My wife and I had a great Sunday dinner at SeaBreeze Fish & Shell. Still as good as it was when we visited a few years ago on our last trip to Cape Town. Service was very friendly and efficient. Wine guy let us taste...a couple of wines each as we only wanted wine by the glass, which was a nice touch. Food was excellent, obviously fish, which was cooked to perfection. Very relaxed evening, can’t wait to return.More

We ate on a busy Monday night, which is always a good sign. Smart place & friendly staff. The seafood we had was all excellent. The fish cake & mussels are highly recommended.

Absolutely delicious!!! We were lucky enough to visit for dinner over Christmas and the seafood selection was top notch, but also very fairly priced. The service was also brilliant and they also had a great selection of wines. Thoroughly recommend a visit!

Best meal we had over a full week in Cape Town. Lovely sea food & great wine selection. Fresh, flavoursome and healthy. Highly recommended.

A lovely experience with exceptionally friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. The food was excellent, particularly the pickled fish samoosas and seafood tagliatelle, but the service was the best we have experienced in Cape Town as the staff seem happy and passionate about the food and...wine, which made the evening really special.More

Looked at the previous reviews and was not disappointed- in fact if there was a 5* this place deserves it. A short menu, always a good sign, and happy hour on oysters between 5-6 pm. Wow - happy hour on cocktails between 5-7- so after...a dozen oysters, sadly shared, then moules and hake and fries plus a couple of mojitos- we were absolutely delighted with the food, drink and fantastic attention from very knowledgeable and caring staff. All praise though to the chef, the moules sauce was delicious taking a very humble dish to another level. Well done everyone- a delightful pleasure to visit you’re lovely restaurant. We may be back soon.More

I was recommended this as the best restaurant in town for seafood lovers by a friend regularly visiting Cape town for 20 years. Also several top level wineries recommended this. We shated some starters had great local oysters and amazing mains ( the talented chef...actually cooked cretovely outside of the list what he was best in mood to cook). Rooobos creme caramel was a great finish with local port, although I normally skip the sweets. Wine list was wide and young sommelier excited to hear oir views after +1000 🇿🇦wines taasyed in past 10 days. Friend says you cant consider been in Cape Town if the Seabreeze missed.More

I first came here 4 years ago when it was quiet but good. This time the restaurant was buzzing when we walked in but also cosy. My starter was the hake ceviche. I cannot explain how exquisite this dish was, the hake was so so...soft, almost indetectable that it had not been cooked, but the lime had done its job, subtly. Ink mayonnaise was a light touch that complimented perfectly. Battered fish and chips for main. Fish on the small side but tasted fresh and yum. I particularly enjoyed the offer to taste wines to help us make a choice. We were offered a few tastings which added to the delight of the restaurant. Service was excellent. Really enjoyed my evening and will definitely be back when in CT.More

This was an awful evening with little attention to detail and poor sense of service. I ordered a Caesar salad with uncooked/raw tuna. The waitress confirmed the uncooked tuna entered into her device. Seared tuna arrived with the salad - another person came ( a...manager) to the table to confirm the raw/uncooked tuna. Salad returned to the kitchen and back to the table with 1 side showing raw - underside same seared tuna.!! They seem surprised that I would not eat anything at that restaurant - nor will I return. Only once manager was called to the table was any attention placed on completely wrong order - 2nd manager apologized for the poor service - don't waste time going to this restaurant.More

Everything was perfect. Service, advice about food and wine. Flavours of the food where perfectly matched. Good atmosphere. It's definitely a place to visit if you are in Cape Town and like good (fish) food.

Amazing decor and super friendly staff. For starters we had oysters and tacos for starters and then the most amazing kingklip fillet with a mild curry sauce. Would happily return here.
