The Wet Fish Cafe Description

Book a table at The Wet Fish Cafe

The Wet Fish Cafe offers a culinary experience on the site of one of London's original 'wet fish' shops. The kitchen staff's approach to food is eclectic, using the best seasonal ingredients, a dose of creative licence and, most of all, superb cooking skills. Honestly prepared food is the theme of the kitchen and the focus is on simple and fresh high quality food, cooked well. The produce is chosen carefully and each dish is made from scratch on-site. In addition to a selection of classic favourites, the wine list presents hidden gems from unusual grape varieties for you to try. Coffee is also

considered a culinary art in its own right and the renowned cappuccinos are worth the visit alone. The Wet Fish Cafe is an elegant dining venue where the team explores and expresses a love of food, wine, ambience and cafe culture. more

“Like Andrew Said the food is great but everything else about the venue sucks. Cold draft! Eccentric owner! Maybe he should just hire a manager and become a customer...”

“What an amazing find! Undoubtedly the best cup of coffee I have had, presented with perfection with 'coffee art' like I haven't seen since I was in Japan and the freshest most delicious danish pastries. Lovely setting and ambience with fun and attentive staff. Especially wonderful with the sun shining and customers spilling out on to the pavement. Lunch was great too with a great selection of wines and recommendations to accompany it - if you're lucky enough not to be the one driving! I'll be back - lots. Thank you.”
