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.

    Every dish perfect as usual - the best fish in miles if not the whole country. Friendly but not pushy staff and lovely little restaurant

    Was wonderful but they had no idea who I was or that I had a reservation. Fortunately they managed to get us a table but with the proviso that we finish before there real reservation showed. ?????

    We came for a graduation celebration. A party of 6 with one vegetarian. It was a truly memorable meal. The monkfish was compared in quality to the fish equivalent to the best steak my husband had ever eaten. The hake was also exceptional. The chef made me (the vegetarian) a delicious little mushroom pie with lots of fine asparagus. We had the Albarino, three bottles of it! All highly appreciated. The staff were great. Thank you!

    It was our first time eating at Fish at 85, first impressions count and whilst our meal was lovely we were quite disappointed that you had to pre order certain things 48hrs before your booking which were not clear!! Not a lot of choice at the counter which we thought could be ordered on the night. I had moules to start and most restaurant's give you a spoon and bread on the side, little things like this make the meal all the better, the main I had was turbot which I could not fault. Overall lovely little place but lacked attention to detail
