The setting of this restaurant is lovely, right by the waters edge. We went on an evening and had a really lovely meal. The cod was amazing, really white and generous portions. Will definitely be going back there. Staff very helpful, nothing too much trouble.

Best fish and chips on the Barbican I've tried them all and this is the best, eating them round by the harbour makes them taste even better.

Apparently you can have the hake (and any other fish) without skin if you ask the waiting staff... The chefs are more than happy to accommodate.
