of the kitchen (but not all served together for a part of even three...), limited or more often no English, plates eared the second one finished the last bite... But alas not so here, all staff seemed well trained and very attentive. We came back for a second night later in the week, and enjoyed the nice outdoor seating once more. The only slight downside was the somewhat noisy (even if well chosen) music playing which made conversations a bit more difficult. It seems the place wants to give itself a "lounge" atmosphere and that must be part of that game plan. It does work for the right atmosphere - this could be a restaurant in Madrid, London or New York.

Good fish dishes, a little bit on the expensive side. Good choice of wines. The grilled Dorado was excellent. Pasta was disappointing.
