This place was fantastic. They have self service Sushi which was excellent. After sushi, we ordered from the cooler of fresh seafood. After you choose what seafood you want they then cook it to order the way you want it. The fresh seafood super fresh and wonderful. We had a great time and would love to go back if it... More

This place had great service & the food was unreal. Sushi bar is selfserve & perfect for appys! Then you go up to the counter & pick out your seafood, they weigh it & cook it to your liking! We had Butterfish, tuna, king prawns, and sides all to share. Id go back in a heartbeat.

Read reviews & expected a much better experience - beware of others comments, they appear to be getting carried away by the hype. They give you a 2 hour slot & rush you through at their convenience, not yours. Overcrowded because everybody turns up for the same allotted booking time, ours was 7 to 9 & they work hard to...

We went here twice during our stay in Camps Bay - first time because it was highly recommended by the small hotel we were staying in and by other guests there, then second time because the first had been so fabulous. Our first visit was excellent - the food was fabulous and the delightful Beauty November (apparently her real name!)... More

Good selection of seafood but nothing else on the menu - as the name of the restaurant would suggest! The sushi was really good as a starter. It was a little overpriced and overcrowded, and the staff weren't as attentive as we'd hoped for somewhere with such a high TripAdvisor rating - it felt like they were a bit complacent.... More

This is the 2nd time we have eaten at the Codfather, the restaurant itself is fairly basic but the ability to choose your own fresh fish and have it cooked to order is a real novelty the only downside is you can get carried away with the amount you order as you pay for it by weight, the food is...

You do not get to book a specific time for your table but you turn up for either the early evening sitting or later on. Once seated/ drinks delivered you then go to the fish counter to select your dish - to be honest it was like going up to the fish counter in a Supermarket.....it was noisy, difficult to... More

Fantastic seafood restaurant it was very busy on both occasions we visited, no menu you choose your fish from the counter with your server ego explains what it is, it's then weighed and priced and cooked to perfection Butter fish is superb so not to be missed as are the prawns I would suggest you definitely visit but booking is...

Dinner at the Codfather Restaurant is a unique experience. When you arrive you're taken to your table and your drink orders are taken. There are no menus here! Your waiter escorts you to a long display of all the fresh fish available that night. At our visit there were more than a dozen choices. The waiter tells you the name... More
