Wonderful to have this place within walking distance. We shared 5 small plates between two of us and each one was delicious.

This was our second visit to Moxon's and once again it was fantastic. Great variety of small plates and everything we ordered was delicious - the crab risotto and potted haddock were particularly good. A lovely setting and attentive service too. Would definitely recommend.

This is the second time I've been here in two months. This time we tried the sweet potato gnocchi and haddock to start, followed by the roasted brill with a side of chips and broccoli. As before, the food was faultless. It's the best fish in London, I think. Will definitely be back before long.

We are reasonably regular Moxons eaters, and in fact are coming again next month. The previous visit was fantastic, this time less so. We are not sure what it was, but the food was less memorable and no 'wow' factor - I think the menu (we always have a selection of small plates) was perhaps less adventurous than before and the cooking not as good or tasty? The fact that our favourite dish was the cup of prawns probably sums it up. Anyhow it had been our favourite place to eat in East Dulwich, so we will give it another go next month!

Really great food, loved spending time with my family in here. Wine was amazing and the service was friendly. We had a great time slot and they were understanding that we were running 15 mins late. Can't wait to go again and take more friends and family.

So good I was tempted to keep it a secret! Perfectly located near the cinema for date night, the cosy space is warm and inviting. Tables are much too small for all the delicious sharing plates, but the charming serving staff somehow juggle all the tableware to make it work. All the dishes are given equal attention - sides are not ‘also rans’, but of course the spotlight is on the seafood; gently pickled herring, sweet Atlantic prawns and the palest taramasalata. Foodie heaven. The wine list is surprisingly good too.

The best seafood we have had in along time, the oysters were amazing and so was the monkfish cheeks served in a vindaloo sauce, then came the star of the show the Gilt Head Bream as part of a Sunday Roast Fish lunch, so different and yet so delightful and tasty and fresh, cant wait to visit again and would definitely recommend. Two very happy customers, although i was slightly disappointed that they had taken the chocolate pear tart off the menu for some reason.

Another delightful evening as this fabulous neighbourhood gem. Next door to East Dulwich’s fabulous fishmonger Moxons, the ingredients are exceptional, fresh and in season. Diners are offered a choice of several smaller plates or a roasted fish of the day to share. We chose the smaller plates and enjoyed tuna tataki, grilled scallops, smoked mackerel pâté, salt cod mash and Swiss racklette on toast along with a fresh green salad and all washed down with a very drinkable Riesling.
It’s a great addition to Lordship Lane and despite being cosy and feeling somewhat acquainted with the diners on the tables next to you, it makes for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Good range of options considering you are in a fish restaurant, we only had a selection of small plates and liked them. It is quite creative, it's not michelin stars material but certainly interesting, the wine list was a good match for the food too. On the negative side, we found the tables a little too close to one an other. In our opinion, by Dulwich standard, this is Top 3 by far, so great addition (The Palmerston and Yama-Momo being the other 2).

Our guests said that the ambiance reminded him of his favourite Paris Bistro but that the food was better. We also liked the fact that the noiselevel was kept low so one could have a decent conversation. We were there on a Tuesday evening and it was packed but the service was done with a smile.
