Fishworks - Swallow Street is an absolute essential for seafood lovers. The restaurant offers a traditional wet fish counter where you can buy fish to take home and cook yourself, or you can select any fish or crustacean with our fishmonger and have it cooked there and then to your liking.

This chic stylish restaurant is only minutes away from the bustle of Piccadilly hidden away in an exclusive street. The whole restaurant opens its glass window façade doors creating a fantastic atmosphere great for corporate dining and enjoying a pre-theatre meal before hitting the West End.

Blackboards display our daily landings or diners can choose from our classic menu with delights such as piled-high fruits de mer, scrumptious South Coast scallops or simply the best gourmet cod and chips you will ever taste!

    Food and service were above average, pricier than it should have been - cooking was bland and unimpressive

    Excellent food. We had to ask for the lunch offer menu, and the wine is a bit pricey, but overall delicious fish, very good service and great ambience and noise level! I’ve been before and I’ll be back again!

    I very much recommend the mussels. The Sea Bream tasted excellent, though somewhat marred by the fact that the skin was stuck to fast to the fish to get off cleanly.

    An outstanding meal and great service, a fish lovers dream ! I loved the fact you could choose the fish direct from the counter yourself and choose how you wanted it prepared. The scallops are sublime.

    Celebrating my husbands 60th birthday. From the moment we arrived til we left the welcome and attention to us was fabulous. Our waiter was engaging and informative and fun. Also the chef at the fresh fish counter helped us choose a delicious bass and turbot to share and was beautifully cooked and served. A really memorable evening Thank you

    Perfect place for a delicious early evening meal after an afternoon at the nearby RA Summer Exhibition. Starters of Devilled whitebait and Tartare of Tuna both very good. Mains of tuna and turbot. Tuna excellent turbot not so much, rather a small piece of fish and rather tasteless. Veg accompaniment and side order of carrots and chips very good. Will go again.

    Felt rushed as soon as we sat down kept asking us what wanted didn’t get chance to read menu had to keep saying give us more time. When did order our mains my steak was cooked wrong I ordered medium it came out rare had the cheek to ask me if I just want it put on for longer? I said I expect a fresh piece @ £48 Then I sat there and sat there my husband & sons had finished their meals and I still didn’t have mine, in the end got sick of waiting told waitress to forget it and asked for the bill. It was a very expensive meal £260 considering my main was taken off. It was a treat from our sons for their dads 60 th & Father’s Day. It ruined our evening. Gutted and so sorry for them as they wanted it to be special for their Dad, I would not return there.

    Fishworks - Swallow StreetResponded on 23 June 2022We are extremely sorry that you did not enjoy your visit, and that we did not do our best on this occasion.

    Fishworks - Swallow StreetResponded on 23 June 2022We are sorry to read this review as we did not charge your table for anything that you did not have. Furthermore we have removed the 2 bottles of wine from your bill as a gesture of a goodwill. We are even more sorry to read that review after how you have treated members of our staff after we kindly pointed out that you have tried to take away something that is restaurant's property. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We wish you all the best, FishWorks Team

    The restaurant was very quiet, 3 tables were taken when we arrived. Waiting staff chatting and had to get their attention to order. Ordered some bread, olives and taramasalata plus main courses. Main courses came quickly with no sign of the starters we had ordered. Mains were taken away and starters arrived except no olives. Had to call them back over to question when the olives might arrive. Not cheap and it was quiet so no excuse.

    It is always a pleasure to return to this branch of Fishworks. The food was of its usual high standard. However he tables are quit close together. Occasionally they get knocked as diners and staff. Pass by. Yesterday it was uncomfortably noisy as there were tables either side of us where the diners had loud voices.
