A really good restaurant in what I understand was previously a fishmongers. Went there recently with my wife and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was terrific and the service from our young Australian waitress was spot on. No complaints at all, perfect!
people seem to like it here, but i don’t really understand why! the food is okay, a little bland to my tasting (i do not eat meat so only talking about the veg. options). Perhaps i will try dinner again soon there.
The Wet Fish Cafe has a friendly relaxed atmosphere. I like it for three different experiences: comforting brunch with the family, a contemplative hour on my own with a hot chocolate, or stylish dining out at night. One of the highlights of West Hampstead.
I might be a bit biased here as a good friend is the head chef at this restaurant but i have to say i had one of the best steaks in London at the Wet Fish Cafe…
The restaurant is a great place to eat as the kitchen “floats” above the bar with a small window visible to see Will the chef at work. I followed the meal with a few coffees and even those were fntastic as shapes were produced in the frothy top. I will def be returning again.
A real winner of a cafe in a cracking location. My friend introduced me to it on a rare sunny day and I was happy to sit outside, tucking into smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on taost which, as always, was a winner. We followed this up with a tasty plate of all kinds of titbits including dates, cheese, chorizo and prawns, all washed down with some minted lemonade. All in all I would highly recommend this place to anyone passing by as I think it offers great food, friendly staff and a nice, relaxed atmosphere.
A good place to enjoy in the afternoon or during the week as it is usually quieter than at the week end or so I hear.
We go there to enjoy a cafe-croissant and maybe a ciggie on the small terrace outside, looking at the passers-by and possibly change the world for the better with a couple of friends.
It has got a good atmosphere, a bit like the french cafes and they have good food for fairly reasonnable prices. The waiters are laid-back and helpful so it is a nice spot to go to if you are in the area.
The Wet Fish Café is the result of an excellent renovation job a few years back: strip back the old plastering, and reveal the wonderful glazed tiles of what used to be a fresh fish shop.
It’s now one of my favourite places for a weekend brunch. It’s not huge, so you may need to wait for one of the dozen or so tables. It’s a great spot full of locals, though. The food has a touch of the fancy about it, and a whole lot of taste. The French toast is great, as is the scrambled eggs with chorizo and refried beans, and the bacon on polenta.
There’s a full menu for other mealtimes too, so if you’re after more than breakfast with coffee you’ve got plenty of choice.
There are usually a few newspapers around, too.
