SquareMeal Review of
Rockfish Grill & Seafood Market
Mitch Tonks made his name with the Fishworks chain a few years ago, and he is now back in the game, pursuing his piscine passions with a clutch of eateries in the West Country. Following the
success of Rockfish Seafood and Chips in Dartmouth, he launched this Bristol sibling in 2009. Delicate touches and flashes of inspiration are applied to a menu that runs from devilled monkfish
livers or scallops roasted in the shell with white port and garlic to Devon skate with sauce ravigote or gurnard cooked over fennel with leeks and butter. Seasonal partridge and haunch of
venison add a meaty interest, while rice pudding with damson jelly is a typically calendar-friendly dessert. The food is backed by a commendable wine list and service comes from sharp staff who
know their stuff.
