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!

First visit to Fishworks in Swallow St, but have been to Fishworks in Marylebone quite a few times.
I tried to reserve a table at the Marylebone one for Saturday evening but they were full.Fortunately through Opentable I was able to get a table .l have not used Opentable before but found your system to work perfectly.Thank you.

Manager was aggressive. I am a Doctor and advised , using Open Table, that my wife suffered certain medical conditions through a fear of confined spaces. Normally the staff help by providing a suitable seating area mostly by a window. This time the manager overruled a waiters decision to meet this need and sited her looking at a wall just inched behind me. She also lied about the waiters decision. I have been to Fish Works ever since it started its business in Richmond on many times than I can recall. Quite frankly the way this manager dealt with this problem was a disgrace because other customers heard what was going on. So be warned. Aggressive behaviour shouldn’t be rewarded.

Fishworks is our favourite restaurant in London and we would recommend it to anyone who loves to eat fish. The fish is always cooked perfectly and there is plenty of variety of fish from which to choose and in which way it is cooked. The staff are quite exceptional, charming, knowledgeable and efficient. The menu has quite a number of delicious starters, mains and puddings, with wine to accompany each course if one wishes.

Great food! The open kitchen is an attractive feature but adds to the - already quite high - noise level. All in all a good experience, though.

Our second visit and yet again everything was spot on from start to finish. Food is superb, extremely fresh, beautifully seasoned, portions are just right and prices are very reasonable. special thanks to our young but knowledgeable waiter Michael who took an excellent care of us through the evening. We will certainly be returning.

Lovely staff and nice food, but the atmosphere and feeling of being a customer is the difference between a classy restaurant & just an expensive one. This one is expensive but not classy.

whilst the meal offer seems good value , the first course of mackerel pate was tiny and so off putting. The main fish and chips was good quality and size. Very noisy at lunchtime , with bare walls and no sound reducing materials evident.

Friendly and welcoming staff had clearly listened to my booking request for a quiet table (my guest is quite elderly and cannot hear well). We were early but that was not a problem and we had a lovely table for four - despite there being only two of us - in the middle of the room with a view of the street.
The fish - halibut - was beautifully cooked and presented and the staff swift and unobtrusive. My friend, who is interested in gin had the special gin cocktail and when she asked more about it was brought the bottle to look at.
The lemon tart with raspberry sorbet was mouth watering and light - with a thin pastry base - and a generous serving. We were allowed to drink our coffee unhurriedly and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Without wine the bill was £97 for 2 courses - which felt a bit steep. We were very impressed by the fabulous fish counter and watched oysters being shucked before we left.
