Loved dining at Parsons - would absolutely visit again! We had some delicious oysters and the skate wing, which was very decadent. The bread basket is also a must (the Guinness bread!!). Fantastic wine list.
Parsons is a lovely place. The food and wine is delicious, if pricey, and the staff can’t do enough for you. The only problem is space. It’s tiny and feels squashed. Although the upside to this is that you get to chat to your fellow diners and ask if they’d recommend their food choices should you feel so inclined. 😊
The oysters were brilliant. We tried the lobsters and really enjoyed that as well
The best fish in town
Perfect for post-opera supper -- no one else there! But they took the trouble to cook our sea trout and mussels expressly for us, and wonderfully done
Certainly one of the best restaurants for seafood in London. Great wine list by the glass which changes daily. Nice causal vibe.
Great little place - this is the second time we’ve been, and we’ll definitely be back!
Excellent fish and seafood restaurant not far from Covent Garden. The fish is always fresh and to a very good standard here.
It was more difficult than I expected to find a seafood restaurant in London. By that I mean one that really concentrates on fresh, simply prepared fish and shellfish. Bingo. Charming spot, in jam packed Covent Garden. Friendly and relaxed and wonderful fish.
Well located and charming with a good selection of seafood although desert was distinctly average. Reasonable pricing given the location. Friendly and helpful service.
Fabulous food and service!! Love this place!
Seafood is always fresh and done well and great value as well.
Lovely little restaurant , food was good and the service is excellent, will be going again.
A fabulous little friendly fish restaurant, full of character. The food was excellent the only negative was the value for money! Both against portion size and also the drinks are on the expensive side of fair.
Favourite restaurant in all of London!!
Smoked cod’s roe starter was creamy and delicious, and the marinated anchovies nice. We shared a piece of grilled turbot, excellent, so too the shared fish pie. A side order of broccoli had what I felt was an unnecessary amount of a sour lemony dressing.
A glass each of white wine worked well, especially the Cretan one which we preferred to an Italian. We shall have to return to sample the apple tarte fine, as we were too full, and come earlier in the evening before the specials have sold out. Very enjoyable, though quite cramped and noisy.
Had a stunning meal at this bijou fish restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful with wine recommendations and the food was so lovely. The potted shrimp croquettes were so full of lip smacking flavour, we wanted to order more as soon as we’d devoured the first three! The fish pie is also a stunner. Highly recommended.
Un fussy food and environment, excellent service and delicious fish
Delicious fresh fish . Side dishes - squid and stuffed cucumber were also excellent.
Amazing taste! Everything we tried was delicious!
Second delicious meal I have had at this restaurant
Lovely fresh seafood. More natural wines would be great.
Relaxed, delicious and delightful. Enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching the chef work. Went for a selection of starters to share and crisp white wine. Reasonable price and relaxed experience.
Fabulous Fish, lovely wine list, excellent & warm service.
Totally awesome as usual. Rock on.
Great fish and good service, at a price.
The food was really nice and creatively done. The staff were really friendly as well
Great restaurant - very intimate, good atmosphere and delicious food
Great food and service, just way too loud to make it an experience worth repeating unfortunately.
Superb as always with exceptional food and the most delightful staff anywhere.
Perfection. A really interesting fusion of Japanese and European fish cookery. This, for me, was better than J Sheekeys! Great for sharing plates. A very fun and relaxed atmosphere. If you love seafood, then get down there asap!
The food quality and the design of the dishes was amazing. Simple cooking techniques applied to fresh high quality ingredients created dish after dish of perfectly cooked and presented food.
The head chef has used a variety of herb combinations that accentuate the main ingredients giving you a range of flavours that are unique and exceptional.
The place to come for beautifully and simply prepared fish with complex and interesting sides. The clam chowder is a thing to behold - silky, smokey comforting perfection. charming lovely staff , excellent wine list set in a cosy restaurant you would have thought had been there forever.
This is a great fish restaurant. A good selection of fish that changes daily depending on what is available. The service was good and the staff very friendly. I would recommend booking if you want to be sure of a table. We went on a mid-week lunchtime and the place was buzzing!
Very cosy but very good. Great food and great service. Will definitely come back
Very high quality food , good selection of wines and attentive friendly staff . A tempting menu and we were tempted by the chowder and the fish pie . Both of very good quality . The atmosphere is relaxed , friendly . It is small and the tables very close together which can encourage chat with folk at the next table . Which it did .
Nice staff and quality food. Value of money
Use Open Table to booked for table for 2. Gets the smallest window seats while there are bigger tables around. 2 walk in customers got a table for 4. When the food comes, that’s not enough room for the side dishes as expected. The waiter told us to have the french fries after the main course. He can put them back to the kitchen. I nearly ask him to shore it up. The response is just unbelievable.
Food is forgettable compounded with service. Never again!
Very good seafood -super fresh-but cramped but good atmosphere and excellent Muscadet
Before coming to the restaurant with my missus, I hadn't eaten fish in (around) 8 years. My missus LOVES, and I mean LOVES seafood. We were sat down and looking around in the small but packed restaurant, we found the main menus not on our table, but on the walls. Every seafood dish is different every day, and all of their fish and seafood are freshly caught. The service was slow, but it was understandable, they were packed to tbe brim, even on a Wednesday night, and patience is key sometimes.
The wine selection was pretty basic but had some interesting choices, and was catered mostly to pair with a range of seafood.
We were served a Lemon Sole between two, which was absolutely divine. It was juicy, slowed right off the bone and the vegetables managed to soak up a lot of its slightly salty tang. The seaweed and cucumber was basic but a great pairing.
All in all, this was a great feast, and for the price of what we had which totalled to around £50, very cheap. The waitress was knowledgeable and took us through every step on the way.
Fab as always, a comforting fish pie on an autumnal day. Would have liked a bit more veg if I was being picky
