Seafood
Established in 1999 and proudly celebrating twenty years in Borough Market this year, fish! was the first restaurant of its kind in London. Our concept is simple – providing our customers with the best quality fish, cooked in front of you, in simple and classic ways. Since 1999 our focus has never changed, quality and responsible sourcing is still our main concern…we just look a bit more fancy now!
Our central location in Borough Market means that London’s best produce is right on our doorstep. We are proud to say that we source most of our produce from Borough Market itself, and our fish is delivered daily from our very own fishmonger, Jarvis, which is renowned for its extensive range of the freshest fish and seafood. We're also winners at the National Fish & Chip awards too!

Thai fish cakes for starter were not good and did not taste fresh. Fish mains were good but nothing special. Desserts were also good but overpriced.

Excellent food and service. It is very lively and can get a bit boisterous, so this is not a place for quiet conversation.

Great place to eat fish. We had cod cheeks with samphire and cockles with local market fresh bread. Delicious and perfect portions for lunch. We liked the building and the high roof meant noise levels were low even though it was quite busy. Would recommend and hope to be back there soon.

Hadn't been to Fish! for a very long time - but now it's back on my go-to list around London Bridge. Really fresh fish, cooked in a variety of ways - I had swordfish, delicious. We started with cockle and mussel popcorn which was a little underwhelming. It was a very hot day, and the zircon didn't really make it to window tables - perhaps the waiting staff could alert people to that?

I am a Tour Guide. My customers wanted to go to Fish because 5 years ago they had a very good meal there but at this time all of us were disappointed.
The whole dove sole was not proper cooked, the squid was with a lot of pepper and the waitress not friendly.

We were recommended Fish! by a friend and it didn't disappoint. The food was delicious and a lovely restaurant to spend the evening in. We shared sardines and calamari which were both excellent, then had brill and smoked haddock for mains. Beautiful fish and great portion sizes, will definitely come back.

It was amazing in many ways. I was with friends who had never been to London and so chose fish as a known place of great cuisine, service and ambiance.
It didn’t fail to impress !

We have visited Fish several times and are always pleased by the service and the food. Although it can get quite busy, it never seems to feel that way. I am not sure background sounds are needed - the hum of good conversation should be enough.

Food was OK, but I was disappointed with only getting a single fillet of sea bream for c. £18. The wine I chose was really poor quality for £30 - we didn't drink it and got £10 knocked off, but it spoiled the meal, as wine should have been a part of the experience. No idea how that wine ( a Spanish white) made it onto the list, and certainly not at that price

Very average overpriced food. We asked for a wine recommendation and the waitress pointed us to the most expensive bottle on the menu. Found an automatic charity donation added to our bill - a pretty sneaky way to get customers to donate to fish’s charity of choice. I’ll choose which charity I donate to thanks. Locations great though and it’s a lovely big airy space.

I have been coming to Fish for years, the food was fine, service was good, but we were charged just over £50 for a 1/2 carafe of chardonnay which seemed really steep for the quality of the wine. I have just checked their website and the 1/2 carafe should have been around £30.

If you like fish and especially fish and chips, this is the “plaice” for you. Fish! Is convenient to London Bridge in the heart of Borough Market. It has a good variety of fish, good service, a decent selection of wine and cocktails and even food for non/fish eaters. Unless you arrive before 6 pm, it’s probably a good idea to book, especially on Fridays.

Good food enjoyed at a pre theatre lunch. Efficient staff but our waitress was somewhat unsmiling. Fair Value for money for London, but portions of some main courses rather small, we felt, especially the fishcake which could have had more vegetables offered with it. Noisy once the restaurant was full.

The service and food were very good, particularly the fish cakes and sticky toffee pudding. The restaurant could not be in a better location. My only slight issue being that Fish is a little on the pricey side. That aside I will definitely return.
