You'd think that the SE of England would be home to any number of good seafood restaurants, however, it is not. This is why it was a very pleasant surprise to find the Little Fish Market.
We came down from London for the day to eat here based upon reviews on TripAdvisor (it took an hour door-to-door). The place was very quiet for lunch, but that's fine for us as it means you get to chat with the guys who run the place, and are very keen to get feedback on their relatively new venture.
I won't go into great detail on the food, suffice to say, the chef knows how to select quality seafood and certainly knows how to cook it. Beautiful fish cooked with genuine skill and care. Menu only has 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 desserts but we struggled over what to order - there were so many beautiful looking courses. Cooking fish well is a real skill and the fish we ate here was superior to that which we have eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants.
Again, the wine list is fairly small, but we found a very nice bottle which was very reasonably priced.
Don't come here if you want a very fancy, white-table cloth, french maitre-d experience. Nor if you don't really like seafood.
Eat here if, like us, you like eating beautiful ingredients, cooked extremely well by a talented young chef, and you like warm, friendly, less formal service.
Oh, and the 3 course meal for 2, with a bottle of wine and 2 glasses of dessert wine came in at £100. A total bargain for this standard of cooking.
We're looking forward to our next visit to the seaside so that we can eat here again.
