Don't miss the Cape Town Fish Market next to the Clock Tower at the V&A Waterfront. Best oysters ever! Try the salmon teriyaki and garlic butter prawns too! Worth it! Good service and value for money. Went in twice! Not to mention the excellent view from the terrace!

A colleague and I stopped in for a late brunch/early lunch. She is a fan of seafood and I am not. I found plenty on the menu to tempt me. She was very happy with her meal and I was pleased with mine. I went for the simple option of a burger and chips but it was prepared and presented... More

Their sushi is one of the best we've had in Cape Town and they serve freshly made wasabi every time. Service is really fast too!

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... More

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... More

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.

We usually eat at this restaurant at least once when we are in Cape Town because we have always enjoyed the food and have found the service to be pretty good. Our experience this time was exactly the same as in the past - good food well presented with friendly and reasonably efficient service. Not the cheapest restaurant in the... More
