We had a wonderful seafood meal, fresh and wholesome. Good service throughout. Efficient staff. In a tourist area but good quality and pricing.

If you like to wait this is the place for you. We were waiting for 40 minutes before we finally got our meal. Besides that the food was good and the view is nice. Wouldn’t recommend

The venue was good, the food was good, BUT There seems no co-ordination between back of restaurant and front. What dishes were gone, what wine they actually had. Menu both food and drink seems to have little alignment with what they actually have in stock.More

Description
Here at the greek fisherman, we are proud of our roots, so expect traditional greek and mediterranean dishes. But, we also believe in moving with the times, so we've added a modern twist to our otherwise classic menu. Our cuisine includes greek & seafood specialities and we are famous for our greek meze, our souvla (spit roast) and our stunning lamb in the oven. Choose from over 20 meze, starters and tapas! Established in 1992, the greek fisherman is one of the original restaurants in the v&a waterfront and is still owned by the same owners as when the victoria wharf, waterfront opened in 1992. Take a seat and get a glorious view of table mountain while you enjoy delicious seafood and meats grilled over open charcoals.
