We love fresh fish.

Since 1998, my family has tried to share that love with all of our guests through our fishmongers, restaurant and street food.

Like our entire business, our restaurant focuses on getting the best fish and keeping things simple.

We source all of our other products from the Market and tend to only use seasonal produce.

If you love fresh fish, a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff come to Applebee's and see what we are all about.

We booked for online for 10 people, so a large Party, but no problems booking it. The Restaurant is nice and in a good Location next to Borough Market.

We were greeted nicely and everything was ready for us.

The Food was very good. I had Octopus to start and then perfectly cooked Sea Bream. It came with a sauce, which was good to taste, but it would have overwhelmed the fantastic Fish for my personal taste had I put it on the Dish.

It may have been because they were busy and we were a large Group, but my only criticisms are that the Service was a bit perfunctory and did in truth lack warmth and much charm.
The Espresso at the end was incredibly bitter and the Limoncello not really chilled.

Overall though, we enjoyed ourselves and most importantly, the Food was very good.

I would go again.

Amazing shellfish! Visited for my husband’s birthday with our two children. We had the shellfish platter between four of us which was plenty. It was the best seafood we’ve had in years. The lobster and scallops were to die for. We were disappointed by the desert having cheese and biscuits which was very bland and boring . We will definitely visit again but just wouldn’t have desert.

The food was outstanding - and exceeded expectations. We sat at the counter instead of a usual table (by choice) and this made less formal which was great. Located just off Borough market allowed us to almost be part of the street life which we liked. The service was a little strange.. only the barman smiled and was attentive; when we wanted food service it was slow to come and when we didn't it did! It wasn't that busy either. But the chef created course after course of great food so worth returning

Great location in London Bridge but just didnt cut it for me as a fish restaurant. I hate to say this, but I think the fish was frozen and defrosted - was a bit chewy and overcooked ( lobster risotto) & Monkfish kebabs.
had asked for a table outside that was vacant but told that it was prebooked and instead we could sit near the door so we could See outside.. . Not quite the same. The "prebooked" table of 4 never showed and rather than offering it to us, gave it to a scruffy looking couple who chain smoked outside. Maybe they were friends of the staff...?
Dont think I will return, especially as there are so many other great restaurants in Borough market.

Despite it being a Thursday evening the restaurant was full, which bears testimony to the quality of the food and service. Queries were dealt with efficiently and drinks were brought speedily to our table. We waited an acceptable length of time for our meal, long enough for us to know it was being cooked for us and not reheated. The mixed seafood grill was delicious although I do think the accompanying sauces could have been freshly made rather than from a bottle. My guest thought the fish and chips were great but was somewhat bemused by the minted mushy peas. (She liked them, but prefers the non-minted kind.) We weren’t hassled in any way and staff were always close enough by to ask for anything else.

Food was amazing. They catered for my allergies and we enjoyed it so much that we will be back. Only thing I would say is the space is quite cramped and can be a bit awkward but other than that a great place with a great variety. The wine selection was also lovely. Great evening overall

It would have been straight fives but we chose to sit outside as it was a lovely day, which obviously affects the ambiance and to a slight degree the service. My luncheon companion and I both had the Dover Sole, which was superb.

Visited Applebee's again after quite a while and found that it is still as good as ever. As you can expect from the date of this review, the occasion this time was Valentine's day and we made use of Applebee's Valentine's day menu. This time, our seating was all the way in the back next to the brick wall which gave us a wonderful level of intimacy.

The food itself was still of the very high standard that we've come to expect from Applebee's and did therefor not disappoint. From the Valentine's day menu we chose the grilled octopus and scallops on shell as a starter and the mixed seafood as main and it was simply glorious. Octopus was nice and crunchy, scallops were soft and juicy and the main course was equally divine. The dessert was a combination of three pieces that were equally delightful and put on an easy share dish.

In terms of service, the staff could not have been more accommodating. When we requested whether instead of the prosecco we could have a peach bellini instead they were more than happy to provide us with the bellini. The waitress who handled our table was eagle eyed enough to even double check the drinks when they were brought to us to ensure they weren't prosecco only (it's hard to tell from the glass) and equally managed to immediately step in when the wrong starter was brought to our table by mistake; Top marks for service! There is a reason their restaurant is always packed and if you are reading this my advice would be to book in advance for whatever occasion to intend to celebrate. We will certainly be returning in the future.

We ate lunch early so the restaurant was quiet but started to fill up as we were leaving. The restaurant is small so it could get busy later on and in the evening. The service was very good. The food was first class and there was a varied selection of fresh fish. It was freshly prepared and served hot. I have not seen halibut, which was a reasonably priced "special", on the menu anywhere for a long time. There was a good selection of wine by the glass, half litre and bottle. They were serving on an outside grill and there was a long queue which is a good recommendation. We will certainy return.
