Local favourite Geales is an old-fashioned fish and chip restaurant which has been frying up its simple, delicious seafood dishes for over 68 years. The subdued décor adds a hint of Notting Hill glamour to this otherwise straightforward restaurant, but it's the fish that everyone has come for. Specials come fresh from Devon and Cornwall, and there are plenty of favourites such as dressed crab, salmon and leek fishcakes and oysters straight from the bar.

This restaurant is a beautiful blend of rustic and homely. There are at least 50 shades of grey that give the place a modern, shabby chic feel.
The food however was a slight letdown. The starter was delicious and came on time. However, the plate was littered with breadcrumbs and Himalayan rock salt, a pointless and annoying decoration. The main was decent, but the spinach was more waterlogged...more
Oh my God, what a massive disappointment! A friend in Manhattan, a former Londoner herself, recommended this place for our London holiday. She will be appalled when I tell her our experience. The host (?) seated us in an isolated spot-mind you, the restaurant was dead on a Wednesday evening, which is not a good sign in itself-then left us without menus. We easily sat for 10 minutes waiting for...more
Not really worth the prices, IMHO. Being a visitor, I was expecting great fish and chips (£16) but it was nothing spectacular. The fish pie had plenty of seafood, was kind of hearty and filling, but tasted quite bland. The risotto, on the other hand, was flavorful enough but was presented poorly. Note we were the only patrons for the entire time we were there for lunch, and that's never a good...more
I find it difficult to write a review for a venue that I'm not that excited about, but I feel that it is my responsibility to inform others that are considering trying it out. Geales is one of those places.
Before coming here, I read all of the reviews on Yelp. The reviews are pretty mixed, and I wanted to discover for myself how many stars this place really deserves.

When in London you have to try their fish and chips! It's a must! Geales is in Notting Hill which is very accessible taking the tube.
