There’s a warm and inviting atmosphere at Fish Game, Canary Wharf’s recently opened restaurant serving up, well – fish and game. It does what it says on the tin very well and with a twist – combining British seasonal produce with classic Italian cooking due to the influence of Genoan-born owner, Roberto Costa. Adding to the glamour and lights of the surrounding area, Fish Game offers something a little different amongst the nearby restaurants.
Most of the dishes are simply cooked over an ash and charcoal grill in the open kitchen. From beautifully fresh line caught Cornish monkfish with rosemary, lime and smoked Maldon salt, to the juicy Angus Aberdeen beef ribeye, served off the bone alongside a deeply creamy bone marrow. For sides, the light fennel and orange slaw works well with the mains, as do the excellent, crispy on the outside triple-cooked rosemary and parmesan chips.
There are some interesting starters: chilli lime marinated grilled octopus and bone marrow with a chilli sauce and candied lime; Moray Firth squid with fermented chilli and fried Cavalo Nero and one of our favourites, the Sicilian arancini made with Great Windsor Park game and served with a next level whisky ketchup.
With more than 200 wines to choose from and an Agave bar, you won’t be short of finding something delicious to pair with your meal. The tiramisu or apple tart make for a perfect ending to the meal.
