Great atmosphere and nice location for a drink. Tapas menu only so if looking for more substantive food or not a share plate - choose another restuarant

Goldfish Bar was one of the only places open, serving food at 3pm. The menu offered was limited so we ordered the fish taco's which were delicious. The staff were lovely and it was really nice sitting at the outdoor tables in the sunshine.

The food is absolutely amazing! I also love the 20s/30s feel of the place. The cocktail list wasn't as impressive, but we did enjoy the couple of carafes of Istanbul Old Iced Tea that we ordered. The service wasn't exactly bad, but it wasn't great either.

We had a fantastic lunch with lots of friends but the service for the food and drinks was a bit less than offered. We had to wait for over an hour for some of the meals and gave up on the drinks.

I tried the "Braised Lamb Shoulder" there, it was amazing. I loved the atmosphere. The only issue that I score 4 is the long waiting time to get my food while there were not a lot of people in the restaurant.

Only popped in for a quick bite to eat and was super satisfied. The food was fresh and well presented. The flathead tacos were amazing as well as king crab soldiers and stuffed zucchini flowers all fantastic!

The meal was good. The beef carpaccio was one of the best I have ever had. When we booked we asked if there was a vegetarian option and was told yes they could cater for her. It was disappointing that we had to ask 3 times for her meal. In the end the chef came out and asked if gnocchi... More

Amazing share plates - crab soldiers with foie gras, kingfish tacos, carpaccio with cured egg yolk. Everything is delicious!
