“Fantastic seafood platter”
Review of Greek Fisherman

Greek Fisherman
Ranked #93 of 1 299 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 very good traditional seafood meal here with a starter trio of dips with pita and main of Ionian seafood feast (crayfish, prawns, calamari, linefish & mussels). Everything was perfectly cooked and season. The waiter (Sherif) was attentive, polite and friendly.

Went there for lunch. I had seafood pasta and partner had Greek salad. Both not hot. Seafood was clearly not fresh and prawns rock hard. Service relatively slow. Won’t be back.

Dear Reviewer

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I have to say, we are completely shocked to read this review, as we are quite famous for our authentic Greek Salad and our prawns. Service is something we are particularly known for as well. We serve hundreds of these dishes each day and the feedback we receive are all positive. Perhaps you just had a bad palate day.

Regards
Management

We visited this restaurant last week for dinner.The restaurant was very full with a large tour group. But the staff went out of their way to find us a table and make us welcome. We had the soup of the day which was vegetable soup, a huge bowl piping hot and full of vegetables. Delicious. I had the kingklip fish but was a little disappointed, as it did not have much flavour and the serving of rice added nothing to the dish.
My husband had the lamb chops and hand cut chips which were very good. We followed with Baklava and iced cream for dessert, I though the Baklava was a little soggy and lacked crispness.

I would recommend the restaurant for the fantastic soup, delicious lamb chops ,and helpful staff. We also had a discount off the meal by showing the Citysightseeing bus ticket.

As recommended by our tour agency, we came here for dinner. This restaurant is named The Greek Fisherman but the fish is really a no-go! Quite disappointing with the seafood. Nevertheless, the salad and lamb are awesome!

A group of 13 friends enjoyed a meal there. The grilled seafood skewers were delicious. The food was cooked to perfection. The service was very good.
