From oysters to main - delicious and fresh. A tad expensive. A little crowded. And a slip up with attention to detail - on seating the waitress removed the top paper tablecloth to then expose a fabric white tablecloth underneath which was covered with breadcrumbs which she duly dusted off with her hand and onto the floor.I would have expected...

We have been a couple of times now. The menu has changed but is still very good. The tempura cod cheeks are excellent for starters. I wish I could be more adventurous with the main course but the lemon sole has me hooked. I could eat that twice a week and never get bored. All washed down with a perfectly... More

I have been to Bonnie Gull several times and I have never been disappointed. Their fish and chips are top notch. Other dishes such as clams, oysters are also fantastic. Their menu always changes so can always find something new each time. The only downside is that it is so popular and in one occasion we have been politely asked... More

We arrived for an early dinner. Our friend in a wheel chair had arrived first and they had all but sorted her. Very friendly staff. All ultra efficient. Two women and one man. The man even smiled at the till. Cocktails were provided fairly quickly - menus shortly after. I had scallops. I hate the coral and should have had... More

The food was good but not worth the price, £18 for fish and chips. The chips were excellent though. Service was streched on lunch visit. The room is small room with the front door opening and closing affecting all diners. Also not much space between the tables.

This restaurant is very intimate so I highly recommend making reservations. The menu is changing daily based on the fresh fish caught that day. The menu has a lot of thought put in it that it was hard to decide what to get. The staff was wonderful also. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant when visiting London.

It was a really cold evening and we did not make reservation. We were offered a small table outside. The heater on top was not functioned really well. The service was friendly and server explained the menu really well. Even down to the oyster taste! We tried three different types of oyster. They tasted excellent. Our fishes main courses were...

Small, unassuming, unpretentious, little restaurant situated in Foley Street. The food is the star here and takes centre stage as a serious player in the seafood culinary world. The pre-starter Porthilly oysters were, without doubt, the best I have ever tasted by a mile. The ensuing starter of sea trout tartare was melt in the mouth delicious and the mains... More
