Very delicious fish platters! Nice tables outside but chilly in spring. Keep in mind that they have no alcohol license and you have to bring your own wine or beer.

During a trip from Australia we paid a visit with some local friends. Great location and first class food. FF has a BYO booze rule which is great, as you can take your own beer or wine--would recommend any time, especially on a nice day.

Excellent fish and great steaks. No bar, but you can bring your own beer and wine with no corkage charge. Very rustic setting with lovely fires burning all around. Staff are very helpful. Would highly recommend for a very enjoyable experience.

Unpretencious and high quality seafood in a relaxed outdoor setting. Friendly professional staff rounds off an exceptional experience well worth returning for.

BYO, basic, sand between the toes but such good fish and seafood. Definitely the best bisque I’ve had outside France and probably the best ever. Main course Kingklip cutlets beautifully cooked. If they hadn’t had a function we’d have been there two nights from two!

Simply the best seafood in the Cape. No license so take your own wine. Four of us the best Hake and Calamai we ever eaten.
