Fish
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!

Met up with friends for an early 6 oc Sunday dinner. Despite the quirky time everything was great. Quick friendly service, food really good and a wide choice, nice wines. Perhaps a little bit pricey but all very tasty.

Busy floor but friendly and attentive staff coped very well with the Saturday rush. Fish can feel a bit noisy when full but we could converse OK despite it being full. Usual excellent fish offerings - always check the specials, this weekend's halibut was exceptional. Good range of wines to suit their menu.

Although you can generally get seated if you turn up on spec, it's better to book for peak periods.

Vegetarian dish was flavourless and oily. Service hurried us to leave - there is a policy to get high turnover, but we had only been there 50 minutes. Waiter was unpleasant when questioned. Then later apologised and gave us free wine. But the damage had been done.

I've used Fish over a number of years. It's amazingly situated in Borough Market, so some shopping can always be done before or after a visit. It's only a few paces from London Bridge. The Fish is always outstanding, I've never had a poor meal here. The fish menu is quite extensive and always fresh. The service is prompt and polite. Be sure I'll be using the restaurant again for meeting and catching up with old friends.

This is my second visit in recent months. Unfortunately the cost has risen steeply and not in conjunction with the quality of what was offered. The food was fine but certainly not for the price demanded. Way too expensive.

Impromptu lunchtime meal, 3 hours to kill due to hotel booking time. What can one say, no complaints what so ever. Service was outstanding, nothing was to much trouble, we were not rushed. Gave their recommendations of the wines to go with our meal. The Rose Sancerre was a pleasure to drink. The courses came just the way we-like. Starter was oysters, nice and fresh. The main courses was a delight to eat and cooked to perfection. My wife and I always rate a restaurant based on the vanilla ice cream, this is highly recommended creamy and delicious. It’s not the first time we have dined at FISH and it will not be the last.

Food and service were excellent and delicious.

However it was disappointing that arriving at 7.00pm for dinner the Skate Wing special was off and there were only two of the special sole left. Rather strange so early in the evening!

Great ambience and lovely fresh fish. Well priced Scottish lobster and good wine selection. One of our group was vegetarian and didn’t want the only veggie dish on the menu but the chef wouldn’t cook a simple omelette which was slightly disappointing. So I deducted one star for this. Otherwise a very good experience and felt like good value overall.

Prices have increased dramatically of late. Prawn cocktail starter was hugely priced at £16.50, for what it was. My clam chowder had four tiny clams and mainly potato. Poor value. They removed it from the bill as I complained. The main course fish was fresh and tasty. I have previously been a regular customer but was quite disappointed this time. For this price I would expect much more quality.

Had the special croquettes made with Salmon - best I’ve ever tasted!! For mains, I had beer battered haddock & chips - really delicious, only downside for me was that it had the skin on, but easy enough to peel off. My boyfriend had fresh grilled Mackerel fillets with roast butternut squash and a red wine jus and a portion of Samphire on the side - also incredibly good. We both cleared our plates ( he ate my skin). Will def visit again.

The food was incredible. The service was great too but they were so busy because it's such a popular restaurant sometimes it took a little longer to get service but when we did it was always pleasant and enjoyable. I'd highly recommend this restaurant. The presentation of the food, the atmosphere and the restaurant's location are top tier.
