Summary

“Hugely popular” and “exuberantly cheerful” West End spot universal praised for its “soul-restoring” seafood; OK, so it's “not THAT cheap”, but “the quality of the ingredients would preclude that” – and “it's so tiny that you feel quite triumphant getting a table!”

“THE place to eat fish in the West End”; this “buzzing” joint dishes up “sensational” produce that’s “simply served to let its true quality shine through”; “good luck getting a seat without booking… and it’s a tight squeeze even if you do!”
