    Fantastic restaurant. The fish and chips is so fresh and tasty! We also had the lemon curd and cheesecake, which were delicious too. We live in England but this is our second visit to this restaurant!

    GREAT FOOD!!! We will be back for sure. I was so full I couldn't eat dessert but the brownie looked amazing. Rita's fish and chips is so good, try the breading of the moment!

    Small but delicious menu. People come for the amazing, crispy fried fish. You should also not miss the fantastic french fries, zippy tartar sauce and hefty bacon cheddar sandwich. Honestly, they also make the best onion rings I have ever had (and I eat ALOT of onion rings). Friendly staff double as talented chefs.

    Exceptional food. Fresh battered fish just like back home. Welcoming of dogs. Lacked music or ambiance, but who needs that if you have good food.

    My wife fancied some fish and chips so we decided to go to the Fat Mermaid. The waitress was very welcoming to us and sat us upstairs. We both ordered the fish and chips meal with drink and dessert. The food arrived at a reasonable time. The food itself was scrumptious especially the chips. The chocolate mousse was amazing too. When I went to pay, the gentleman was really friendly and asked us if we enjoyed our meal which we did! He said they’ve been open for 3 years now. At this rate with the food and service, they can easily stay open for another 30 years!

    Absolutely superb. We have had fish and chips in England where we lived, all over the US, in Australia etc. this is world class. The batter is perfect and light and crispy - not too thick. Chips were true high quality British style chips. The cod quality was A+. Highly recommend.

    This place was fantastic! I had researched a few places prior to arriving at Nice and The Fat Mermaid was one of them that had caught my eye. My husband and I both had the fish and chips. I had the original and me husband had the special breading of the day (which was Guinness). Both were great! Tasty fries and really good coleslaw. I had the mushy peas, which were just that. Mashed peas. I loved them! The restaurant was on a narrow street lined steet with several restaurants. We made a reservation and arrived at 7:30 on a Thursday night. It was still fairly empty at that time so we were able to sit at one of the few outdoor tables, which was awesome for people watching and relaxing. By the time we left the restaurant was full, so I'd suggest come early or make a reservation as it's a small space with limited tables. The service was what really made our experience. Our server was an absolute delight. She was friendly and warm and make great beer suggestions. My husband and I have been collecting bottle caps of all the better we tried while e have been in France. We aksed to keep our caps and the reasoning behind it, and after the meal was over she brought us out a handful of bottle caps from local brews, which was incredibly thoughtful! The food, atmosphere, and service was really wonderful, so glad we went!
