“Fish at its best: fresh, dressed and novel – seared, crispy and spiced; or as a mountain of fruits de mer au naturel” is the reason this “fabulous”, “almost caff-like” local on Highbury Corner (which doubles as a fishmonger) is “always very busy”. It’s “a rarity in London”, and “every bit as good as its Cornish cousin” in Padstow. One caveat: it’s “far too tiny and cramped and always needs to be booked days ahead – wish they would expand”.

“Top-quality fish, simply cooked” and “served tapas-style” in an “informal setting” make this fishmonger/seafood bar on Highbury Corner (with a sibling in Padstow) a “great neighbourhood place”. “Can be busy and cramped, but the food is very good.”

This “small but perfectly formed” Highbury Corner outfit “can’t make up its mind whether it’s a fish shop, wine bar or restaurant”. But “don’t be put off” – the tapas-style fish and platters of Cornish crab, lobster and fruits de mer on ice are “delicious, fresh and moreish”.

“Absolutely fresh fish, beautifully cooked” is the major selling-point of this “very hipster” fishmonger and restaurant near Highbury & Islington tube. It can get “very cramped – but so what?”
