We enjoyed the whole experience at Cafe Fish from the moment we walked in, actually from the moment we phoned to book. The king prawns were delicious, the New Zealand wine was zingy, the sea bass was fresh and cooked perfectly. For dessert- lemon sorbet with lemon curd, tangy, refreshing. We enjoyed our chat with the friendly waitress.

One of the best fish restaurants we have been to. The welcome when we walked in and the service received all evening could not have been bettered. And as for the food-excellent. Started with the seafood chowder and scallops which were so tasty and cooked to perfection. For main course I had the hake and my wife had the roast... More

Loved this fish restaurant. The owner was very chatty and seemed a genuinely friendly guy. He spent a lot of time talking to my wife and I when we arrived and returned to his kitchen once we were served our meal. I had fish in beer batter which was absolutely delicious. The chips were chunky and traditional cooked to perfection.... More

Good seafood chowder to start but not so good main course. I ordered lobster crab and prawn platter. Prawns were completely devoid of flavour, nowhere as good as I get from my local supermarket. Lobster had little more flavour and was too chewy. Baby leaf salad looked good but lacked both flavour and dressing. The only thing with any flavour... More

the start to a wonderful evening is meeting the Host, who is a brilliant character full of knowledge about "fish". The choice is vast from oysters to old fashioned fish and chips and in between fresh fish of many descriptions from sea bass , hake , turbot and scampi but not your supermarket variety. The waitress who looks after you... More

We had been advised to try the place out if we had chance and were not disappointed. The owners were very welcoming and friendly giving good advice on the menu so we got the best experience from our meal. I had the seafood chowder (a definite highlight) followed by scallops and my partner had thai fishcakes followed by lobster basket.... More
