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!

We were put on a table inside as we were late and were told our booking was cancelled. Even though there was lots of free tables outside and we specifically asked if it’s possible to sit us there. I specifically looked and the tables were never filled, the hostess was disappointingly rude:

None of the food we ordered had any salt in it. It was bland and overpriced. Paid £21 for one squid (literally two little pieces) with a handful of green beans.

Had the Halibut with mussels and clams as well as the sea bream with salsa verde. Really liked both but the sea bream was more soft and tender. The staff were really attentive and filled up our glasses. Overall the ambience was superb - great for a date!

Very enjoyable meal at Fish! Our waitress was attentive but not intrusive. Decent space between tables which meant we did not listen to other conversations. Food was spot on with a good choice of dishes. Will definitely come back!

Lovely catch up with friends I've not seen for over a year, so we treated ourselves to lunch at Fish! as it was a special occasion. Lovely leisurely late lunch and delicious food. As it was not too busy it was nice to feel unhurried and relaxed. Good choice of wines. Friendly staff.

As always Fish provided excellent service, food and wine, despite arriving early a table was quickly found for us. The staff were friendly and very responsive to our requests, and the menu offered an excellent choice.

Good meal, decent wine list. Very quiet with so few people about. Decent speed of service but poor attention between courses.

A very enjoyable evening apart from the noise level. It would help if the background music was turned off when the restaurant is busy. It seems that everybody is forced to speak loudly as otherwise their friends cannot hear.

Have wanted to try this for a very long time - definitely worth it. Staff are all friendly and attentive. Food was really nice - brought a good timely intervals.

Ambience was so nice sitting by the cathedral but the buzz of people walking past.

Will defiantly go back.

It was nice but not amazing. The food was a little under-whelming and lacking seasoning and the room is looking a bit tatty. Service was lovely though.

We had another lovely lunch at Fish! The glass dining room by Southwark Cathedral, on the edge of Borough Market, is gorgeous and light, you feel part of the hustle and bustle and history around you. The menu offers an excellent choice of fish, we all enjoyed ours (2 turbot specials and 1 cod with clams & mussels), cheese was generous and my sticky toffee pudding was delicious. The welcome and service was excellent. Tables are well spaced and organised in these pandemic times. They have a good outside area too with shades and heaters. It's a 'proper' restaurant with prices to match, and all the side orders etc add up, but the quality is excellent and I recommend it for sure.

Love this restaurant and always recommend it , but this time it was not good . Wrong order came for me and my colleague didn’t want to eat hers alone. They assured her that they would cook a fresh one but when it arrived it was clear it had just been kept warm . My Fish was raw in parts so are around the edge !
Both course were not cheap £54 including a bottle of water ! Should have just got a sandwich!!!

We both had mussels. They smelled terrible, and were dry. When the lovely waiter asked how our meal was we realised we can both independently stopped eating it. I admitted it was inedible. He was very lovely, and took them away. He replaced them with some other bits and bobs - we got squid and calamari. Also not great, but edible. Would not return.
