SquareMeal Review of Fish Market

Bronze Award

The carefree, nautical side of D&D London’s Old Bengal Warehouse revamp, Fish Market has quickly earned the trust of City folk keen for a quick bite and a glass of wine. The decor is perfectly pitched with its aquamarine ceiling, bright tones, white brickwork and marble bar, and there’s fine-weather alfresco seating, too. Food-wise, a selection of crustacea (sold by the half-pint) is a good place to start, followed perhaps by smoked-haddock Scotch eggs or Ortiz anchovies with shallots. More substantial fare might include baked fillet of bream with artichoke, pancetta and cockle butter or “the best” fish and chips, while the 80-strong wine list majors on fresh, zingy whites, with the odd show-stopping white Burgundy thrown in. “Very attentive” staff, “spot-on” cocktails, and a two-course set lunch for £16.50 make Fish Market quite a catch.

About Fish Market

Lovers of fresh fish and seafood will rejoice at this D&D-owned restaurant near Liverpool Street. The relaxed venue offers an informal dining experience, along with an outdoor terrace for guests to enjoy a taste of the British seaside. Fish Market is part of the D&D group (also German Gymnasium, Quaglino’s and Bluebird), however, so don’t go thinking it’s any less stylish than its other ventures. There’s a prominent nautical theme throughout via a blue and white colour scheme, as well as grand white pillars, industrial lighting and a blue and white marble-topped bar. The bright and breezy interiors have been designed by Conran, with the restaurant set inside a historic 18th century warehouse.  

Head Chef Joginder Dham, meanwhile, has reeled in a fantastic fish menu that features fish caught from British coastlines and rivers using sustainable methods. If you can’t decide what to eat, then opt for the fish market platter which features shell-on prawns, yellowfin tuna tartare, Shetland mussels, Palourde clams, and Isle of Mull scallops. Starters consist of smoked salmon with fennel and crème fraiche and octopus carpaccio with olive tapenade and coriander. While mains include ‘Fish Market Classics’ such as fish pie, beer-battered haddock, tiger prawn linguine and soft-shell crab burger. There are a few non-fish options as well if that’s more your thing. Desserts include the likes of passionfruit and raspberry pavlova and lemon posset with ginger shortbread.

There’s also a set brunch menu available every Saturday from which guests can dine on two or three courses of fishy favourites. Plus, add unlimited bubbles for a flat fee per person. 

The generous wine list favours white wines over reds and roses, which makes sense considering it’s a fish restaurant. There are also a handful of sweet wines to pair with dessert (or instead of) if liked.

Nice outdoor terrace seating on a quiet pedestrianised street. Fish and seafood was fresh and the menu offered a wide variety of seafood. Great side dishes as well. We had a very satisfying lunch.

Went for a catch-up with a girlfriend over food and wine. As we both like fish we picked this restaurant but alas there was not that much fish to choose from which was odd since the venue is being marketed as a fish restaurant. Having said that the food was good, I enjoyed my meal and so did my friend who as there was not that much ion the fish menu to choose from went for the duck leg instead. Staff are friendly and polite, service is good, decor nothing special. Chairs are like garden chairs inside and out and I would have preferred to sit more comfortably. Later in the evening it got really noisy inside so my friend and I spent the remainder of the evening in the outside seating area. Would I go again? Yes, but not if I had to pay full price.

This was our first visit to Fish Market and it certainly won't be our last. The staff were so welcoming and the atmosphere great. The food was divine! Would like to try the outside eating area when the weather gets a bit better.

I was well looked after on a recent visit to the Fish Market and was impressed by the following; 1) Quality of ingredients that spoke for themselves without being messed about with too much. 2) Staff were personable, willing to chat when appropriate, but discreet and efficient otherwise. 3) A good choice including special 2 course evening menu, a full menu and daily specials to offer something for most customers and appetites. I will return

Pretty good
The food here is generally quite good, however on the occasion that I went I had to send my mussels back because they were really gritty. That is is not good for a fish restaurant! I would return however as that was possibly a one-off. The service is excellent.

Calm, tasty and attentive
Impromptu Friday night dinner here and was pleasantly surprised with both service and atmosphere. Wasn't too busy or too loud, food was excellent, cocktails spot on and staff very attentive. And most importantly, i didn't feel ripped off. BONUS.

freshest fish , luscious lobster and superb staff......who could ask for more!!!
Great atmosphere and such a great choice of menu, we loved the mixed fish starter, my friends fish and chips the best he had tasted and the Lobster was almost as good as the one I had in Boston MA. Love this place for the value, lovely warm service and great food! Try it!
