The Codfather has numerous very good recommendations on Trip Advisor so one more may be one too many but here goes. As the name suggests the restaurant serves seafood but only of the highest quality. All the staff have been to charm school and there is nothing wrong in that. We enjoyed our meal very much indeed in what was... More

No prices listed and the fish isn't what you choose but rather fish stored under the counter . The fishes flavour was killed by the Cajun spice blend and I was miss sold langoustine as a small lobster . The... More

We sat at the sushi train and enjoyed a number of dishes. Made directly in front of you and can pick off straight away. Dishes colour coded so you know how much your dinner is coming to. Also options to sit down in the restaurant and order a la carte. Good experience

This is a very special restaurant. Sushi on one side and fish on the other side however we could have sushi for starters. The sushi is a kaiten sushi, meaning the sushi is on a belt and you choose whichever you want. So good sushi!! The fish and the seafood is raw behind a counter and you choose whatever you... More

Unbelievable place, location and atmosphere. The butterfish was unreal and the fish counter surpassed my expectations. Wow - words can't describe how good this place was. Great wine also. Many thanks

Very fresh and tasty seafood. Need to really book in advance as it always full. A Cape Town must visit restaurant!

Although pricey by SA standards it's the best sea food place I've been to in Cape Town - which is impressive in itself. The broad variety of fish is cooked beautifully and the sushi is exquisite. The sashimi melts in the mouth.

Wasn't prepared for this, didn't expect this quality, it's advertised as the best fish and chips in Camps Bay, that doesn't do it any justice at all, it's the best place to eat seafood ever, full stop, end of story!! Voted by my wife, two eldest daughters and me, the two youngest ones just wasted some Sushi!! Expected of course.... More
