The Wet Fish Cafe

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.
