Excellent meal, expertly cooked and very generous portions. Our waiter was also excellent, very helpful and attentive without being overbearing. No problem with changes to a dish to accommodate specific dislikes. "Doggie-bags" provided to assist with the generous portions.

    First time in the restaurant, after seeing it in all lists as one of the best restaurants in Cardiff. Excellent food (both taste and presentation) and service. We will definetely come back and recommend to our friends.

    Fish@85 is fast becoming our family favourite. The fish is extraordinarily fresh and cooked to perfection. The platter for 4 is a wonderful way of sampling lots of different fish and sauces and such good value. Lovely atmosphere, relaxed and efficient. Maybe the heating could be turned up a notch or two. Can't recommend highly enough though.

    We visited Fish at 85 last night for the first time and really enjoyed ourselves. The ambience, friendly staff and delicious food contributed to a really good experience. We ordered the brill, baked cod, king prawns as a main and one turkey dinner, as its Christmas! Then shared a chocolate torte and cheese board between 4 of us. Will most definitely be going back until we've exhausted that scrumptious menu. Thanks so much for a lovely evening xxx

    Hi - food was great; modern and clean but a little clinical and not a cosy environment but otherwise excellent

    Lovely restaurant with friendly and efficient staff. The food was great. My Sea Bass risotto was delicious and my wife loved the Monkfish which she had. Nice wine list too. Will definitely visit again
