It’s not a secret that I’m a big fan of fish. I’m also a big fan of sustainability, and so Fish & Co entered my radar a long time ago. Considering the fact that it takes a 15-20 minute walk from home to get there, it sounded like a triple win to me.
Literally as soon as Alvaro got back from holidays back home, we went there for dinner with my sister. Service was terrific and very helpful when it came to choosing gluten-free dishes. We started with a ceviche of white fish, a more Central American/Mexican style of cebiche because it comes with avocado and tomato in addition to the traditional chili and lime marinade. The fish was super fresh and overall was a nice dish, although not as sour as we like it.

Our second dish was one of the specials, the oven-roasted salmon with creamy potatoes and za’atar zucchini. Overall a good dish, a bit subtle in flavours. Great potatoes, slightly dry salmon. While the balsamic reduction on the plate didn’t seem to belong with the rest of the ingredients it helped to moisten up the fish. The almond “crumble” that topped the fillet was an interesting and tasty addition.

Our final dish was the grilled fish of the day, served with a warm shallot and tomato dressing and a choice of side dish. The fish of the day was coorong yellow eye and our chosen side, green beans with roast almonds and hazelnut dressing. This was my favourite dish of the night, also delicate in flavours, and very buttery.

Overall this place deserves a top spot in my book because of their commitment to sustainable fish (which you can also buy raw to cook at home) and their excellent customer service. They also have an interesting beverages list featuring organic wines.
