“Dover Sole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

The food, service, and general ambience is excellent and I would fully recommend it. The fish is fresh and if you like fish it is the perfect restaurant for you.

“What a garguntuan meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

Visited this restaurant yesterday at lunchtime having been recommended by a friend.
We were about to order one course when I noticed a small lozenge in the centre of the menu called Meze experience which we decided to try-two courses-like a tasting menu- for £31 for the two of us. How glad we were! We had an enormous feast of some of the best fish we had ever tasted. The service was good and the waitress explained our choice to us in detail.
The first course was some fried calamari and whitebait with a mound of salad as we did not want to offered cheese. The fish was lovely and hot and the whitebait were a very good size and delicious.
As for the second course-WOW! An enormous platter of fish arrived at the table-skate, huss, salmon, shrimps, and a whole plaice, together with side dishes of chips and vegetables. This was followed by a tureen of mussels which we returned as there was no way we could do justice to them. We tried our hardest to eat it all but had to leave some salmon. The skate and huss were the standout fish but we enjoyed it all.
We rounded off the meal with a very good Americano coffee served in a lovely glass.
A great experience which we shall repeat soon-perhaps fasting for a couple of days beforehand. The service was good and attentive throughout.

“Great food - great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

What a lovely surprise! It was a spontaneous night out with a friend and we didn't know what to expect. As we walked through the very spacious restaurant we were taken in by the atmosphere and very encouraged by what we saw on the plates. We weren't disappointed and had a delicious meal - grilled skate with copious caper butter and grilled sardines. All very reasonable. This is what we need - more good quality, good value fish restaurants. When are you opening in Chichester?!

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014 via mobile

Our visit was a spare of the moment thing the restaurant wasn't particularly busy, we were shown to our table by one person our order was taken by another and our food was bought to us by another so we didn't have one person looking after us. The food was disappointing I ordered scampi and chips with veg but when bought out to me the veg was on a side plate and all I had was chip shop chips and scampi no garnish no nothing the same with my husbands fish and chips, what I dislike is when the waiter clears other plates when I'm still eating I always thought it was polite to wait for everyone to finish first before you clear any plates also you couldn't understand him very well because of his accent.

“A really great place in Littlehampton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

I booked a family reunion a couple of months in advance without knowing exactly how many would come or at what time they would turn up, and was told just to confirm the day before, a separate area would be reserved for us. Everyone would be paying separately which can be a problem, but not at The Fish Factory.
The restaurant is bright and spacious, the staff are friendly and very professional, and the owner very kindly agreed to a 2-week exhibition of displays linked to our family.
On the day, there were 22 adults and a child, all arriving a different times starting at midday, and the service couldn't have been better! There is so much choice on the menu and the prices are really good value.
Everyone had a wonderful time and I can't thank Karen and her team enough.
I've been back since and look forward to returning as often as possible!
