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.

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.

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.

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

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.
