Best Sushi I've ever had! Great Fish Restaurant!

We loved this place so much during our stay in Camps Bay we went back twice. The service is excellent and the seafood of the highest quality. The stunning views of the South Atlantic make for a perfect evening meal as a couple or as a group of friends. The selection of wines is also impressive. You... read more

Fresh seafood cooked simply, amazing sushi, great friendly staff. You get to select your seafood from the display so you choose how much room you've got after sampling the sushi as a starter. The oysters are also great according to my husband. Highly recommend dining there.

We were recommended Codfather by the hotel & it did not disappoint. We got a great wairt, Zeek, who couldn't be more helpful. Choosing your own fish by weight & sharing the platter was a lovely way to eat, everything cooked deliciously. Calamari starter was gorgeous, as was the sushi. Wanted to eat everything on the menu. Great atmosphere in... More

Turned up on spec and upstairs was full. Got offered a table in the compact and bijou cellar which was lovely. Never been to a restaurant without a menu before! Waiter was excellent taking us through the seafood on offer to make our choice. Top quality fresh food at affordable prices

I have been to Camps Bay on several occasions but never eaten here before. The fish and shellfish are really fresh and you get to choose your own menu. It was so good we returned later in the week and the langoustine are a must have as was the kingclip. Really friendly and helpful staff as well.

Have holidayed in Cape Town three times over the last 6 years and each time have paid a visit to this establishment. Never been disappointed! Can't say anything more. If you like seafood or sushi book a table!

We were only in Cape Town/Camps Bay for five nights and we ended up here two because it was so good. The seafood was absolutely delicious! The restaurant had a very nice ambiance as well.

This lady that served us was one of the best I have ever experienced. Unfortunately I have misplaced her name, but think it was Thobile. She was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was very good. The prices are quite steep, but well worth it.

Great service, even when the restaurant was really busy, but most of all, incredible seafood. As other reviewers have said, there is no menu, you go up to the fish counter,choose what you would like and they weigh it for you and tell you the price. We only ate from the main counter and so can not comment on the... More
