Summary

“There’s just something about sitting on one of the stools” (“they even replaced the old uncomfortable ones!”), and “watching the world go by”, at this “fun-and-frisky” Soho haven (a characterful, tiled ex butcher’s shop). “Charming” and “flamboyant” staff provide “so-fresh” seafood and “excellent rôtisserie chicken”.

Summary

“It just rocks!”; this “cool little Soho haven” is “a bit cramped and insanely busy” thanks to its “fabulous” seafood (“proper fruits de mer”) and “top rotisserie chicken”; in September 2015, its once notoriously uncomfortable tall stools received a plush makeover, making them an even better perch for people-watching!

Summary

“A pretty much unique experience!”; offering “delicious” seafood, right in the sleazy heart of Soho, this “cosily perfect” (if “loud”) champagne and seafood bar is “a real gem”; “get a window table to watch the goings-on outside”.

"We came for the fish and very good it was too. Crab cakes were very crabby and not too dry which is a usual trait. Little disappointed with the Lemon Sole which had its delicate flavour masked by a volley of Panko Crumbs. Wine list was excellent with the mid-priced wines outscoring the more expensive end of the list. Service was lively and not too in-your-face. Only one niggle was the pole running up the middle of our table. Didn't know whether to pole dance around it or dress up in a firepersons uniform."

"Brilliant venue for a bit of lunch and the seafood is excellent. It's not cheap but it's worth the price for the quality of food. Service is good but could be a little less 'pushy' in order to score even more highly. Whilst it's great to work so close to here I'd love a lunch in there where I didn't have to go back to the office in order to make full use of the white wine to accompany the high quality food in a lovely setting."
