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.
truly exceptional, best seafood you’ll find in newcastle
Great fish, well cooked and served with care. We had the turbot and the mixed seafood grill - both absolutely delicious.
We brought our daughter for lunch this week and she enjoyed it as much as we did last week, everything is so very fresh and cooked to perfection, the service is exceptional and the atmosphere is fantastic!
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.
Great as usual!
The spicy monkfish was delicious and thoroughly recommended. Lovely restaurant with quality food and service with plenty of dishes to try. Looking forward to going back again soon.
Always a great lunch, thanks. Nothing we have not enjoyed.
Great food a good choice of meals there was some issues with some ingredients for our order but i understand the issues with fresh seafood good overall
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!
Fabulous lunch with the family. Great service too. We will be back.
Love this restaurant as I love seafood. The seafood is 100% fresh.
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."
Lovely afternoon spent with my 2 adult children to celebrate my son’s birthday. Food was delicious as ever, staff friendly and attentive
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.
