Casual
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 ate on a Friday lunchtime. The food was excellent and the service was good. Overall it was good value and it felt good to get out and eat in a restaurant again after the last few months. The social distancing measures were fine and did not overly distract from the meal.
My only negative comment is nothing to do with the restaurant itself but rather the lack of diners which made the atmosphere rather flat. Come on people, get out there and give our hospitality business the boost it needs and deserves.

We visited on a Saturday night and should have known by how quiet it was.. lovely staff, safe measures considering corona etc.

But the food just missed the mark, over cooked, bland and no where near worth the money.

I had the halibut special and it was so overcooked it didn’t even flake. The whitebait were greasy, completely unseasoned and didn’t taste fresh. Calamari was good but that’s all.

I won’t be returning unless I hear that they’ve fixed the kitchen! Such a shame.

Pleasant and relaxing lunch with attentive service. Swordfish was cooked perfectly but cod in fish and chips was slightly overcooked. Limited choice of lagers but bottle of Malbec was very good.

Nice to be back post lock down . We were a little tense at first due to first meal out. Impressed with the gel, and general Covid measures. Toilets clean. Everything very clean. Waitress in mask. 4 of us had lovely lunch in the outside area. Food good with plenty of specials. Had some Oysters to start which were plump and tasty. Would be nice to have a choice/selection of Oysters from different places. Great selection of wines and very good service throughout. Not cheap but good standard. We are back!

I have eaten at Fish many times but the food wasn't quite as good as usual. My friend had the fish pie which surprisingly had a lot of mushroom in it - not what you usually find. I had the haddock and chips but the mushy peas weren't as creamy as usual and in fact were a little hard. The fish was excellent but the chips were a little dry. The ice cream was superb.

First dinner out after returning from a long stay abroad. Good food and speedy service, not to many people in the place.
As a starter we had fried calamari and seared tuna, followed by
fish and chips with Dover sole fillet (fish of the day) and fish pie.
For dessert sticky toffee pudding and some amaretto.

Nice dinner, we will be back!

Fish and chips and service excellent. Salmon well done rather than medium as requested. Tables well spaced and not at all busy which made for a good ambience (in the past we have found the tables a bit cramped and the noise level too high). Overall a fantastic first out of home dining experience since the start of lockdown!

This was my first outing after the lifting of the lockdown. I must say that I was extremely impressed by the safety and hygiene precautions put in place in order to provide a safe and secure dining experience.

Furthermore, the service and quality of the food was exceptional.

I definitely recommend and will visit again.

First Sunday opening for Covid easing. We arrived 5 mins early and all staff were having a team brief. That was a very good sign. We were welcomed and had to sanitize our hands, complete a contact sheet and taken to table. The staff clearly knew what to do in the new protocols, knew how to apply and carry them out and were very kind and reassuring. We ordered wine and food. Staff throughout were great.
The social distancing was efficient and the food was very good indeed.
We have been to fish a few times and this visit was really enjoyable and worth doing.
We tried to find something that could be improved but could not think of anything.

I have been to Fish a number of times over the years and this was my first choice to book.
Apart from it being empty which wasn’t the fault of the restaurant, I must say that I was extremely disappointed.
Whilst the soup starter was very enjoyable, I ordered as my main grilled Halibut.
On asking I was informed the vegetable of the day was kale. No option of an alternative and a bit trendy but I decided to try it.
The plate arrived and duly tucked in. The kale was nothing but twigs and hard stalks and tasted dreadful; I left it.
The grilled Halibut was so over cooked and dry it was like eating paper. I had not eaten all day and was starving so I ploughed on with it. It didn’t get any better.
Having finished, I decided that rather than complain, I would just vote with my feet and never return. There are bountiful bars and restaurants in Borough and Fish is relying on reputation alone now regardless as to what it serves up.

An ok meal, nothing special, if this is the best fish & chips in London then judges couldn’t have travelled much further than Borough Market! 7 pm on a Saturday evening, why do restaurants insist on seating all the table for 2 so close together, I now know the life story of the couple sitting next to us. Service was OK, drink waiters were poor, struggled to get ice for water, and bottle of wine was taken to incorrect table. Won’t rush back, better dinning experience in the area, if you want a good fish restaurant go to Smiths in nearby Wapping.
