Down from Scotland to see a friend in Hove, and this restaurant made it very worthwhile trip. A magical meal in every way, each course hit the spot, all very fresh and lets keep it simple so the tastes really do come through. Reasonably priced and matched wines with each course. First class and very friendly service, well deserved Three... More

Cracking place, lovely attentive waiter. Fish celebrated in all its glory. The sole with seaweed butter was tremendous, the inky squid yumminess of a risotto was on the money. The sea bass with smoked mackerel a delight, though considered "over-dill-ed" by one in our party. This place is a fixed price menu based on what they have managed to get... More

We have been to the Little Fish Market a few times but this time we wanted a unique dinner with five Godsons and their wives. Robert and Duncan did not disappointed. The five course meal was familiar but every time the dishes create a 'wow' response. From the starter with little ribbons of taramasalata to the gorgeous slip sole with... More

This was my first visit, but I really enjoyed it, and can't wait to go back. The restaurant had a lovely feel - small and intimate. There was only one waiter, but that was all it need needed. He was fantastic. Very attentative without being over barring. Loved the fact FREE water was offered straight away. Having only a five... More

Although I'd been recommended to this Hove back street fish restaurant a few times by friends I'd unfortunately never been able to visit. Finally my family invited me here for a birthday celebration and wow I wish I'd made more effort previously. I believe the restaurant is only open evenings, but it's certainly worth seeking out and booking and deserves... More

A tasting menu of fish exquisitely prepared by Duncan Ray would that would compliment anything Nathan Outlaw produced. There was a flavoursome simplicity to each dish that made it impossible to play the game of ' which dish would I choose again'. We managed to reduce it to three ( not counting the dessert, which I would eat every day)... More
