This place is in a perfect spot at the Clock Tower V & A Waterfront.

Service is good and there is perpetual training going on.

Undoubtedly one of the best seafood options (cooked kind or sushi) at the Waterfront with incredible value and interesting takes on all kinds of dishes.

For me, it's somewhere between high end and medium. Nice and casual, yet a little more edgy. The selection is impressive.

Seating is outside on the deck or inside on the deck with full views or feet in the sand or sushi bar.

We went on a Sunday night by recommendation of our B&B host and were totally satisfied. Great food ( we loved the Eastern potje with excellent fish ) and nice service made our evening there outstanding. Yes , it might get busy from time to time but there is always someone who takes care about you . If you like seafood and you are visiting the waterfront area - have a look at the Fish Market restaurant - you will love it !

Enjoyed a nice set course menu with about a dozen colleagues. Nice menu options, good quality food. Awesome welcome drink - Very refreshing.
Everyone enjoyed the food, although the service was found to be a bit too relaxed.

Dropped in here one Sunday for lunch and found it to be very average. Calamari and chunky chips isn't easy to get wrong but guess what, it turned up and it had obviously been hanging around for a while and that's not how I like my calamari.

A good selection of standard and more unique seafood fare at this great location restaurant. Without a booking secured an outside table on a balmy evening with a great view. Great cocktails and food very substantial (Platters are great). Service prompt and friendly, several courtesy checks.
