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.

    We always feel very comfortable at Fish at 85. It's not pretentious. The food is fresh, tasty and well presented. Have recommended to others.

    What more could you want, excellent fresh produce, excellently cooked with attentive helpful staff and reasonable cost. There is talk of extension of the current 30 covers, I hope the extra load on the kitchen does not distract from the womderful bistro feel.
    If there was a down side it was the single loo.

    Good food and service, just lacked a little ambience as quite quiet for a Saturday night

  • ((((( 12 November 2017 by Kate from Cardiff

    Have dined in the small restaurant previously before these new owners took over, the food was average, service slow and it was cold. A friend recommended to try again, OMG what a total change, best fish I've ever eaten, service fantastic and it was much warmer in the restaurant. We have dined at many top restaurants in the world and this was up there in our top 10. Well done!

    Disappointed that the 'catch of the day' menu is no longer available (which is displayed on the restaurant website) the menu was quite limited with just 4 white fish mains available. Had been looking forward to coming here for a while and was fairly disappointed - food was ok but not delicious (however the wine was delicious)

    Food was delicious, not only the fish but the crushed potatoes, creamy leeks and a smoked fish ball thing. All yummy. My friend and I shared the prawm tempura starter and asked if we could have 6 prawns so we could easily share and this was done, thank you so much. Service was very good
