The Codfather is an institution, and if you have been there, you will know why. You come in - better let the hotel make a reservation - you start with nice, but quite "regular" sushi. Then... you go to the counter, where all the fish and seafood of the day is on display. Everything is explained in all detail from... More

I absolutely loved this place. The seafood was so fresh and delicious - probably some of the best we've ever had. We tried the calamari (a must!!), the langoustines, the butter fish (melt in your mouth) and the sardines. The sauces were amazing, the seafood cooked to perfection. Highly highly recommend. Our waiter - Zibusiso - deserves a special mention.... More

We were recommended to try the Codfather by a friend who had visited CT before. Although it doesn't look much from the outside, when we entered the restaurant, with the blazing open fire in front of us..we immediately liked it! A great concept of not having a menu made a fantastic change. As a huge sushi fan, the moving conveyor... More

The lack of instructions make this restaurant difficult if you want a quick bite to eat. The only menu is a rather pricey wine list. The waiter explained but we were still not sure and ordered the cheapest wine on the menu. There is a sushi bar or you can have a fish starter, we went for main course only,... More

From the outside you would never expect it but this restaurant is a hidden gem! Especially if you like seafood. Once we arrived at the top of the stairs we were blown away by the fresh selections available. We were a bit overwhelmed and as I had a craving for sushi we just went and sat at the sushi bar....

Wonderful dinner. Fresh seafood that you order personally after checking all the fish, lobster, giant prawns, squid, etc that they show you and weight for you. Tasty sauces on the side.

A fantastic meal served in a different way. Service was superb (we had Ben) who was very funny as well. He kept my beer filled which was great as I didn't have to keep flagging him down. My daughter loved it too. Oh and the seafood was delicious

Food was very good. Only thing letting the place down was the service which always seemed too fast... Much as I like prompt service, i do like to put my knife and fork down before my empty plate is taken away....

Lively (loud) restaurant with attentive service. Took us a few minutes to figure out how to order with our waiter (there's a sushi bar, a menu and a seafood counter where you can order your seafood), but once we settled in, we were delighted by the freshness of the seafood. The langostines were our favorite - but you can't go... More
