A café by day and smart brasserie by night, The Wet Fish Café & Brasserie is the perfect setting for cosy, romantic meals or buzzy weekend brunches. Set in one of London's historic 'wet fish' shops in West Hampstead, the original Art Deco wall tiles and eclectic interior create a warm, neighbourly atmosphere. The Wet Fish serves simple food cooked well - a short, seasonal menu of modern fish dishes as well as meat and veggie options. Cocktails and coffee are also signatures. The Early Bird menus are terrific value. Return your table by 8pm for an irresistible deal on the prix fixe menu. And Early Bird offers are available all evening every Monday.

Good buzzy atmosphere, and the place definitely has character. Got the breakfast salad and it was tasty, well cooked eggs and flavourful dressing, but it wasn't quite what I expected based on the menu description, which my friends also found with their meals. Overall decent food and friendly service, but overpriced compared to other options around.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.

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.
