The restaurant is cosy and the atmosphere really nice. We had a simple, romantic dinner there and really enjoyed the experience. The service was special, as for the food....mindblowing starters with excellent fresh fish, while the mains were okay but not as good as the starters. We'll be back.

As is common in most large cities, especially in London, some small outfits seem to have the delusion of grandeur by which they believe that they serve gold on their plates instead of food. I was at dinner with my wife who enjoys raw fish as a rule so I ordered six oysters and a mixed Spring Salad. For Myself... More

Two of us went for lunch. As you enter you see the fresh fish (which is delivered fresh daily) displayed on an ice counter. We ordered sparkling water and bread with marinated olives. We started with 12 oysters to share (£29.95), which were excellent and accompanied by two glasses of champagne. One ordered cod fillet with cabbage and bacon (£21.60)... More

This looked very good but it failed to live up to expectations. The oysters were good but the main course was a bit of disappointment. It didn't taste "fresh" and the lobster was mainly pasta. Compared to some of the South Coast fish resturants this was expensive and not up to standard. Sorry!

Chose it for a quick early dinner before the theatre. It wasn't busy (midweek) and we were seated without a problem. Two of us both had grilled sea bass which was fantastic, a side each and shared a starter. No complaints at all - very good food, perfectly cooked and all fresh. We were out of there in 40 minutes.... More

This branch of Fishworks is in Swallow Street, which is a quiet side street off Piccadilly - it's neighbours include the more up-market Bentley's, Veeraswami and Gaucho. We have often had lunch here as it is so convenient for the main shopping areas of the West End and one stop on the tube from Victoria Station. The restaurant is comfortable... More

Yes, like most of your reviewers, we found the quality of the fish and the cooking excellent. The restaurant gets busy - it was lunchtime - and quite noisy. It also has a fishmongers as you entrance, so you could try a new fish and buy some to take home. Expect to pay for quality - and fish isn't a... More

A wide variety of fish and shellfish well cooked with imaginative ingredients and nicely presented. Pleasant modern space - but ask for a table on the window side of the restaurant. Efficient helpful staff. Give yourself a treat and have the crumble for dessert.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
