Excellent restaurant. Highly recommended. The sushi bar was the best that we have ever tasted, and at a very reasonable price. The fresh fish counter was a new experience for me, the waiter talks you through the wide variety of fresh fish cuts available and...you pick your own fillet which is then weighed and the price of the meal is determined.

What a great concept- wander through to the sushi bar to select a starter then head to the fishmonger’s counter to select main course. Great selection of fish and shellfish which arrives perfectly cooked at your table. Staff are lovely and atmosphere is great. Would...go again today but we’re moving on!More

Bit of a mixed bag overall for food, with good sushi and escolar(don't eat too much of it), but some of their other fish was cooked too much, making it tough and dry. Service was some of the same, not seeing if we wanted more...drinks at any point during our meal. Perhaps it's because of COVID that things weren't at their best. They have an interesting menu; you pick some seafood, they cook it, and you add different sauces as you eat. However, with this menu, they have no vegetarian options besides the sides(potato wedges, rice, and a stir fry of sorts). It was worth it to go for the niche style of restaurant, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go again.More

Tonight was the 2nd time within a week that my wife and I ate at Codfather's. Oddly, both times we had Kape as our waiter and Vusi as a helper. These two men are wonderful and they offer the best service. The first time we...visited we had fresh fish and this time we had sushi. The food was excellent and we will certainly be back. I would recommend coming early. I understand they get very busy in the evenings, which, in itself should tell you all you need to know.More

Really fresh sea food. No menu. Choose your fish and other seafood- they weigh and they grill. Served with excellent vegetables and rice but the chips were a bit over fried and not fresh. We tried the sushi as well. Not too bad. Prawns and...calamari was really well prepared.More

My husband and I have now been for dinner twice before a show at the Theatre on the Bay. There is a great view across the sea, the staff is friendly and efficient, the choice of fish is splendid, but the cooking oh woe. The...first time we went we complained that the fish was over cooked and the second time asked the counter staff to tell the chef to sear and not over do the fish. A pity to spoil great ingredients.More

Great place with very fresh fish and seafood which is well worth a visit. Some extra wow-factor for picking out your fish and seafood fresh and then having it cooked for you (you are charged based on weight). Perfect to pick a combination of things...and then share with your party. Good wine and service.More

We have never ordered like this before but it was amazing. We picked 4 different types of seafood from the case and left the rest to the chef. It was delicious!

My wife and I came here for a casual dinner. We loved everything about it. Great, casual and fun vibes, started off with a sushi appetizer from the rotating sushi then walked up to choose our fish. We ended up having a tasting platter of...5 different types of seafood. Each one was perfect and the sides and sauces were excellent. We wish this concept existing in the U.S. - we'd go all the time.More

We came to Camps Bay especially for this lunch. They weigh your seafood and you pay by what it weighs. They also have a great sushi counter where you can take items from the conveyor belt and straight to your table. We took a miss...of items. Amazing value, great food and they were very patient with our little boy who was exploring the venue.More

White fish, flat fish and other types of fish. But ask them or look at the menu on line as I seem to remember seeing alternatives- it’s great food
