Described as ‘excellent’ by Harden’s, and set in one of London's historic 'wet fish' shops in West Hampstead, Wet Fish Café rediscovered its roots and showcases the Art Deco tiles which lined the walls during its long history. This quirky backdrop lends authenticity to a friendly café by day and lively brasserie by night, the diverse Wet Fish Café menu headed by fresh, ethically caught fish and seafood.

With daily specials straight from the market, Wet Fish Café serve the catch with pride. Start with mackerel paté or crispy squid with sweet chilli mayo, before moving on to organic salmon with leeks and spinach purée or scallops fettucine.

Meaty venison and fillet steak prove it’s not all fish, with vegetarian pasta specials on the menu too. The brunch selection is great for a lazy weekend lunch, where eggs Benedict and French toasted brioche pair up with indulgent hot chocolate, coffees and fruit-packed smoothies.

Regular live soul and jazz lend smooth and funky vibes to Wet Fish brasserie nights, along with a serious cocktail and wine list. Easy to find on West End Lane, Wet Fish Café is an 8-minute walk from West Hampstead Train Station.

    Absolutely loved it !
    The waiting staff were adorable - so polite and friendly .
    Started with the seafood sharing platter which was absolutely delicious . The only small criticism was the butter arrived in a bit of foil which rather spoilt the effect of such a great starter.
    I had the special ( stonefish ) which was beatiufully cooked whilst my partner who is very discerning ordered and loved the cod.
    Great ambience - would be nice to return on a live music night .
