I again returned to Blowfish with friends from Zim. They love excellent food. They were blown away. The two ladies did choose the fish from the window. We had tuna steak, and I had Avo and Prawn salad and Fish and Chips. It was simply amazing. Including a great waitress and all the time to chat and catch up we needed. Again soon.

A lovely welcome, a well maintained dining area with wonderful views as well as consistently well prepared food EVERYTIME. Comfortable chairs and crisp linen make it so MUCH MORE of an experience. Booked again for Monday coming and looking forward to introduce two new friends to the venue. Many thanks.

We ended up at the Blowfish on a Monday evening and their Monday special was amazing value and great to eat. For R99 we got hake, prawns, mussels, calamari, rice, chips and stir fry veg and 3 sauces. It was all amazing excepting the hake which was less than par. We really enjoyed our evening there.

Blowfish restaurant in Dolphin Beach Hotel is a bit off the beaten path for most, but worth the detour. There are specials on most days, and half-price sushi on Sundays. While the offering is not premium, it is excellent value. The seared tuna steak comes highly recommended, and is far and away the most generous serviing I've ever received. The remainder of the menu is standard seafood fare. The restaurant's atmosphere is very relaxed and seating is usually not a problem. Part of the venue's appeal for me is that I'm able to stroll in from the beach and not worry about dress code. A price-friendly wine list also doesn't hurt. The best time of day to arrive is in time for sunset, with golden streamers reflecting off the Atlantic.

Even during the week we found this restaurant to be very popular.
It oversees the beach with a great view of Table Mountain across Table Bay.
A very nice selection of fish, pasta and sushi to choose from. Less choices in terms of meat but overall a very well balanced menu.
The pasta dishes were very filling but also very tasty. Little or no choice of sweet wines but otherwise plenty of wines to choose from.
Overall a very pleasant experience in a great location with helpful staff.
