Went this past Friday to the Rosebank branch for dinner with my husband. Restaurant was very busy, but we had a quieter table near the entrance (probably because I booked in advance). Our waiter Donald was efficient and not intrusive. For starters, I had the lobster bisque and my husband had the creamy mussels. Both were delicious and went very... More

Was staying at 54 on Bath and had steaks twice at The Grill House at Rosebank so tried restaurant next door called Fishmonger - somewhat modernistic and found service to be very good - wine special $11.00 USD - Sea Bass outstanding - making for an exceptional evening. TTL Bill with tip 6200.00 Rand or $61.00 USD

I dined with my family at the Rosebank Mall location, it appears this listing includes reviews from at least two locations. The restaurant is in a mall, clean and safe. Some of the best seafood I've had. Service was excellent, the manager set us up on their patio, and wheeled over a gas heater which took the chill off the... More

Great ambiance & Service. Staff friendly - I ordered a Espetada and received a sosatie - I was not amused as a Espetada hangs from a Hook - What I was served is not a espetada if it lies flat on a plate. I must however add that the meat was great and the Blue Cheese sauce the best I... More

Something about this place that keeps me coming back? I guess its the great way they prepare seafood. Always enjoyed my time and meals here, friends have commented about the good times they have had as well. We are always made to feel at home, and relaxed to enjoy our meal

Fishmongers in both Illovo and Rosebank never fail to deliver. Both are generally full and derive always good.

the original Fishmonger restaurant in Illovo is fantastic, but the one in the Firs Mall is just as good. the seafood is fresh and jolly good value especially if you are a foreigner as the exchange rate is in your favour. The servings are man sized so if you aren't starving skip the starter, they serve delicious warm crusty bread... More

I like everything from the food, service and environment , I'm talking about fishmonger in rosebank mall (JHB). Refined clientele and classy, from the" petit bourgeois " to the big one.

Not sure whether this is the Rosebank Fishmonger (as it says Johannesburg), but if it is, it is our favourite restaurant and we eat out a lot. Good food, good service, good venue.

Met friends here for lunch. I had a fillet as not in the mood for fish. Lovely piece of steak. The fish looked fresh and delicious as well as the Greek salad. Fresh tasty Portuguese rolls and fairly good service. I will be coming back for fish.
