Went here to try the fish and wow was I pleased with what they served. I had the classic battered haddock but it came with a twist of potato cooked in soy sauce and spinach on the side. It was delicious! The fish was perfect and potato tasted so well on the tongue.
My boyfriend had the fish special of the day and the fish was seasoned so perfectly with Indian spices and it came with cooked...more
Nice ambience , great food. We had the eggs west hampstead and the bubble and squeak. Both dishes were really nice. Will definitely come back.
Minor downside, it took slightly longer than expected to get the food, but then again, it is better to have slow good food than rushed mediocre one.more
It feels slightly partisan but we still had some room. The service is always friendly. I just came here for a little snack of muesli and fruit. This was well served but appeared to be quite minimal. The fruit wasn't the tastiest and was limited to apples mainly. The yoghurt was also not the tastiest, although maybe it was meant to be plain. Although appears to be q favourite for more breakfast...more
I did like the place, the atmosphere and the food.Good service (very nice) I ordered the "hungover cure" (scramble eggs w/ chorizo, potatoes, black beans, salad + bloody Mary + coffe. Everithing was OK except the bloody Mary (if you like it, try it though, I'm not a big fan of it but I wanted to try it). Next time I will try something sweet like French toast.

The Wet Fish Cafe is a place for idealists. I mean this in the most positive way, as this place strives for more than just a place where you can eat something.
You get great food by people who love food. The atmosphere is nice and you isnatntly see and feel that this place isn't a generic business but a restaurant run by real people with a love for what they do.
