Fish! restaurant in the heart of Borough market, does what it says – providing the very best fish available in London to hungry customers.
Established in 1999, restaurateur Tony Allan had a vision to transform the old 18th century Pea Shelling Warehouse into a fish restaurant. The rich browns deep oranges achieve a stylist, sleek and modern touch. The airy interior encompasses the open kitchen where diners can watch the chefs at work.
The restaurant opens out onto a large terrace, which is open all year and sits in the heart of Borough weekend market, with views of Southwark Cathedral.
We consistently supply fresh, reliably sourced and where possible sustainable fish, simply prepared and fairly priced to our customers. All of the fish we serve is prepared daily at our own long established fishmonger, Jarvis.

Fish! Ratings and Reviews
I met 2 friends for dinner and we all immediately commented on the noise levels. The acoustics amplify the conversational noise and this is compounded by the location directly below a busy railway arch next to London Bridge. The staff were attentive and friendly, but denied that there was a tuna salad on the menu, when Tuna Salad Nicoise was clearly marked. The mackerel I ordered was OK but not as spankingly fresh as it should be in a fish restaurant. However, the Salsa Verde that came with it was neither salsa nor verde. It consisted of a stir fry of roughly chopped cabbage and sliced carrots. There was a small pot of very oily pesto beside it. The pesto was also served with the Salad Nicoise as the dressing. They were both a nasty addition to the mackerel which desperately needed a good punch of acid to balance the meal. Not sure what the chef was thinking. Despite the helpful member of staff that followed me out of the restaurant with my forgotten umbrella, and the good and affordable Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, we'll meet elsewhere next time.
I love FISH!
I love it because the one I know (by Southwark Cathedral) is simple in decor and airy. The ambience is provided by Borough Market. The fish dishes, of course, are excellent as is the service which is friendly and efficient.It's also very centrally situated & close to both London Bridge Station and many bus lines. The restaurant is also good value and there's a takeaway if you're in a hurry.

Great setting, great scallops and lobster dishes, really nice prosecco too
FISH OVER IT'S SELL BY DATE..?
i have to say the service was great - very attentive. but the food is tired, the cooking unaccomplished. my lobster that was harder to chew than a trainer. i shan't be returning.
A great venue for friends
5 of us met here for lunch and the food was good. It might have attracted a higher rating but a friend wanted spinach and there was none. Would really recommend the skate and especially appreciated the option to have it grilled or steamed, plus the choice of sauces which are provided in a separate pot. I chose steamed skate with hollandaise and it was absolutely succulent. Side dishes are essential with many of the main courses, so it can be an expensive meal overall - but the hand-cut chips were expertly cooked, as were the new potatoes and other vegetable sides. With wine and shared bread/olives as a starter, our meal came to £36 a head without desserts. The restaurant wasn't too busy but I can imagine it could be very noisy when full. The outside terrace looked fantastic though and would definitely use it in the summer months. The service was excellent throughout; a friendly welcome and a helpful, but non-intrusive waiter.
Great welcome and a very good spacious table. I had originally booked on-line for 5 of us and then felt mortally embarrassed as 2 of the 5 of us cried off with illness last minute. The 3 of us remaining ones and had so much to catch up on and the staff were brilliant at just keeping the food and wine flowing and thus allowing us to get on with the business in hand - a really good gossip.
The setting was beautiful, but the experience was generally very disappointing. The food itself was poor... The bruschetta was a pile of tomato on a slice of soggy bread, the lobster was dry and chewy, and busting with roe. In addition, the light levels were so low that we had to use our phones as torches in order to actually see what we were eating. It's possible there was a short circuit somewhere in the restaurant, but no one told us as such so I can only presume it was supposed to be ambience. They also had no tea or coffee, which by that point, could have been predicted.
Fish did not dissapoint! Our family of 4 dined in lovely surroundings in the market with attentive service. The menu had just the right choice without being too much, great oysters for starters too! Would highly recommend this to all seafood lovers!
Great night out with very attentive staff. We all were very impressed with the quality of the seafood and we all had work food and the staff keep the clean napkins and finger bowls coming. Enjoyed it so much that we've already booked our Christmas night out there.
Food well cooked, service attentive. Expensive fish and chips, but probably in line with the alternatives in the area. Ideal place for simple food when the weather is warm, as you can sit outside.

Good fresh fish. Staff pleasant. Small table
Enjoyed lunch with my elderly parents yesterday. 3 of us had the set menu and 1 ate off the main menu. Food was very tasty and we all enjoyed it. The fish soup was a real hit. However, service was very average - waiter brought me the wrong starter and he failed to pour wine which he did do for the table next to us. Took ages to get another waiter to take our dessert order and yet more wait for the bill. Absolutely no justification for mandatory 12.5% service charge. If I hadn't had to leave for a meeting , I would have had the charge taken off but I didn't have time.
With so much choice next to borough market it's difficult to pick but fish! was a good choice. Great food but a noisy environment so definitely one to visit with a group and not as a business lunch/dinner. This maybe better in the summer with their outdoor dining. Friendly, helpful staff and a quick service.

Service was good. Location is nice. We had the skate, monkfish and a fish and chips. All was nice.
Excellent for fish lovers,try the starters too!
This restaurant in the heart of Borough Market really stands up to its name. It has a large selection of fish meals at reasonable prices. Had some starters too which are tasty and a reasonable size. I had a special as a main but beware some don't come with any sides so you would need to order an extra side. Great outdoor sitting (covered and has heaters) but inside is also nice with views to the kitchen. There is a special takeaway area if you aren't coming for a sit down meal. Would recommend for special occasions.
Simply put... THE best Fish & Chips
Posh Fish & Chips. Fish & chips at it's absolute best. Faultless service, faultless food. Great location. But it's not cheap.
All aspects of the food were excellent. Fish soup, mussels, salmon. All the extras for vegetables and bread added up making it a more expensive meal than expected. Good service

portion of sea bass was too small but they brought another which was very good of them
The Fish and chips had been recommended and to be honest was totally disappointing the fish was overcooked and the chips tasted to have been re heated. The fish salad looked appetising but was overpriced for what is was as was the scallops.
Service was a tad slow but I'm guessing we booked in at a strange time for a Sunday (530pm). Fish was beautiful, probably spoilt the traditional version for my Anerican friends - food was awesome.
Food was just ok, could have been warmer .
Overpriced scallops on a mushroom, a few tomatoes and a handful of bagged lettuce. Tuna was ok, menu said it came with a selection of veg but no potatoes
Right in the middle of Borough Market but a good place to people watch in a quieter place. Food was delicious but tiny portions. Staff friendly and efficient. Good for brunch.
Excellent fish restaurant.
8 of us has excellent meals with very good service. They do have a few non fish menu items for those that are not fish enthusiasts. One of the best fish restaurants I have been to. Compares well to fish restaurants I have visited in Oban, Chile, Norway.
Bland food & expensive
Was expecting a decent fish & chips from this place but it didn't even manage that. It's got a superb location right in the heart of London Bridge so easy to meet up/get to, just shame the food quality seemed so poor. Everything on the plate was bland so no amount of salt, vinegar or ketchup could make up for it. We also had dessert but as one of my friends commented it seemed like the sort of place where things were just being heated up from frozen. Fish & Chips with a standard drink and a shared dessert came to just over £30 each. I've had far better food & level of service for a lot less. Sorry but I won't be returning or recommending Fish!
Great food poor service
The food was good quality & taste, however the management greatly under estimated the number of people that were dining in their restaurant on a bank holiday Monday, as a result there was not enough staff on and service was very slow, the waiter who served us was great but totally rushed off his feet, he was let down by poor management
Has nice striaght forward fish options.
Service for us was good, but we were in early and they place was on quarter full. Have heard it can be bad when it's really busy. Also not sure the tips go to the waiting staff. Apparently they get questioned if you refuse to pay the 'discretionary service charge'.
Don't waste your money
I would certainly not go back to Fish. The reception wasn't staffed and a queue of diners formed. Service at table was attentive and one member of staff was particularly helpful and friendly. The food was extremely poor. Starters were almost cold on arrival and poorly presented and the devilled whitebait tasteless and soggy. The main courses not much better. Poorly presented and warm. My grilled skate had clearly sat under a warm lamp for some time and was not fresh and full of taste. The vegetables were a mess of what looked like leftovers, the only really good thing was the side of new potatoes. The restaurant talks up how fresh and well-sourced the fish is, but you certainly wouldn't know it. The food is expensive for what it is, and I've eaten better in local south American cafes in south London. I suspect that the high level of tourism to Borough market means they can get away with serving substandard food.
At first you think you enter a factory, but as soon you see and taste the food you know that this kitchen is wonderful and fresh. We had a very good lunch: prawn salad, calamars, hake and chips. The white wine of the house is good, and the service is excellent. Borough Market is a special place and this restaurant makes it even better!
This is our second visit and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff helpful. The food is cooked to a very high standard. I would recommend the Calamari and the Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce. Booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. We will be coming again. Thank you!
I went there on A Sunday afternoon for lunch and had the fishcakes as a starter and Swordfish as a main and the food was exceptional. One of the best meals I've had, plus it was great to sit outside as well. The restaurant has real character and a thoroughly enjoyable meal. I'd definitely recommend it.
A family early dinner
Taking a family of 4 adults and 2 children came to nearly £300 - a bit steep for what we had.
My companion and I had eaten here before. The set lunch offered varied items and we enjoyed it. I have marked down ambiance, as it is very noisy. The chairs have no rubber feet and are being dragged on tiled floor by diners. Also, behind the bar, bottles thrown around etc.
SATURDAY EVNING MEAL
We went on a fairly warm Saturday evening in August. We sat outside in the pleasant outside terrace, this may be a little noisy during the day Thursday to Saturday when the market is on, but was fine in the evening. Food was good, I had a wing of skate, grilled, my wife Dover Sole, also grilled. Both were excellent with simple butter and caper and Hollandaise sauces respectively. I liked that you could choose your sauce from about 5 options. Sides of New Potatoes, Mushy Peas, and French beans were all good. My starter of Devil Whitebait was for me a bit of a low point. The devil had been absent in their preparation and, for my taste, not very crispy. It was not a bad dish, just I felt, not Devilled Whitebait. My wife enjoyed her Calamari and Rocket salad. Service was quick, friendly, with just the right level of attention. All in all a pleasant meal.
Set in bustling Borough Market, great atmosphere
Enjoyed our lunch in this busy restaurant in the middle of bustling and noisy Borough Market. Had the set lunch. £19.95 + £5 extra for Lobster. both had Fish soup 9/10 - Grilled Lobster with lovely chips 7/10 and a large glass wine and service £69. a little overpriced but not by much. Service swift and friendly
3 of us went to Fish for a friends birthday. We shared 3 starters and the waiter recommended we wait until we had eaten them before ordering main courses......he was right. The starter portions were very generous and we ended up only ordering one main course and some sides between the 3 of us! One portion of ice-cream to share followed and coffees. We had a decent bottle of Prosecco and the bill was a reasonable £130. The only negative was it was soooo hot inside. Although they had no problem with us taking coffee and dessert outside to cool down.
Fish supper supa
Went here for my birthday with family and was ideal on a warm summers Friday evening in Borough market. Had a delicious baked lemon sole with a chilled bottle of Scencere. YUM.
Lovely lunch !
Despite Opentable saying we hadn't been there we had an excellent lunch on 31/7. The organic smoked salmon was top notch and the sea trout with samphire very tasty. Will be back.
.Lunch with a friend
Overall the ambiance and service were good however the food lacked in taste and seasonning. One of the main courses, ie crab was expensive for what you get. Disappointing.
