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.
Superb food and dining but wine prices need a lot to be desired pity as everything else first class
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.
We had another fantastic lunch, I had the seared tuna steak which was served with peppercorn sauce, which I would normally have on steak but I thought I would give it a try and I am so glad I did it was absolutely delicious !
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.
The best fish restaurant in Newcastle. Lots of choice, well cooked, fabulous service. It’s a gem
Booked at short notice but able to get a table at the bar. Food and service, excellent.
Had another excellent meal here on Friday. We love sitting at the counter so you can watch your food being prepared in front of you. Staff always very professional and food great. Will be back soon.
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!!
Fantastic food and service as always. Lovely atmosphere and great selection on the menu and specials board. Favourite place to eat!
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.
Excellent on all fronts. Monkfish in bone was delicious. Ignore that it's in Fenwick, it's worth it
Amazing service very friendly and fantastic food. Can’t remember the name of the woman who served us but she was blonde and was brilliant, giving me lots of info for my first oyster
I come here once a month - food is always delicious, service excellent and friendly
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.
Excellent menu, delicious food and lovely atmosphere.
Food is always really really good. Great place for people and chef watching! I really shouldn’t have had that large glass of wine but it was such a relaxing place. Highly recommended
Staff are always helpful and accommodating and the sea food is always to a excellent standard
Great place for afternoon lunch and people watching
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.
Popped in for a casual lunch, service and food Was perfect as always.
Amazing food, fabulous fizz collection and excellent service.
Love coming here for oysters as they are always top notch, even better value when its happy hour
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.
Everything about this place is amazing ❤️
Food was delicious,staff were very helpful
Will definitely be returning soon x
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.
Love this place. Always great food exactly how you ask for it. Friendly and lovely staff.
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.
Favourite restaurant in Newcastle. Amazing fresh produce cooked in an effective, simple way.
Great food, great service consistently good. You want seafood - go here
Love it here
If you love seafood, this place will never disappoint. We had an amazing lunch!
Lovely food. Lovely staff. Excellent service. Very tasty.
My favourite restaurant in Newcastle right now - the fish is incredible!
Excellent fresh fish dishes and superb service. Will return when next in Newcastle
truly exceptional, best seafood you’ll find in newcastle
A favourite place to grab a bite to eat, quaff a nice glass of wine and enjoy some goss.
Best langoustine we’ve had for quite some time. All the food was exceptional as usual, great staff and service.
I took my mam here for her birthday and the service was amazing, all the staff were super friendly the food was stunning and presented well. I would definitely recommend eating here and I will be returning very soon.
Thanks for a lovely experience
