About
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

BEST greek ( kleftiko) lamb in town ! Moving from its iconic position in the V&A Waterfront to a cosy, welcoming restaurant/ house on Sea Points vibey Main Rd has done nothing to detract from the delicious food and excellent service. I loved the inner...courtyard ( perfect on a balmy summer night) or hot summer day. We sat upstairs in a modern and cheerful room , as it was a nippy autumn day outside. Our waiter immedietely lit a fireplace making our lunch cosy and welcoming ( wonderful attention to detail) The menu was diverse , lots for vegetarians aswell as meat lovers and everyone at our table found their meal delicious. Gyro, kleftiko and calamari. Definitely ticked all my boxes Ambience Well priced Good service Memorable food Will be backMore

We ordered calamari which looked like mopani worms, small and dried out. The prawn souvlaki dish was bad and inconsistent as 2 people at the same table ordered it and looked completely different. I got the wrong order which had to be sent back and...the pitas was stale.More

This is when I visit this kind of space, that I wish I could work remotely... Unfortunately, I'm not and I had to take away to bring to the office... Just this glass window in wooden frame, with plants hanging in front of it makes...it all... When you walk in, you discover stoep, garden, courtyard, leather couch by a fire... the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a cup of tea... I ordered the Orange cake to take away. It was home made, it was fresh, and it was not too sweet not too fatty... I'll come back to try some other treats next time...More

I recently went to The Greek Fisherman with a few friends and had an amazing experience! The minute we walked through the door we were welcomed with friendly faces and got seated right away in a beautiful courtyard. The service was excellent, the food came...out quickly and was absolutely delicious!!! We ordered a bunch of different appetizers to share and it was the perfect amount of food, not to mention the Bloody Mary was also the best I’ve ever had. I would highly recommend this place. :)More

We thoroughly enjoyed a scrumptious al fresco lunch in a peaceful patio next to a beautiful water fountain. Excellent service, attentive staff and magnificent food! Opa! (Now located at 78 Regent Road, Sea Point).

The service was very friendly and pleasant. Not so much the food. Had the trio of hummus, tzakziki and taramasalata. All three were extremely thin, loose, runny. There was hardly any tarama in the salata. Only a few dots of roe on the top. Hummus...not flavorful and tzakziki so runny. (Cheap yogurt?)Hardly any bechamel in the veg moussaka. I'm very easy to please with Mediterranean food, so I'm not being overly picky. We were disappointed. I've had fabulous middle eastern and med food everywhere else in Cape Town. Sorry, but you need to step up your game.More

The restaurant is about 4km/2.5 miles from the city centre of Cape Town. I'm actually in a bit of a quandry as to what to say. The first time we went there was for lunch and the 5 of us ordered differing types of Yiro....Three of my friends said their food was good, and the other one said hers was ok. I ordered a lamb Yiro as did one of my guests who said hers was good. Mine was terrible, but I persevered thinking if all the others said theirs were good, perhaps I was just being pickey, I really wasn't. It was dry and tasteless. I decided to go again remembering how good the food was when they were at the waterfront, and hoping that it was just an aberation. Unfortunately my meal, was again terrible. Two of us ordered seared salmon. Obviously the chef did not have a clue what seared meant and presented us with salmon that would have been great if served as sushi. We asked the waiter/waitron/server to please ask the chef to actually sear it. It came back cooked. We ate it anyway. There were 10 of us at the dinner and 6 said their food was great. So perhaps it's just me.More

This is such a great unique location for summer breakfasts/brunch. We went here shortly after it opened hoping to find an alternative to the excellent choices nearby. How the owners can spend money on a restaurant set up but fail to think of the delivery...is shocking. The service is very poor and the food was less than ordinary. This was such an uninspiring visit. The coffee summed it up. Luke warm and weak in a small cup! A message to the owners,please just visit Jarryds,klinkseys,Mishu,Zest or Naked to see how to run a restaurant. To sum it up the energy level from the staff was a tiny fraction of the restaurants above. I hope you listen and change. Otherwise it is only the restaurant fitters that will benefit from your opening.More

I returned to my favourite restaurant on the Waterfront, and it was as good as two years ago. Delicious moussaka and a lovely large glass of rose wine. Frank looked after me as well as ever. You need to go the first floor to find...this restaurant - almost above Belthazar. Great view from there.More
