“Fresh fish perfectly cooked on the bone” is a highlight of a visit to this well-established if “basic” venue, which continues to garner positive reports in the main. The owners launched a sibling, Urban Food House, offering pizza and other casual fare, in Bowness, in August 2018.

“Lovely fresh fish cooked to perfection” remains the considerable draw to this diminutive eight-year-old, occasionally “a little lacking in atmosphere” and “expensive, but worth it!”

“Fresh fish cooked to perfection” is the simple but winning formula of this cosy venture; while no one debates the food quality, the setting can seem either unassuming or “average”, and the Antipodean owner either charming or “overwhelming”, depending on your perspective.

For “superb fish, simply cooked and served fresh”, head to this “unpretentious” spot, where the “small menu” is “cooked with precision”, and where “the bonhomie of the (Antipodean) owner adds to the experience”.
