Nice place, good quality food, fresh fish cooked to your desire, with reasonable prices, and the staff was very kind. I would recommend this restaurant.

It is certainly one of the best fish chips I've ever had. We also had a delicious fish soup and to end the pudding dessert was wonderful. The staff ia kind and the price is fair (perhaps slightly below what I expected).

Best fish and chips around. I travel up from Sussex for my regular 'rock and chips', and it is well worth it. The only one I have found to compare is in North Devon.

We have been to the Seashell a number of times, both to the take-away and the actual restaurant. This is, without doubt, no ordinary fish & chip restaurant as the fish it sells is first rate and it chips are delicious, not greasy, soft on the outside and fluffly on the inside. If you order the battered or grilled fish and chips then you will not regret it! Fish comes with a choice of different batters, and popcorn is a great favourite. This time around I tried the fish cakes and they were a huge disappointment and didn't takes very nice. The fishcakes were served sitting in a pool of green sauce which covered the plate and that tasted unpleasant too. I think I was more cross with myself rather than the restaurant - I should have stuck to what the Seashell does best. The restaurant is not cheap but the portions are large and for chip lovers everywhere 'bottomless chips', i.e. if you finish your dish of chips then you can have this refilled without charge. If you love your fish and chips then the Seashell is definitely the best and we will be back very soon.

A friend visiting from abroad wanted fish and chips, and the Seashell was the obvious choice. I had never eaten in the restaurant before, though I have had takeaway in the past. It was a very positive experience - particularly the 'bottomless' chips and the charming staff, and all more elegant than I had expected. It was also a little more expensive than I had expected -- cod+bottomless chips at £15.95, for instance -- but it's a London restaurant, after all, and definitely a place to put on the list, especially as it's not far from my home.

It was very clean, friendly and helpful staff, with excellent food. We both had Smoked Salmon to start and I have never seen such large portions. For mains, I had the Halibut and my brother had Dover Sole on the bone. Both were cooked to perfection and delicious. The bottomless chips were great as were the Onion Rings we had as sides. For dessert we had Apple Cake and Spotted Dick which were good.

It has been many years since I last visited the Sea Shell, we bought friends from Germany on Saturday. The food was excellent but we had to wait sooooo long for our starters - we asked what had happened to them. There was only one portion of Rock Salmon when we ordered three so two of us had to make another choice - the waitress suggested Halibut but failed to mention it was one of the most expensive items on the menu - £26.50 per person as opposed to £18 for the Rock!!!! When my Halibut arrived it was not cooked enough as still very pink in one part with blood running - quite turned me off but frankly we had waited so long we just wanted to eat and so I left the uncooked portion. In summary - DISAPPOINTED. We MAY try again.

Visit was a business evening meal, to introduce my overseas guests to the UK tradition of fish and chips. the environment was very modern and clean, and we had good seats in quiet corner of the restauraunt. Service was pleasant and efficient. We all ordered cod and chips with mushy peas and pickles, and was very tasty. The only slight down is that the cost of the meal was a little on the high side.

The staff are pleasant enough and the fish delicious but if you didn't want conventional fish and chips, salmon was off, rock salmon was off, sea bass was off - leaving only exceptionally expensive Dover Sole at over £30 a portion. Delicious but still... and staff rigid. If you wanted vegetables not salad or chips, they charged extra. So, given unexciting chips (though delicious home made crisps on the table when we arrived) it was an expensive and not quite tip-top enough meal out. But the fish itself is brilliant.
