It’s always easy to see and taste the difference between good fish and bad fish, and at Portsmouth’s Brasserie Fish & Grill, the quality is obvious. When your plate is set down a smile will appear on your face, which is exactly how things should be. Indeed, the fish and seafood at Brasserie Fish & Grill is known around Port Solent as some of the best available, whether for lunch, dinner or a special occasion. The restaurant is excellently located, too, right on the luxurious Port Solent Marina where you can watch the boats bob up and down as you enjoy fresh tastes of the ocean in a setting that’s relaxed. Perfect.
We had a good night and the food was great despite the fact we were the only four people in the restaurant all night ...... We did learn however that the Brasserie Fish and Grill was changing ownership to become a Indian restaurant Jan 5th 2018................Shame........
Greeted as soon as we arrived. Very attentive waitress who looked after us very well. Whitebait starter was excellent and Salmon very good too. Overall a very good experience
The meal was lovely as always. The service a little slow due to only two poor waitresses being rushed off their feet. Sadly we hear the restaurant is closing at the end of December to be replaced by an Indian Restaurant. We will definitely miss having the Fish Brasserie so close.
People of Portsmouth, you deserve to treat yourselves at Brasserie Fish & Grill, quite simply because it’s some of the best fish and seafood you’re going to find anywhere in the city. It’s a sophisticated restaurant in a glamorous location – at the Marina in Port Solent – but the atmosphere is laid back, almost as though a gentle ocean current is carrying it blissfully along. Inside the restaurant you can admire the quayside view of Port Solent Marina with a romantic table by the window, or reserve for a group and enjoy a big celebration. Whatever the occasion, the clean, crisp and elegant decor at Brasserie Fish & Grill will complement it perfectly.
The menu is fit to match such a setting, of course. Only the finest, local ingredients are used to complement an impressive selection of fish and seafood. Start with grilled sardines or a lobster bisque, then for mains enjoy freshly-caught Dover sole, whole sea bream or sea bass fillet. We’d also recommend the skate wings, topped with a light caper butter and sprinkling of Parsley, but whatever you choose, you can count on it being cooked to perfection. Traditional fish and chips are up for grabs if you fancy a bit of batter, but there’s also pasta, delightful vegetarian options and some dishes made up of meat from land-dwelling creatures, too. Brasserie Fish & Grill is one of our favourite restaurants in Portsmouth, and Port Solent is lucky to have it. Reserve a table now.
