Great view from the restaurant over table mountain and the bay. A blustery day as usual in those parts however we had a window table within the restaurant. Food and service were good, though some of the steaks were overdone. As you would expect it’s primarily a seafood restaurant with large selection of fish, shellfish and sushi - though other dishes are available.

We arrived at 6pm - a family group of 8 - and were coldly told by the unsmiling staff at the counter - we are fully booked. The restaurant was empty. The guests arrive in an hour - he said. We bought some sushi for the kids and left. We then called from the car and were told a table for 8 was available immediately- shocking treatment and very embarrassing as our family was down from the USA after years away.

Having frequented Blowfish often for sushi, we were extremely disappointed last evening. There was very little to almost nothing on the belt during the course of the early evening. When I complained to the manager, his response was, "oh well, too bad". It wasn't particularly busy, considering it is holiday season and the decision to go early, 18:30. Will not be going back there in a hurry. Our waiter, David, provided us with excellent service and did apologise for the lack of sushi on the belt.

The best Christmas lunch I had in many, many years. My partner and I ordered a seafood platter for two. The food was excellent. The service - we were attended to by Kim - was friendly and very efficient. The view over Table Bay, with ships queuing up in the bay to dock, was magnificent. Highly recommended.

Wonderful place, with friendly stuff, gorgeous views and great location.
I ordered Greek salad (vegan option) and some vegetarian sushi. The salad was ok, it wasn’t fresh. But sushi were really tasty.
I must say that, if Blowfish modifies their menu so it wouldn’t exclude vegans and gets serious about their salads, I would call it my top of the lists places in Table View. It has great vibe and can be perfect for romantic dinner or big family night out.
