Eating out in Plymouth:

The city’s regeneration has tempted many restaurateurs to the area and its spot on the Devon Seafood coast ensures that the chefs have access to all the fresh fish, meat and vegetables they could ask for. Located next to the Aquarium is RockFish Sutton Harbour www.rockfishdevon.co.uk selling sustainable catch with harbour views. The historic harbour has many other fish bars and restaurants dotted around, serving up freshly caught local fish – remember to always ask if the fish has been sustainably caught before you order!
