My wife and I went here in December. We love fine dining and really enjoyed our experience here. Its more a restaurant experience but still really great! The food quality is amazing but different because of the Japanese twist on it. The restaurant is really...beautiful and such an amazing time at the restaurant. Would recommend this restaurant anytime for someone that loves fine dining.More

What a wonderful, well executed, theatrical fine dining experience. Food 🍱 was excellent and service was 10/10. A must for Kaseiki experience and food enthusiasts.

Superb food. Possibly the finest dining on the continent. The menu has changed a little, to Asian/Japanese style cuisine. Simply the most delicious combos I have enjoyed in South Africa. Well done guys, everything from service to the plates were exceptional.

It was my first visit to Fyn and what a pleasant surprise. Great food, great view, nice wines and great service. Value for money. The pork belly was amazing.

Incredible food and possibly even better service...comes at a price. However, if it's excellence you're after, this is the place for you. Very relaxed atmosphere in the centre of the city. Location is a bit unfortunate...upstairs in a building in the Centre of town but...otherwise, there is little to complain about. Modern and very cutting edge, food and decor are outstanding.More

The eight-course meal which was served was truly exceptional. Each individual serving was a delight. Probably our best ding experience ever

I went there during restaurant week. The service was perfect, from the booking stage to the table. The atmosphere as well. I loved the hanging decoration and this old building vibe... The food was good and very Japanese inspired, but I was not amazed. It...remains a good place for having a good and fine meal.More

Difficult to describe a near perfect epicurean experience. Wonderful warm greeting by Jennifer and a glass of very good champagne. This was followed by expertly prepared outstanding food. The service was equally outstanding. Apart from exceptional cuisine and service, Fyn offers a la carte menu,...such a pleasant departure from other restaurants which force the customer to consume 8/10 dishes from a fixed "gourmet menu" at vastly inflated prices. Memorable lunch and many thanks to Jennifer and her team.More

I was fortunate to have dinner again at this very special restaurant! I am a small eater so they accommodated me by providing a menu that suited my taste. We were greeted with a beautiful champagne and an elbow hug from Jennifer the co- owner....I had the winter fish menu which was sublime. Every dish on that menu really showcased a lot of skill with great flavour combinations and fantastic control! It was so true to Fyn style of South African / Japanese epicurean flair! Absolutely honest cooking!! The dish of the evening for me was the Outshoorn ostrich egg custard with new season morel mushrooms and truffle!! Intense flavours packing a punch!! I definitely enjoyed this dish very much and can eat it again and again!!massive thanks to Jennifer, Peter and their excellent team for an amazing evening!! 😘💕💃🏿More

Simply delicious food. Can’t praise it highly enough. We have had several Dine in dinners & everything from the prompt, polite delivery to the easily followed instructions have been excellent. Well done Fyn.

Hi, there are a few parking bays out front but only a handful- we do advise Ubering in, that way you will be able to enjoy our amazing wines and cocktails as well.
