Using fish caught off British waters, Fish at 85 in Cardiff serves fresh produce, caught daily, and prepared to each diner’s preference. On the site of a working fishmongers, the restaurant expert knowledge goes into every meal.
Adapting to the availability of produce, the Fish at 85 menu showcases fresh, carefully sourced ingredients. Matching fresh fish with exciting flavours, expect the likes of scallops with asparagus and dry sherry, monkfish with green chili and spinach, or build your own dish by choosing the fish, cooking method, accompaniments and sauce. The classics aren’t neglected however, with roast cod and potatoes served with the added panache you’d expect from an expert fishmongers.
Rich desserts complete the menu, with a lemon posset and a hot plum pudding with custard amongst the indulgent options. Simple but charming, wooden-panelled walls and black tiled flooring lend the restaurant a rustic yet contemporary feel.
In the Pontcanna area of the city, Fish at 85 is a 7-minute drive from Cardiff Central Train Station.

excellent on the fish (which is what it's all about); less so on the cheese (why no Welsh cheeses asked my English dining companion; cheapo biscuits, frozen - yes, you read that correctly - grapes, a culinary first) only one pudding on offer (something about a new chef operating alone and still finding his feet) - service got slower as the meal progressed and the restaurant filled up (the single chef working his socks off presumably) - still one of the best restaurants around for the £100 price we paid for bottle of wine, starter and main for two and cheese platter to share, and the fish was as always very fresh and beautifully prepared - go and support one of the jewels of the Cardiff restaurant scene

Excellent meal. The restaurant had a new chef working there the evening we visited. The menu was more limited, but there was enough choice. We both had the smoked mackerel pate as a starter and fillets of sea bass as main. Both were delicious. With a glass of wine and coffee, the bill came to £37.00 each. Not cheap for a mid-week meal, but worth every penny. The combination of the pleasant ambiance in the restaurant and excellent food means we will certainly go again.

This was my second visit, having been treated to lunch for my birthday a few months ago. This is a lovely, unpretentious restaurant, particularly given the outstanding standard of the food. My sister-in-law and I were welcomed warmly and chose to have the two course lunch. Some people might say the menu choices were limited, but given that both she and I could have chosen each and every dish, at least we were spared having to deliberate for a very long time. We both enjoyed each of our chosen courses and completely cleared our plates! We chose a NZ Sauvignon Blanc to accompany our meal and a simple Anericano coffee to finish. The service was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. All in all an excellent experience. I have already posted on Facebook to encourage friends to visit!

As fish/seafood lovers we had been keen to try this restaurant for a while so I booked a table for our 31st wedding anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent. Starters were shared - Scallops cooked to perfection and a smoked haddock Scotch Egg. Mains were plaice with herb crushed potatoes and Salmon with a bean stew. Dessert was Eton Mess and Cheese Board. Plus points were the quality of the food across all courses, the preparation and the presentation. The waiter apologised for our 'waiting time' to be served and gave me a glass of wine 'gratis'. Personally, I didn't think there was an issue. I'm more than happy to wait between courses when the delivered dish is as good as we got. My only criticism was of the Cheeseboard which, at just under £10 I thought was a little overpriced.

Unfortunately we were left a little disappointed. We chose Fish at 85 for a special celebration dinner based on the images and menu on the website which were inviting. On arrival there was no fish counter display from which to choose your fish, as suggested by the website, and the menu held only four main course options. I'm not a connoisseur of exotic fish but I am an enthusiastic and regular eater of good 'ol fish and chips so that's what I ordered thinking most places do fish and chips pretty well so this speciality establishment are going to blow me away. Both fish and chips arrived almost mahogany brown and to most people would have looked overcooked. The chunky chips were a little soggy and it was all rather average. I didn't point this out at the time because both chef and server were aware of what was being brought to the table so must have considered it correct. My partner had the turbot which she said was excellent but was also disappointed by the lack of choice, including cooking options as suggested by the website. The service was warm, friendly and welcoming.

We were very impressed with our meal. Really very good value for money and absolutely delicious. Scallops as a first course were particularly memorable and the sauvignon blanc was excellent. Very friendly staff - we were "waited on" by the owner because of an unforseen problem and he even gave us a discount on our bill because of not having had a "proper" waiter! We would recommend eating here without hesitation.
