Found thins waterfront restaurant in the V&A Harbor area. Everyone was so friendly and we had some local dishes. I had the broiled seafood platter and my husband had an African fish stew dish. Both amazing. Nice settting, decent service and super location. Very good.

The best seafood we have had and you can tell it’s fresh. The staff are very efficient and helpful and the food it to die for. Great selection of wine and sushi. We visited twice in 2 weeks, would recommend for seafood and sushi.

The V&A waterfront with market, shops and restaurants is a great place to visit. Lots of things to do in the area with some stunning scenery. Well worth a visit.

My husband had the seafood paella, it was absolutely terrible, shells in the prawns. The sauce was thick and goopy instead of light. I had the calamari and chips, the calamari was stringy and tough.
