Had a great meal here. Excellent value sashimi followed by a whole red mullet for me and lobster for the missus. As much as we could eat of top quality food at a very reasonable price. Plenty of excellent S.A. wines by the glass as well.

This was our first time at any Fishmonger and we were looking forward to it. We were a party of 4 and wanted to go to the 'original' location. It was a beautiful evening and with the open walls to the front, even sitting just 'inside' the patio, it was still beautiful. Our server was excellent - helpful, attentive, polite, but not hovering.

We had a Greek salad for the table, with avo - which was unusually good. Fresh, crisp, flavourful and a very nice dressing. The fresh Portuguese rolls were also great - fresh, crispy crust and warm soft insides.

For mains, our table had 2 of the calamari extravanga (calamari prepared 3 ways), one order of the panga, and one trout almondine. All were excellent! Nothing was overcooked, and all the sides (chips for some, veggies for others) were great.

I would definitely go back there the next time I have a hankering for fish.

This is a very nice seafood franchise - the food is quite expensive but totally worth it. I had the line fish which happened to be sea bass, lovely dish and perfectly executed. My friend had sushi which was also excellent. The service was quick and efficient.

The location is not brilliant, it faces on the parking lot, but other than that I can't fault it.

We had a family supper at Fishmonger and had a wonderful experience, it's not cheap but the food was amazing. Only comment is that the waiters could be more attentative.
