We had lunch and the fish was fresh and well prepared. Generally a good experience although we found the wine-by-the-glass to be exorbitantly expensive. Paying R174 for 3 glasses of wine is a total rip-off.

We always have a good meal here with the fresh line fish being the tastiest around our area, Sandton etc. The prawns are processed and small, and not up to standard! The Sushi is great!!!

Our waitron rattled off the specials and because I'm very fond of sea bass I ordered it from the specials menu. It was a very large portion, enough for 2 people, and at R280 a portion, was wasted on me because I took it home and never bothered to finish it. The wine by the glass that I ordered was... More

The fishmonger in Nicolway is a very safe bet if you like fish and are happy with the very average look, feel, presentation and service, and you are prepared to pay a slightly excessive price for it purely because of its trendy location.

Three times I have picked up the menu but end up ordering the same thing: Seafood Paella with a side order of onion rings. The Nicolway Centre has some nice stores which allows you to combine a shopping trip with a nice sit-down lunch offering consistently good food.

Both the food and the service is average and the waiter was very pushy with trying to get me to increase the value of my order. No wonder this restaurant is always half empty
