On a recent 32nd anniversary trip, we were particularly interested in finding a good restaurant with well prepared fresh, local, wild fish. To our absolute delight, the Wild Fish restaurant, a recent arrival, presented us w/ some of the most elegantly tasty, and well prepared seafood we have ever eaten. The owners, Kelvin & Liz Jacobs are a warm & lovely presence. The crispy skin King Salmon & Black Cod were perfection! The wine & beer list is notably eclectic & local but also includes the delicious Old Speckled Hen Ale from the U.K. For dessert, their Sticky Toffee Pudding was incredible & if it's not already, should become a signature dish. A small, intimate restaurant, the service was spot on (Kelvin & Liz themselves!). They recently opened for lunch service, something that will be highly anticipated on our next trip!

We really enjoyed our lunch at the Wild Fish. It was right across from our hotel, but the prices were a little more reasonable, the view was picturesque, and the service and food was absolutely amazing!

We dropped in last night and were very, very impressed. My only regret is that we're leaving today and they are not open for lunch!! We shared the kale salad, which we won't do again, as it is sooooooo good that I'll need to have my own next time I come here. Seriously, I've dined at Cypress, Spruce, The Fifth Floor, and Frascati in the Bay Area and the kale salad at Wild Fish was the best thing I've eaten all year.

The fish entrees were excellent. We split the Black Cod and the Salmon. Both were exceptionally fresh and delicious. The preparation and presentation of both were wonderful.

We had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert and it, too, was great. Not too sweet and accompanied by a delicious vanilla ice cream.

The room is small, so you should definitely call for reservations if you're going on a busy night like Friday or Saturday.

Although this is a tiny venue located across the street from the Little River Inn, it is a jewel of a find for foodies. We stopped in for lunch and were very glad we did: the fish was fresh and prepared perfectly. Our friends tried the soup and salad, and both of them were very satisfied. Give this small restaurant a try; you won't be disappointed in the quality.
