Sa7el 2018: Fatfish at Stella di Mare


Fatfish serves grilled and fried seafood, seafood sandwiches, sides and desserts from a cozy beach shak on the Stella di Mare beach. We visited for an afternoon feast of seafood delights.

Signatures Dishes & Dishes Sampled

The menu at Fatfish is refreshing in its simplicity. Mix and match between grilled and fried seafood to create a seafood basket, or opt for seafood sandwiches with the sauce of your choice. We started off with a Prawn Tempura and it was exactly how we like it, crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, and chockfull of flavor. With the Prawn Tempura comes a serving of fries seasoned with their special spice mix. It’s rare to see fries of this quality, crispy, and without a drop of oil in sight.

We then moved on to the Fried Shrimp Sandwich, and once again it really hit the spot. The bread was fresh, and the shrimp cooked to perfection. We added some sauces to the sandwich, a dash of mayo, a bit of sweet chili, and were left speechless for a couple of minutes as we devoured bite after bite. Then came time for dessert, and we already knew exactly what we wanted: The Fried Snickers, an absolute must-try. We spoke to the owner who recounted the story of what inspired this eating spot, a night out at a fish ‘n chip shop in Scotland years ago. All orders were served in paper baskets, making it very convenient to carry to the beach.

Other Menu Options that Appealed & Beverage Options

Next time around, we want to try the Grilled Calamari Rings and the Salmon Croquettes. For dessert, Fatfish also serves Fried Mars and Fried Twix, and we’re still debating which one to try next time!

As for the beverage options, they keep it simple with cold soft drinks and water.

Décor & Ambience

Fatfish is a beach shack oozing with personality. Only serving to-go, so there’s no seating available. Customers just grab their seafood and head back to their sunbeds, or just order straight from the beach as waiters are always on the lookout.

The ambience is beachy, the waiters and cooks are very friendly and you can tell they’re all friends and excited to be part of this new venture.

Clientele mix: A bit of everything, whoever is on the beach that day, but the crowd seemed very outgoing and friendly in general.

Dress Code: Beachwear.

Price Range: Inexpensive.
