We are residents of Pinelands and send our guests to Joe Fish regularly and often frequent the place ourselves. Regrettably last Saturday evening the waitron service was poor, the food ordinary and everything took forever and we had to continually ask to be served.It seemed like the regular staff were not there and those on duty were not equipped.
The sin of all sins was the hake was riddled with bones which made it difficult to eat!

For someone who likes fish and has been living in Cape Town for the past 14 years discovering Joe Fish in Pinelands was a real treat.
A little off the beaten track in the suburb of Pinelands they offer a really good experience.Pinelands is 15 to 20 minutes away from Cape Town center and well worth the short trip.

The restaurant has a family friendly atmosphere is situated on ground level with ample parking.

The menu is extensive and caters well for vegetarians.The Bouillabaisse is highly recommended and the portion was more than adequate.
Despite the name, Joe Fish the menu offers more than fish and some good looking meat options. Choosing was difficult.
The Wine selection is not large, but the wines on offer are good and compliment the food well.

We enjoyed the friendly service and the two waitresses seem to have fun and enjoy their work.

Keep in mind the restaurant closes at 21h00.

Good food and nice variety on menu. Never had a bad meal here. Prices reasonable. Try fishcakes, butter chicken, fish pie. All delicious! Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.

Joe Fish is our favourite place in Pinelands to eat, for nearly any meal. Their menu covers everything from comfort food to fine cuisine; the flavours are excellent and the portions generous. We particularly enjoy being able to take our (well behaved) Labrador along and be seated in the semi-outdoors area, which is heated in cold weather. The proprietors and staff are friendly, and we have not yet had a poor meal. The Legend burger and calamari salad are two firm favorites.

The fish is always fresh and the staff has always been very pleasant and attentive. The price is affordable and for the freshness and service, we kept going back. It's pretty much a second home for us and our folks who have been visiting them for years. Absolutely love the prawn puppies.
