we visited on a busy saturday night, pre booked a table so we could walk straight in. in my opinion it's better to book later in the evening if you like a quiet mealtime. it's very busy and it goes that there is a lot of noise. a lovely menu, we all had something different. the wine menu isn't extensive,...

We didn't book but knew we wanted to eat here from looking at previous reviews. The waiting staff found us a table on a busy Thursday night at 6pm so I can only imagine how busy it must get on a weekend. The waitress wrote on the menu what fresh fish was available, we both chose the lemon sole, myself... More

On our last night of holiday we ate at Rockfish, fish (grilled) tasted so fresh. Excellent to have local fish choice (I had the pollock). Kids enjoyed themselves with the"squid pack". All food excellent, staff attentive and location brilliant.

We were recommended by a local whilst staying in Dartmouth for a week. The staff were very friendly, attentive and the food was excellent. Lovely nautical decor, best fish and chips I've had in many a year. Thank you

We were welcomed and shown to our table, and the friendly (74 years old she later told us) waitress immediately brought our menus, told us what fish was available, warned us that sadly the oven was not working...so no scallops, which was what I had planned to have. She offered... More

Family day out on the steam train, then the ferry, culminating in a fish and chip lunch. There is nothing to complain about here, all I can say is, staff, food excellent, well done!!

Great food , fantastic desert , great location. Just when we called in at 6pm on a quiet Monday evening. The head of house said " have you a reservation, no we haven't I replied. I will then check to see if we have space" there was only 4 people in there. That does wind me up as I asked... More
