Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The most perfect fish and chips. Great casual dining. You would expect good fish and chips in Brixham, but these were truly outstanding. Fish cooking was perfect with delicious light batter and lovely chips.

Lovely meal for the three of us on our last night in Brixham. My eleven year old twins had the set menu (2 courses for £16) the fish was lovely and white and the batter crispy...order was slightly messed up (I'd ordered starters but all...3 main courses arrived together - no starter) but not a problem as my main course, the monkfish and prawn curry was more than enough and very tasty. Desserts were good too, A bit pricey I'd say, but we all enjoyed it so would come back again on our next visit to Brixham.More

Wow, got the chance to try the new menu items, the new burger in the menu was homemade and in a beautiful brioche bun, the extras complimented the burger superbly, never tasted coleslaw so good…cannot fault the chips either, perfect fluffy potato with a great...crunch, proper fish and chip shop chip. The whiting which was fish of the day was fantastic , ive never had it before so it was great to try, i will definitely ask for it next time I take my family down.More

We went to Simply Fish a couple of weeks ago for lunch. The restaurant was quite busy but we were able to get a lovely table in the window. The staff were very friendly and the ambiance was laid back and welcoming. We shared some...squid and mussels, then monkfish curry, all of which was absolutely stunning!!! Thank you to you all, we will definitely be back soon. Happy New Year 😁😁More

Looks really nice from outside asked if dog friendly. Waitress wasn’t very friendly but never mind . We ordered fish and chips, surf and turf monkfish. 2 glasses Fanta Food came fish and chips first chips looked over cooked. Surf and turf was awful the...fish was like a burnt fish finger the chips were burnt. Fish and chips was ok but nothing special. My husband said steak was nice but couldn’t eat anything else. When the waitress asked how is the food I told her it’s burnt she said il get you another one we refused couldn’t get out of there quick enough.could not drink the Fanta as the glasses smelt like a dirty tea towel. When the waitress went back she told the other staff what I said they all laughed. The older man in a blue t- shirt with a bald head was constantly on his phone scratching his head and neck . Please don’t go to this restaurant and waste your money.More

Tonight's were really disappointing, the fish was a bit stale and I don't know what you've done to your batter recipe - please change it...back! Very average and you used to be 5 star...More

Fantastic meal! We arrived late for lunch as my elderly mother in a chair eats lunch late. But they were so accommodating, by not rushing us even though we were still there after they were due to close. My daughter had the scallop starter and...the small fish and chips, and my mum and I had the delicious monk fish curry! It was divine, some might say a bit pricey but it was full of monk fish and king prawns, and well worth the money. We’re used to London prices so this was really reasonable and soooo fresh! Thank you Simply fish, we’ll be back!More

We didn’t book but were very lucky to get a table outside, I’m sure I heard them say they were busy and short staffed, so maybe to avoid disappointment I would book, I’m sure you can book through the website. Enjoy
