“Light lunch, full on flavour!”
Review of Greek Fisherman

Greek Fisherman
Ranked #104 of 1 226 Restaurants in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Here at the greek fisherman, we are proud of our roots, so expect traditional greek and mediterranean dishes. But, we also believe in moving with the times, so we've added a modern twist to our otherwise classic menu. Our cuisine includes greek & seafood specialities and we are famous for our greek meze, our souvla (spit roast) and our stunning lamb in the oven. Choose from over 20 meze, starters and tapas! Established in 1992, the greek fisherman is one of the original restaurants in the v&a waterfront and is still owned by the same owners as when the victoria wharf, waterfront opened in 1992. Take a seat and get a glorious view of table mountain while you enjoy delicious seafood and meats grilled over open charcoals.

We had a intense flavour experience during our light lunch! Even though we only had starters and dessert, we were blown away by the taste! Our waiter, Leslie, was friendly and attentive. Very nice!

Awesome, ask for (Waiter) Godfrey. He's very friendly and he's service is excellent such as the "Greek Fisherman". Highly recommended place for everyone!

The food fresh and very well presented. The combination of sardines and halloumi cheese just palatable. Great food, great service, great views....the place to eat

Went for dinner with my husband and I was underwhelmed. The service wasn't great. The prawns were rubbery. My husband had the seafood platter which also wasn't great. Not the worst dining experience ever but certainly very far from the best. Not much better than Ocean Basket I'm afraid. However I must add that the "front of house" is very welcoming and very friendly....the ambience is nice and the view of the CT skyline from the deck is beautiful!

Dear Reviewer

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. As you can see from the great number of positive reviews on this site, we generally over deliver to our customers. It would have been great if you brought your dissatisfaction to our attention on the evening. We prefer not to mention other restaurants in our responses, but as seafood experts, we doubt very much that that our food can be compared to theirs.

Kind Regards
Management

I had checked the reviews on TA before we left for Cape Town. On Monday night. 20th March when we were looking for somewhere to eat, it was SO busy - holiday the next day, so lots of people around, but the V&A waterfront is the best place to be. We managed to squeeze into a table for 2 at the Greek Fisherman. Service was fine, the steaks were good and the local wine was a good choice.

The reviews were right, a great night out
