Would definitely recommend this place - food delicious, especially the main fish to share and the cheeses. Nice relaxed atmosphere and didn't feel rushed at any point. Only points for improvement really would be a bit more space between the tables towards the front (though appreciate this might not be possible), and a little bit more generous with the cheese plate

Once again Next Door (to Moxons) did not disappoint.

A slightly rough start as we had a short wait as our table wasn't ready. We were soon seated though followed by drinks and bread.

Order taken and wine followed. They even offered a taste before we chose half a bottle which I thought was a nice touch.

Couldn't fault the service or the food. Starters were tasty and the main roasted Hake and sides were perfectly cooked and expertly deboned at the table

The service was attentive throughout without being intrusive

A great meal out.

Lovely place. Food was excellent and had a great evening there. The only thing is that the Oysters were opened vert messily with some parts missing. But then again, I didn't complain as I didn't want to spoil the lovely ambiance of the evening. However, this is is why I don't give 5 stars

A lovely birthday meal for my partner. We struggled to restrain ourselves to just 5 dishes to share and it would have been all too easy to completely pig out and order everything.
Will definitely return!

Don't like this move to tapas type food. You end up not knowing how much to order and you spend far more than you want to spend and sometimes don't even feel full. What has happened to old fashioned main course at a good price?

There were only 2 'proper' main course on offer and they were quite pricey.

Would much prefer a traditional menu. Seems as if tapas style food appearing everywhere may be driven more by needs of restaurant to control stock than customers' wishes. But only my opinion - just disappointed as was expecting a traditional fish restaurant.

The food was really delicious - we got five sharing plates and some chips for two of us and every plate was so tasty and interesting. Highly recommend the crab risotto and scallops, also the mackerel macaroni was very tasty.

We had starters of tuna tataki and crab risotto. Both were nice. We shared a brill and sides of broccoli and chips which was very tasty. Finished with yummy rhubarb possets. Service was very good. £34 did seem quite a lot for the fish.

Delicious fresh food served well in a calm relaxed ambience with good acoustics. Had five of the tapas sharing plates - especially loved the large plump scallops and red snapper and mussel stew. The rhubarb posset was divine with just the right tang. Will go again to try other dishes.

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!

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.
