Summary

“No-fuss”, “fresh seafood done really well” combines with a “fun” and “buzzy” (“riotous” even!) ambience, at this Soho landmark – formerly a butcher (est 1911) that morphed into a restaurant 25 years ago. “It’s still excellent after all these years, like meeting an old friend – we love it”. “Go for the specials, they’re always worth trying”.

Summary

“The epitome of a Soho lifestyle” is to be found at this “fun” classic, near The Box Soho, where “great people watching” helps whet the appetite for some “brilliant fruits de mer and fabulous fish”, enjoyed while nattering and perched on high bar stools. “Service is warm, friendly and, occasionally, quirky in a good way”. “Be prepared to queue but it’s worth the wait”.
