Mr. Shanahan, one of the country’s leading seafood chefs, founded Fishy Fishy in 2006 and today has a capacity for 160 customers.

The restaurant includes The Blue Room, which opened in 2019 and features a private bar and balcony with harbor views.

Management Board remuneration more than tripled in the past year from €99,087 to €310,096 and consists of €122,598 in remuneration and €187,498 in pension contributions.

The award-winning restaurant is run by Martin and his wife, Marie Shanahan.
