The Mayfair branch of this small chain of seafood restaurants is handsome and cleverly designed, thanks to dark wooden furniture, greeny-grey colours, and the nifty use of wine racks to divide up the space. Most of the fish is from Devon and the south coast. Options range from oysters, whole Devon crab and Nova Scotia lobster thermidor to seared yellowfin tuna nicoise, Arbroath smokies with a freshly poached duck egg and chervil butter, lobster linguine and oven-roasted sea bass with fresh lemon thyme, olive oil and Cornish sea salt. The wine list focuses on whites, though some reds do feature, too. Beers include Viceroy India Pale Ale from Westerham Brewery, Sagres and Peroni. FishWorks' sister branch is in Marylebone.
Venue says: “Pick a fish from the counter, choose the way you like it cooked, have it filleted at your table. For 2-4 to share. Trust seafood.”
