The restaurant is set within an old ship, with a fish tank constructed inside with various fish including shark swimming about while you eat. The food was really good, and the setting was fantastic!

The only negative comment is that, while it is a fish restaurant, given that is on the tourist map, and also caters for a variety of functions, there needs to be more than 1 vegetarian option (other than salads), to cater for a large group that may include a vegetarian person.

My husband planned our anniversary dinner here and what a treat. Really felt like a special night out. Got a great table right next to the tank. The service was absolutely wonderful. Food was a little underwhelming for price we paid but perhaps we chose incorrectly being more a seafood restaurant. Still felt like a treat and would go back for a special occasion.

Tucked away under the huge ship forming part of the uShaka experience is the Cargo Hold Restaurant with glass walls allowing you to look right into the shark tank. A great experience on its own. Service is good and staff is attentive. Prices are in line with what you would expect to pay at an upmarket venue. Food was well prepared and presentation was good. Have been a couple of times and will go back again.

Situated above and in the middle of the Seaworld marine Aquarium and in a "beached" Cargo ship - the Cargo Hold offers the most amazing cordon bleu culinary delights and an experience of note!

Visited this place just to experience the eating with the sharks.
Good atmosphere, but also very boring.
Food was great, and enjoyed the wines.
But it needs more spark...
