Smack Deli
26-28 Binney Street W1K 5BN
London
United Kingdom

Smack Lobster Roll Deli is a casual restaurant just off Bond Street station on Oxford Street serving lobster rolls for £7.50 (take away) or 9 (eat in). The restaurant is the new restaurant by the Goodman Restaurant group, that is also behind Goodman steakhouse, Burger and Lobster and the Beast. I guess seeing the success of Burger and Lobster, they wanted to create a cheaper way for people to enjoy lobster rolls (at Burger and Lobster it does cost £20).

The restaurant is very casual and you can either dine in or take away. If you chose to dine in, you pay a bit extra (it’s the law to pay VAT on dine-in but does not apply to takeaway). There is a ground floor dining area and a basement, both created in that slightly NY hipster style.

Rex and Mariano
2 St Anne's Court W1F 0AZ
London
United Kingdom

Rex and Mariano is a fish and seafood restaurant in Soho, but in many ways it is very different to your average fish and seafood restaurant. It is named after a Chelsea fishmonger Rex Goldsmith and Mariano who is from Sicily and helping the Goodman Restaurants group (the group who owns this restaurant besides Goodman, Beast and Burger and Lobster) bring the best of the catch from over there. The restaurant is located on a side street of Soho, and to find it, you need to know where to go. The restaurant is big and we booked a table of 6 people (and easily got a table), but I think you can just as easily do a walk in. The décor is quite plain, but generally bright and reminded me of a Southern European fish/ seafood tavern.

Lua
Carre Santa Caterina de alexandria 1 07108 Soller
Majorca
Spain

Before our trip to Majorca, we did quite a bit of research about the best restaurants on the island we should visit and Lua kept coming up in our research. As it was located in the town Soller where we were staying, it was extra convenient for us to visit it, which we did on a Friday lunch time. Lua is located in quite an interesting yellow corner building which stands out. Also most of the restaurants in Sollers are located closer to the water overlooking the boats, but Lua is one row behind them on a small hill, so you are slightly further away from the water, but the view from the 1st floor restaurant is probably better and you can see the port and the expensive boats. The interior of the restaurant seemed a bit more upscale than the other restaurants in the neighbourhood.

Caballito Del Mar
C/ Paseo Sagrera, 5 Palma de Mallorca
Majorca
Spain

Caballito Del Mar is a fish and seafood restaurant in Palma de Majorca, the capital city of the small Spanish island Majorca. Caballito Del Mar means a sea horse in Spanish and on Sunday before our flight back to London we wanted to have one last nice Spanish lunch. As it was a Sunday most of the high end restaurants we wanted to visit were closed, and very few restaurants were open. Initially we wanted to go to a tapas restaurant next to Caballito Del Mar which came highly recommended in various news articles, but that restaurant seemed to have closed down, and as so many places were closed and Caballito Del Mar looked quite nice, we decided to settle and eat there.

FishWorks
89 Marylebone High Street W1U 4QW
London
United Kingdom

I love cooking and cook a lot these days and one of my favourite places where to buy fish is FishWorks shop on Marylebone High Street. They always have the freshest and nicest fish in the shop and you can get premium lobster, tuna (the sort you eat raw), oysters and other amazing fish and shellfish. Besides the shop, they also have a restaurant and one day we decided to try it out and go there. Besides this Marylebone High Street restaurant, FishWorks also has a restaurant on Swallow Street near Piccadilly, where just like in the Marylebone one, they serve the freshest and highest quality seafood. A lot of restaurants say they serve fresh and sustainable seafood, but you can really taste it at Fish Works, and there is no doubt that this fish and shellfish is superior to a lot of the other ones you can get.

London
United Kingdom

The beast is a Norwegian red king crab and hand selected Nebraskan beef restaurant in London. It is located just north of Oxford street by Debenhams and is the new restaurant by the people behind Goodmans and Burger and Lobster. I had heard a lot about this restaurant, it has generated a lot of hype due to its unusual menu.

Rockfish Grill & Seafood Market
128 Whiteladies Road BS8 2
Bristol
United Kingdom

The Rockfish Grill and Seafood Market is a seafood and fish restaurant in Bristol owned by the celebrity chef Mitch Tonks. He also owns the restaurants “Rockfish” in Devon (Dartmouth, Plymouth, Torquay) which are very similar but slightly more casual. The Rockfish Grill and Seafood Market specialized in fresh seafood and quality meat cooked over charcoal burning fire. Their main aim is to get as fresh seafood as possible and they get their fish daily, mainly from fisheries in the South West of England. Rockfish restaurants actually have a saying written on their wall, “Tomorrow’s fish are still in the sea” which I found very funny and great.

Parkstone Bay Café
Turks Lane Poole BH14 8EW
Dorset
United Kingdom

I was trying to find on google the best restaurants in Poole and Parkstone Bay Café came up. Parkstone Bay Café is located on Turks Lane in Lilliput, Poole in the middle of the Parkstone Bay Marina and I guess mainly meant for the Parkstone Bay Marina users who keep their impressive sailing boats there. As you sit in Parkstone Bay Café you can watch the boats and the sea. The café has an outside and an indoor section. We had not booked and wanted to come here for lunch so we unfortunately could not get to sit outdoors as everything was fully booked and we barely managed to get a table inside. As we arrived here for lunch we also saw a lot of people having breakfast here, so you can come here at any part of the day, including for dinner (but book!).

Shell Bay Seafood Restaurant
Ferry Road BH19 3BA, Poole
Dorset
United Kingdom

Shell Bay Seafood Restaurant is a fish and seafood restaurant, as the name suggests, in Poole, Dorset. It is located just on the end of the Studland Bay, which is an amazing location as it overlooks the sea from so many different sides. It is absolutely beautiful to be sitting in the restaurant and watching the sea and the nature. We came here for lunch on a Saturday and it had a nice relaxing atmosphere and our waiter was very good.
