Chef David Wykes has earned a glowing reputation for his “calm” dining room with open kitchen behind a fishmonger – “one of those restaurants you’re continually looking for an excuse or reason to return to” with “outstanding” preparation of fish.
“David Wykes continues to impress, continuously developing and refining the menu with many a surprise on the plate” (“yet again a stunning, slightly crazy but absolutely delicious meal”) at his small venture, behind a fishmongers. “Chefs are so friendly with their open plan kitchen and waiters are passionate and knowledgeable about the food”.
“Wow!” David Wykes “shows real imagination and skill in both cooking and presentation” at this “small” venture, behind a fishmonger. “Garnishes and flourishes galore, plus the freshest fish” deliver “a wonderful meal, full of surprises”.
Overlooked by many guides, Chef/patron David Wykes deserves much greater recognition for his “stand out” (if “loud and crowded”) five-year-old venture, behind a fishmonger. The menu can sound “funny and Wonka-inspired”, but “wow!” – “a huge range of fish” is “perfectly prepared” and “exquisitely presented” as part of “imaginative” dishes showing “real innovation and skill”.
