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!

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.

I and 2 friends booked a table for 7.30pm last Saturday and arrived early to have a drink at the bar but they gave us our table straight away and we settled down with our wine. The restaurant is very airy due to the large windows and has a nice ambience. The food was fish fantastic and very fresh!
We had a lovely waitress named Maria who was very attentive and happy to help with anything we asked. All the staff were very professional throughout.

We had a fantastic evening and never felt rushed. Even though the table is meant to be for 1 and a half hours we had it for much longer. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return in the near future.

I came up from Ramsgate with my wife to have a special birthday lunch with her at Fish as we did last year. We had virtually the same meal a year ago and was deeply disappointed that the quality, quantity and service were no where near as good as that of my last visit. I doubt if I wold come again and would not recommend it to anyone.

A couple of items were not available off the menu which is fair enough, however we did not know this until we tried to order them.

The food was okay, somewhat undersalted. Service was relatively poor, too few staff so the staff there were seemed rushed off their feet.

No effort to acknowledge the special occasion despite it being on the booking notes and calling to confirm.

Great location , and fish fresh from the market . Nice staff and welcome for a busy Saturday lunch .But the prices . I did not check before I ordered but £10 for a Bloody Mary !!. Food was good but not exceptional . The noise was more than energetic, and the green house effect made it a bit too hot on a hot day . Maybe better and calmer for an evening meal if you want. to splash out .LOL fish/splash !!

Very nice dinner at Fish on Wednesday evening. Service and food both good, I'd prefer a slightly bigger table, don't like being cramped. Would recommend for anyone in the area and looking for a good meal that's not too expensive.

Really enjoyed Fish and dined during a quiet early evening. Service was very pleasant. My grilled lobster was a bit overcooked but not so badly that a little melted butter couldn't make up for it.

Fish! is a lovely fish restaurant and the food is generally very nice. We enjoyed the fish and chips and everything that came with it.

I scored it down because the portions were quite small. We ordered some mussel popcorn and crispy shrimp and both were very small portions. Whilst the fish and chips was an okay portion, my calamari and my wifes langoustines were very modest.

We enjoyed an early evening dinner in fish. Our two courses were way above average with fresh ingredients contributing greatly to the dining experience. We found an excellent white wine on the wine list that accompanied our food perfectly.
Special mention must be made of our waiter who was efficient, knowledgeable and quietly attentive.
