Saltwater Fish Company
With counter seating for 19 people and an open kitchen our Fish Bar offers casual seafood dining – we’re talking oysters from different beds, small dishes to delight, large plates to satisfy, French-style Fruits de Mer Platters to share and a blackboard full of daily specials. Champagnes and wines, too, of course – all fish friendly.
At our Fishmonger’s counter it’s all rather simple. We sell the finest selection of seasonal fish and shellfish whilst sharing tips and recipes and our well-stocked wet fish counter provides the raw materials for our regularly changing menus.
Love this place, best fish restaurant in Newcastle.
We visited during the evening and enjoyed good seafood, service, wine selection and a good choice of dishes. Being in a department store it lacks the ambience one might experience in a restaurant but that would not deter us from going again. It has a relaxed, quality 'vibe.
Definitely recommend this. It was recommended to me just the day before so I count myself very lucky to get two bar stools when I wanted to eat by booking online at dawn. The food exceeded my expectations, the fixed price menu had super choices and I could have happily ordered any of the starters or mains. My mackerel pate was outstanding and salmon superb. Too full for a dessert but I had hoped to! Very friendly, helpful service, cannot fault the Saltwater Fish Company and will certainly return.
Very relaxing lunch
Amazing as always! Love the place... definitely my number one in Newcastle ❤️
Second visit to the restaurant and as usually lovely, nice atmosphere with attentive staff and great food and wine ! Thank you , I will be heading back soon !
Made a booking for Saturday 09/11/19 and despite of asking for usual sitting area the man who attended us (not the usual pleasant lady) refused to accommodate us other than in a v busy seat at the entrance. A big disappointment on one of our fav restaurants. Result, booking cancelled and moved to a more accommodating restaurant. Hugely disappointed!!
Always lovely food, staff are so friendly, always made welcome. Highly recommended
The staff were excellent and the food was absolutely delicious. The selection of wines is really good too. A fabulous experience which we will definitely repeat! Highly recommended.
Excellent food but bit pricey for food served at a bar counter

Perfect lunch as usual well done to all who work so hard to make our day special thank you
Had a gorgeous lunch here with my Mum. The food was fabulous and the service was too. I will be coming back to do the same but with a glass of wine next time!
Quality produce ,very fresh,perhaps a little more expensive than I would expect,however a nice treat.
Lovely fresh simple but tasty ingredients. Service excellent asking if we would like a test in between courses and to advise them when we were ready.
Delicious food and wine and attentive, friendly and helpful service.
Once again fab sea food coked to perfection,This is possibly the best Sea food Restaurant in Newcastle
Quality food served in a beautiful; setting by ex staff
Wonderful meal, best scallops and tuna tartare i’ve Ever had thoroughly enjoyed it!
Superb food with exceptional service. Quite literally in a league of its own!
We love this fish restaurant. Five star but not Michelin prices.
Delicious food. Not much for gluten intolerance but staff were great and offered me their sister restaurant menu too which had plenty of choices. Great to watch food being prepared.
Amazing atmosphere and knowledgeable staff. we had a mix of small plates all of which were exceptionally tasty, well prepped and cooked
cannot recommend enough
Good fresh fish cooked well. Served in a pleasant informal ambience with excellent service. A few more vegetables would have been welcome.
Great freshly prepared fish dishes , prepared in front of you. No hiding for the chefs! The service was excellent, very attentive & able to answer ALL of our many questions. Excellent value. A great place to meet friends for an excellent lunch
As always, this restaurant is a pleasure to eat at. I am never disappointed with the food or service and will continue to recommend to friends.
A "go to" destination for excellent food, set in the bustle of Fenwick's food hall. Delightful fish and well prepared and cooked to order as you watch. Recommended.
Great food and nice atmosphere in the food hall, which was fun to wander around while we were waiting for our table. Good deals on for 2 or 3 courses and nicely attentive staff waiting on
A really nice place to eat. We enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching the kitchen in action. The hake was fabulous but the fruits de mer less so. It was described as having lobster, langoustines and cockles but none of these were present. Instead lots and lots of cooked mussels, which are lovely when hot in garlic and white wine but don’t work as well cold. The king prawns, although big on size were not big on taste - small cold water shell-on prawns would have been so much better. All that said, we still had a great time.
The food was excellent the only problem was that the staff continually talked across about their personal goings on and problems with till
Excellent food, wine and service. A must for fish and seafood lovers. Will definitely return.
Love coming here for food when we are in Newcastle, sometimes just make a special trip so we can call in for oysters!
highly recommended, the food is amazing
The food was so fresh and so much choice!
We had the La Met with Lobster there was so much we just couldn’t finish it all!!
Excellent food, great service. Thank goodness limited wi-fi to keep folks using their phone to a minimum.
Always have a great time at this venue. Our grandchildren love it. Staff are always welcoming and food delicious.
I was so disappointed to find that I had booked on line - when I arrived I was seated as a pair facing the wall which I did not really like - there were 8 empty seats at the main counter - the waiter told me they were reserved - on as a party of 3 and two parties of two. I asked as we had arrived before the other two parties of two if we could take their seats and they be allocated ours - he said no - this was not possible with barely any explanation. I then said that we did not wish to eat in that spot and would go elsewhere - the waiter could not of cared less - FABULOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE NOT!!!!!
I did complain to the manager and to be honest we are good customers spending an average of £150 for lunch if you can afford to loose us then so be it

We had a marvellous experience it was our first visit but will not be our last
Nice food. Friendly staff. But bar stools not ideal. Our stools were wobbly and felt we were going to fall off. Food and service was excellent
Tremendous food, and reasonably priced. The seafood platter was so tasty!
Very relaxed atmosphere and great if you like to people watch 😁Definitely go back
Never fails to impress. Flawless service, fresh food of the highest quality, excellent wine selection. Perfect location.
