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!

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.

A return visit. We have visited many times over the last 11 years. So whether with family, friends or just the two of us it has been and was this last visit absolutely fabulous. Will be back soon.

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.

We enjoyed an excellent lunch here at the weekend. The atmosphere was nice and buzzy and staff very friendly. We stuck to 3 small bites to share instead of proper starters - all good, especially the crispy shrimp. Then, I had probably the best fish and chips ever (beer battered Haddock with really great chips and mushy peas) and our 12 year old very much enjoyed her smoked cod with scallion mash. My wife's Tuna steak was slightly less rare than hoped for but the quality of the fillet shone through nonetheless and she was overall very pleased with it. Small Affogato deserts were more than enough. This has been on our top list for the area for many years and appears still to be at the top of its game.

Really enjoyed our evening here. The food was delicious. The only thing that let it down a bit was the slowish service. That wouldn't put me off going again though

Good food, great staff, lovely atmosphere, was good to see Borough Market in full swing , Many people enjoying good food, pop on for a quick meal or relax and enjoy the surrounding's, we were at our table for over 2 hrs and never once felt like we were being rushed, food had a lovely fresh taste, well presented and cooked to perfection.
Big thanks to Fish, memorable experience.

Another very enjoyable evening at Fish, with excellent service. Every dish was very good apart from my Dover sole, which was small for the price paid (£33) and not very attractive or good to eat.

Went here for lunch on Easter Saturday.
We had the grilled fish and seasonal vegetables all of us. I had the salsa verde sauce on mine and it was divine.
The meals cost a little more here, but it is worth it for the super fresh produce and everything cooked to absolute perfection. We all left with empty plates! Service was great, until we had to wait 20 mins to pay for our bill which was already brought to us. Would definitely come again though.

I last visited Fish about 3 years ago and it was a good experience. I recently went there for lunch and chose skate. I was told there were 3 versions of skate and I chose the one on the fixed price menu without really looking. It arrived on a bed of mash and swimming in balsamic vinegar. My fault, but the dish did not look at all appetising and balsamic sauce was way too strong for a fish dish. However, my main issue was that I came out stinking of fried fish, and I mean stinking. I know that is to be expected in a fish restaurant with an open cooking area, but I believe there is a problem with the extraction system.

I am glad I booked as Fish! was packed even at 12.30pm on Saturday but the atmosphere was vibrant and the service from our waiter Michele was spot on, just the right level of attention to detail whilst letting us chat over each leisurely course without disruption apart from to fill the wine glasses. Menu is excellent, we were spoilt for choice and portion sizes were very good too.

Fish! has always been my go-to for seafood because you’re always gauranteed fresh, locally sourced seafood and ingredients. Our experience on Mother’s day was brilliant. Staff were friendly and very accommodating. Loved the new look and feel of the restaurant. Ordered the whole grilled lobster, which was perfectly done. Overall a fab lunch!!!

They have reduced the portion sizes and the food was in desperate need for seasoning. We've been going there for almost a decade but don't think we will after our latest visit, it's just not worth the price. Such a shame.
