The produce used is of excellent quality
Whilst our lobster was over cooked and chewy I believe this to have been just bad luck on the day

I’ve been a regular here for some time and there seems to be a drastic change in the service and quality.
We had specifically booked seats at the bar. But on arrival we’re told they were booked and it was a first come, first served basis. There was 3 vacant seats at the bar, we were told we weren’t allowed them even though we were the first come as their policy stated.
Had to wait to be served, poor attitude by the young girl who served us. The guy who took food order forgot a dish of ours and we had to remind him twice we had ordered it. Felt really let down by the place as it’s not cheap.

First visit but it won’t be the last. Polite helpful staff and the most delicious food. Very generous portions and in a lovely friendly atmosphere. A glass of wine to go with it and wonderful memories to last a lifetime. Would recommend anyone to visit and find out what a gem it is.

Unfortunately, this is a venue I cannot keep all to myself and my family as it is just too good. Book, be seated and experience the real treat of excellent seafood being cooked in front of you.

Always excellent and didn’t disappoint this time either. XL skewers continue to be the best prawns I’ve ever had. A restaurant for Newcastle to be proud of.

My first time eating in the Fenwick's food hall but it won't be the last! Lunch of shared small plates with my friend was delicious and fresh served by attentive staff. The only slight down side was the menu and specials board had so many great options that it was difficult to choose!!

This place is beyond good! Donna, David and team are peerless in their delivery of the highest quality of service. The chefs are quite literally wizards of their trade. If you like fish then you should be there! We shall return again and again.

This is one of the best seafood places in Newcastle. It's small and only high bar chairs, but well worth it. If it's too busy go to the ajoining Steakhouse and ask for the Saltwater menu (it's the same kitchen).

Try the halibut. Juicy as.

Visit for a birthday treat. Very quiet. Ordered the seafood platter and was not disappointed. Delicious and plentiful. Will definitely visit again to sample the menu. Our server was happy to answer our questions about where the produce was sourced and we had a most enjoyable experience.

One of my favourite restaurants anywhere. It's a nice buzz at the bar and in the food hall, and interesting to watch the chefs opening oysters, shelling the langoustines, and filleting the fish. The food is always perfect - it's just the best place to eat fish that I know of. The menu is simple but classic with an emphasis on showcasing the freshness of the produce. Great wine list too. And always attentive, informed, and personable service.
