Seafood
Designed for seafood lovers – Saltwater Fish Company, situated in Fenwick Foodhall, operates as both a Fish Bar and Fishmonger with a ‘we cook what we sell, we sell what we cook’ philosophy. There’s no fuss – just a passion for seafood, simple yet creative cooking and friendly service.

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.

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.

Lovely food - we both had the moules and frites and no bother changing the dairy based sauce to wine/oil based for my partner. It’s the experience too that makes it unique- seeing the chefs prepare the food AND seeing what others are getting and thinking ‘I’ll try that next time’ and there will be a next time because it’s soooo good. 5 star service

Absolutely spectacular seafood! We had food from the specials board that was recommended to us by the staff and it was great watching the chefs making our food. A little gem!

Fenwick Food Hall has a nice vibe which you’re part of at the seafood restaurant. There are no traditional tables but sitting at the bar was comfortable and allowed for a good view of the surroundings. We booked which would be recommended as seats are limited. Food choices were amazing and the oysters, goujons, monkfish and lobster were all delicious. Along with a bottle of white wine we thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit.

The food was fine but it was definitely not service with a smile or even a warm welcome. Maybe it was because it was Christmas Eve, it felt like stress levels were high amongst the staff. Considering how much it cost (we were celebrating a birthday and had a bottle of champagne too) I would expect a far bigger customer focus.

The menu is always changing and the standard is excellent of all of the individual items and the dishes on offer. The service is second to none. Staff informative and very helpful. Watching the staff prepare all items fresh in front of you is a treat to behold.

I would highly recommend to family fiends and business colleagues.

Amazing fruits de mer although it should state the correct price for hot rather than a surprise on the bill. It would also be good if it stated that it does contain meat but these were just minor for our visit. Great wine list too.

This was our first visit, and I have been raving about it ever since. I love seafood, but finding anywhere as accessible, with such a good range and quality is near impossible...until now. Wine was great as well.
I have already booked my next visit!

Out table overlooked the cooking area where a very busy chef was supported by very efficient staff. The oysters were expensive but lovely and well worth the cost and we both had turbot which we watched being cooked to perfection. Not many restaurants serve fresh turbot but somehow this restaurant always manages to have it and it is always exquisite, in my view" the king of fish."
