Found this great place on our recent trip. The food is fresh and of a very good quality. The wine selection is also very good. The service was excellent and knowledgable. Great views of table mountain and the harbour. If your a great fan of fish and sushi this is the place to eat.

It says a lot about a restaurant if you can not only eat there as a solo female traveller but also feel very well looked after and enjoy your evening fully. The food was good, if not exceptional, and I couldn't have been better looked after. I started by sitting outside but it was a bit windy so the staff moved me to a window seat indoors, I spent a happy couple of hours people watching and enjoying the food and wine.

From our patio view over the waterfront, we had a delicious meal and only wished we could have tried more of the wonderful-sounding dishes. There are many choices of places to eat at V&A but most would not compare favorably to Firefish.

By the waterfront, beautiful setting and decor, excellent sushi and giant grilled shrimps. Pleasant service. Plates a little small.

We came for lunch on a Sunday and the Sushi was excellent, comparable to what we got in Japan, actually. Prices very fair for Waterfront setting.

One small point, many sushi platters they serve are 3 pieces, inconvenient for sharing, and they were unable to make platters of 4. If I were in charge, I would change this...
