Using fish caught off British waters, Fish at 85 in Cardiff serves fresh produce, caught daily, and prepared to each diner’s preference. On the site of a working fishmongers, the restaurant expert knowledge goes into every meal.

Adapting to the availability of produce, the Fish at 85 menu showcases fresh, carefully sourced ingredients. Matching fresh fish with exciting flavours, expect the likes of scallops with asparagus and dry sherry, monkfish with green chili and spinach, or build your own dish by choosing the fish, cooking method, accompaniments and sauce. The classics aren’t neglected however, with roast cod and potatoes served with the added panache you’d expect from an expert fishmongers.

Rich desserts complete the menu, with a lemon posset and a hot plum pudding with custard amongst the indulgent options. Simple but charming, wooden-panelled walls and black tiled flooring lend the restaurant a rustic yet contemporary feel.

In the Pontcanna area of the city, Fish at 85 is a 7-minute drive from Cardiff Central Train Station.

    on a first date with a lovely young lady, we had 2 fish dinners and they were absolutely amazing. It was a very nice experience and we will definitely be going again.

    We dined here Saturday night for wife's birthday and the overall experience was really good. The waiter that served us was really attentive and nothing was too much trouble for him as he looked after the diners on his own. A couple of things that could be improved on was the half lobster and the tuna was slightly overcooked but did not spoil our meal and when we return we would just reaffirm our prefernce that tuna should be pink in the middle and the main lobster flesh was a little chewy.

    It was a very disappointing dinner, perhaps it is not a good choice to visit the restaurant for the Tapas Tuesday. Tapas were very blandly put together, mussels hadnt been cleaned properly, calamari were terrible and chewy, tempura which essentially was not a tempura . Fish didnt taste fresh in general, the only positive part of the dinner was a good bottle of Pinot Grigio, but overall a very bad dinner, service was passable. Wouldn't recommend having tapas here!!!
