We have visited Ocean Fish Platter three times now, and each time has been incredible. The food, the service, everything about the visit goes beyond expectation! We love that they have such a huge, varied menu that isn't just fish (but an array of fish...and seafood options that we haven't even scratched the surface of yet!) and that it's very family friendly (the kids portion sizes are huge, such good value for money too). Highly recommend the combo dishes (grilled fish and scallops were delicious) and the seafood platter for two. You won't be leaving hungry! It's a testament to the restaurant that they are number 1 on TripAdvisor and have been for a while now, and I don't see that changing any time soon. Restaurants in Ipswich need to up their game to even match OFP!More

The trip to this amazing place is worth it, you won’t be disappointed! This time, we had scallops and king prawns as starters then the ocean platter to share, the selection is delicious full of flavours! We took our honey & syrup baklava back home,...also wonderful! The staff is so polite and professional, the atmosphere is great! It’s not our first visit and it won’t be our last!!More

Dropped in for a pre theatre meal & ordered the seafood platter for 2 and 2 cappuccinos. Really delicious platter, lots of mussels, 2 scallops plus king prawns and 2 pieces of fish (not sure what kind). 2 side dishes of rice and salad, plus...the pomegranate sauce. All really good. Service excellent and the coffee was great too! Service charge at 10% was added to the bill, happy to pay that though. Bonus points for being within walking distance of the theatre too. Highly recommended!More

Stumbled across this absolute jewel of a restaurant on Facebook. Tucked away in the town centre. The atmosphere was relaxed, very clean and well presented. Staff were very attentive and the food was excellent. Totally blown away. Would definitely recommend it to fish fanatics.

It's one of the few fish restaurants that serve lobster (live from the tank) and Halibut Steaks. We had the Halibut with just a salad and a regular Cod & chips. Both delicious. It was a Saturday lunchtime and it was very busy BUT we...didn't have to wait too long for our freshly cooked fish. As it's Turkish owned you can enjoy your fish with a large glass of Efes Beer. Not our first visit and definitely not our last. THANK YOU.More

Wonderful place, with a great choice of seafood dishes. Staff are very attentive and helpful when choosing a dish. Food is cooked fresh and is served hot unlike some places.
