REVIEW: Sexy Fish London

The newest venture from the Caprice restaurant group, Sexy Fish, on the south-east corner of Berkeley Square in the heart of Mayfair, opens on 19th October. What started out as a fishy pop-up from sister restaurant 34,  nearby, called Gone Fishing, was exactly that, a fishing exercise. So now we know what’s behind the bright neon facade.

The 8,000 sq ft restaurant is designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and decorated with a couple of mermaids propping up the bar from Damien Hirst, lamp sculptures from Frank Gehry and a mural by Michael Roberts. The look and feel is mid-century glamour and refinement.

Here’s our guest reviewer: the restaurant is fantastic! The food is fantastic – we started with the pork belly and Japanese sausage skewers followed by a crab salad, beef tatami, soft shell crab and a miso-glazed Chilean sea bass, all served family style (which we loved). I wouldn’t recommend the sausage, which was like a frankfurter. BRING YOUR WALLET : all that, one cocktail each and a carafe of wine for two came to £90 a head, so it ain’t cheap!! The decor is phenomenal and the place has a real buzz and was still admitting people as we were leaving at 11.30 – it’ll be interesting to see how long the buzz lasts. ”
