When a restaurant makes the guidebooks I am a little leery. Fishy Fishy didn't disappoint. A reservation for this very busy restaurant which is a must. It was bright and crowded but the food and service were superb. We went with several seafood appetizers instead of dinners because we couldn't decide. Loved everything! Thumbs up to Foodors for the recommendation

Early 645pm sitting in a quiet new year Wednesday evening - we had the full attention of the kitchen and waiting staff. Big dining room which while nice and attractive, can seem a bit cavernous when quiet. We had a lovely dinner - brill and sole - and the service was excellent. When so quiet however, the food can arrive... More

We visited in July and enjoyed both the food and the drinks. We had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. The bartender was very accommodating and worked with me to find a drink I would enjoy . . . he did not disappoint. The food was very good and we all enjoyed our dinners. My daughter and husband...

Ambiance lovely. Staff very good. Wine good. 2 of 4 main courses at lunch time very good. However the other 2 very disappointing. Although the sauce was good the mussels were very bad and definitely did not reach our expectations. Small, shrivelled and some were sticky in the shells. Did not make a fuss as was with guests. I have... More

Visited here for lunch recently and was highly impressed. Excellent friendly and efficient staff - owners were also working that day and gave us a warm welcome. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and the food was delicious. They really know how to make the most of fresh fish by adding fresh tasty ingredients but still keeping the distinct flavour of...

We had a really nice lunch here. I had the open prawn and smoked salmon- the quality of the seafood was indeed very good. The salad itself was fresh and a little uninteresting but I enjoyed it all the same. The seafood crumble had lovely seafood in it- this was served with a large portion of very buttery mash which...

Nice food and great setting. Perhaps due to off season the menu was a little limited but with that said the food and drink we ordered was great. Husband commented the scallops were the best he has had

We had a wonderful late lunch here yesterday, very impressed with the quality and the portion size of the food. I ordered the plaice off of the special menus which was cooked perfectly and not a single bone! Staff were also very friendly, would go again if we were here.

Thank craftyshutterbug
