About The Fishmarket Newhaven
Proper Seafood Restaurant located in the heart of Newhaven Harbour.
Great food - though service was not great.
Great food and great service - our window seat was much appreciated!
Service was terrible! We waited over an hour for three fish and chips and it was not terribly busy. I’ll most likely never go back there again.
Second visit and I think you need blinds for the windows. The sun hits you direct when you are seated. Fish is excellent, bit not everyone likes mushy peas...not a Scottish thing to serve, why not have garden peas??
Food was so fresh!
Excellent meal in lovely surroundings - best fish’n’chips in Edinburgh, had the sole goujons which were fabulous !!!
Seafood platter for 2. 1/2 lobster tail and dead man's fingers (full portion) no claws. Spider crab leg had not been fully crackers leaving one limb inedible. Shellfish not of notable size. Crab claws good. Langoustne good. Chips yummy. Manageress gave one glass of wine by way of apology. Will try the fish supper next time.
I never make feccomendations, no matter how good, only comments. A bit pricey for an upmarket chip shop , but fish and cooking very good. But chips not great . As to ambience , hard surfacing of surroundings pleasant and OK except in this situation please no background music as it make conversation impossible
Really enjoyed the Sea food. Excellent. Champagne and Oysters. Comments from my fellow diners.. all good. Definitely be back.
Fabulously fresh seafood, great relaxed atmosphere and attentive but unobtrusive service.
Food still excellent and service now bang-on. The best fish and chips in town and fantastic value for money.
Our salad order was forgotten about, we had to request it again, otherwise OK
2nd visit great service and food both times
Pleasant not loud restaurant. Friendly staff. Affordable enjoyable wine. The whole lobster was small and the claws under cooked, I sent one back and another (even smaller claw) was sent out. Chips were average and the mayo pot had had set with a skin on it. We were offered desserts on the house but moved on. The cold Langustine were a good size and pleasant.
Great casual dining atmosphere. Food was very good and excellent traditional fish and chips. Unfortunately the service didn't live up to the food with the staff being unaware of some tables and a feeling they were understaffed. If the service matches the food then it will be a winner.
Great lunch - very attentive staff accommodating two disabled wheelchair trolleys. My Mum and her friends enjoyed their day out. Thanks.
I booked online then was telephoned on the afternoon of the booking to say we would be seated at the Bar. As we were a party of 4 sitting in a line was not suitable. However when we arrived we were given a table and had an excellent visit to the Fishmarket. I think it should be made clear to online bookers that sitting at the bar may be an option. I would not have booked if I had known we might be sitting at the bar. Getting a phone call on a Friday afternoon at Festival time is too late to make an alternative booking. In the future I will book by telephone.
The food is outstanding and it’s a great place to eat, my only concern was the server didn’t speak very good English and was struggling to understand what a can of Coca Cola or Irn Bru was? Apparent from that it’s the fourth time I’ve been and I will continue to come back regularly as myself, friends and family love it
Great fish and chips by the sea!
Firstly we arrived and the waitress said they didn’t have a booking for us on the system although we had booked online and got confirmation. They did however find us a table as there were only 2 other people inside but if we had booked at popular time we could have been turned away. Service was mixed. The young man who served us was very good but the young lady didn’t bring everything we’d ordered and we had to ask more than once for extras such as peas and water. The battered monkfish was disappointing, too much batter and over cooked. We told the waitress who said she’d tell the chef but we still got charged for it. The fish and chips were fine but the mushy peas were not good at all, full of skin with little taste not like normal mushy peas we’re used to in the north. All in all we’d had high hopes for this restaurant but were really disappointed. Such a pity. I don’t think I’ve ever written such a negative review before.
Service a bit inexperienced - probably due to "teething" problems. Will give them some time and try them again.
Fantastic quality food & concept. Please add some green/mixed salads to the menu for those who do not eat chips.
First visit and thoroughly enjoyed. Fish was perfectly cooked and a crunch light batter. A little dissapointed that didnt come as standard with option pf tartar sause or mushy peas.
Really fantastic fish & chips! Children’s portion also great & was a big hit. Interesting drinks selection. Staff were welcoming & friendly. We’ll be back.
The food was good and we see this restaurant as a great addition to the neighbourhood. One thing I would note is that for the lunchtime crowd it would be good if it were a little more child-friendly - it would be really helpful if kids food arrived first, along with starters - our kids were very hungry/agitated by the time their food came. Our young children were also given their drinks in glasses that were not really suitable, ending up in one of the children's glass breaking as she was drinking from it. Other than that, it is a stylish eatery with a great seafood offering in a lovely location. We wish it lots of success.
