    Beautiful restaurant with many different rooms. Acoustics were good as tables were spaced well apart. Had romaine and pork belly starter which was delicious albeit not a salad! My husband got the trout which was delicious. I had lobster which was very good. The service was slow. Not the waiter but the kitchen. As other reviewers commented we were offered free bread (biscuits or focaccia) to tide us over. The biscuits were fair and came with a strange tasting compound butter. It was nice but I wouldn’t recommend for the price. There are better spots.

    Over priced, under seasoned, poor service. Don’t recommend. There are other restaurants nearby with better food at a lower price point.

    Our waitress Laura was amazing and started our evening with a glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed a lobster dinner as well as a halibut one. We finished our experience with a complimentary dessert decorated in honour of our anniversary!!!

    The food was absolutely amazing. The 5 fishermen experience is a must try. The oysters were fabulous and quite big. My husband's steak was a great cut. We both enjoyed very unique old fashions, I am going to have to try and recreate them when we travel back home.

    We had a fabulous meal at Five Fishermen. Starting cocktails were delicious. The Five Fish Experience was enough to keep two women happy by sharing, then you could leave room for the delicious panna cotta. All in all, a five star experience!

    It was a great experience, I came to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful night. The food is good though serving time was a bit slow, instead of keep us waiting they served some free mussels. The lady served us also provided a small set of mini cakes to celebrate my birthday as present. It was really an amazing time.

    It was an excellent visit, and the perfect place to have a birthday celebration. Our server was incredible, attentive and knowledgeable on the dietary requirements of one of the guests. The birthday brownie at the end was a lovely touch. Overall, will be coming back for service again.
