I do not usually bother writing reviews, but had such an amazing experience at this restaurant I felt that I just had to take the time to leave this feedback. My fiancé and I had the most perfect evening at The Flying Fish. The setting is stunning, the food amazing and service impeccable. The staff here could not do enough... More

Meals , view, music ,setting was certainly enjoyable however the standard of the wait staff - appalling . Management must provided additional training to staff in this area. One example- pouring of water should be restricted to the glass not the table, cutlery; certainly not the personal belongings of diners . Our experience was not on one occasion but every... More

My girlfriend and I celebrated our 20 year friendship yesterday at this beautiful restaurant. We were sat at a table but there was a larger table next to us and they moved us to a quieter part of the restaurant without us asking, which we appreciated. The service was unbelievably fantastic and we had the Degustation menu. We loved all... More

Great location. Good food. Unfortunately we had a party of ten and were forced to have the set menu, which left a bit to be desired.

Hi David M, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us at Flying Fish. Its good to read you thought positively about the food. Unfortunately as you experienced, groups of 10 or more are considered large groups and are placed on a set menu. This is to assist in ensuring your table is served appropriately and... More

If you're looking for fresh local fish with a twist, you can't go wrong here. The open kitchen is a treat to watch, and the view is charming.

Location, views, ambience and food were absolutely "magnificent". Expensive but as a special Occassion (work Christmas party) well worth it. The only negative was a number of waiters spoke little English and several drink orders were completely wrong, with trying to explain their mistakes becoming very frustrating. I would visit again on a special occasion.

I chose Flying Fish to celebrate the successful completion of an 18 month project in which my wife had been involved. I booked Sunday lunch after reading many good and excellent reviews about the place. In short we were not disappointed. The degustation menu and accompanying wines proved to be an excellent choice with so many exciting flavours and textures.... More

I had been to the restaurant a few years ago and was really stunned by the food and service. The food is still sublime - so much taste in every bite. But oh dear - what has happened to the service levels??? No advice on menu or wines offered. Empty glasses throughout the meal. The staff were really friendly, but... More
