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.

    Nicely decorated. Fab and friendly staff. Food was really nice but not exceptional.

  • ((((* 13 February 2017 by Nigel Williams from Sussex

    We had lunch on a Six Nations Saturday so inevitably the restaurant was busy with some big groups. Food was excellent and very fairly priced with everything cooked very well. With the kitchen up a narrow stairs and the diners downstairs, the service team struggled with so much carrying up and down and so there were a few lengthy waits towards the end of the meal. Previous contributors have also remarked upon the restaurant being cold and whilst efforts are being made with various fan heaters, it could still do with being a bit warmer to make it more relaxing.
