“Batter was soggy, chips were only ok”
Review of The Fish Hatch - CLOSED

The Fish Hatch
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 August 2015

This place seems to have a name that it doesn't really live up to. Being connected to the Imperial Hotel, I expected a crispy, flaky batter, and fluffy, crisped chips. What I got was a soggy fillet of fish, and slightly soggy, possibly underdone chips. Will not be returning.

I have eaten here a number of times when I have had to work late. The quality of the fish and chips is excellent and the service is polite and very quick. I had hake and the batter was nice and light, not overly oily. Couldn't fault it.

Food was lovely, but shame about the old people that work there! They were extremely rude and did not have very good personal skills. Due to this rudeness, I will not be visiting again.

This place is great for grabbing a bite on the run, the fish is so fresh, they batter it while you wait, fresh local fish, real chips served with mussy peas and a slice of lemon... well worth trying out :-)

The fresh fish and chips and peas from this understated Fish Hatch are one of the best in Cork city. The fish is cooked right while you wait, and it has a very light batter. There is a great choice of fish, and it is just so, so fresh it is unbelievable. The chips are also cooked to perfection. A very reasonable price also. Don't miss out on a real treat.
