Blue Fish Café

15–17a Chiswell Portland DT5 1AN

Friendly, laid-back restaurant with stone walls and wooden floors inside, and a pleasant garden outside with tables beneath the shadow of the Chesil bank. It serves excellent a la carte dishes, such as whiting with squid ink risotto and baby octopus, alongside good-value two- and three-course set menus. Wednesday and Thursday are very popular moules-frîtes nights, when you can get a bowl of mussels, or a burger, with chips and a glass of wine or beer for £12.
