Friendly staff accompanies one to a large cool show case where they display their abundance of fresh fish offer. Including Lobsters etc. Its up to you as a guest to choose and pick from the offer. One can eat as many fish in what kind of variety to one's liking. The will cut the fish up to your wishes before... More

Although extremely loud, our party of four enjoyedour evening of calamari, salad and sushi appetizers, king and spotted prawn and lagostinas, as well as tuna and a bottle of wine for $100 US - quite reasonable in our eyes. Once you chose your main meal of seafood the waiter prints the market price stickers and asks if that is acceptable.... More

Fresh fish. No menu. You go to the counter and select exactly which pieces of fish and seafood you would like. It;s cooked and brought to you with a selection of sauces and your choice of sides. And i can recommend a dessert of Malva pudding. A sweet local pudding like a treacle pudding, but Codfather's was the best we... More

My partner and I loved this place that we went twice during our 10 day stay in camps bay! Staff are knowledgeable about the food they serve and the platters of seafood are cooked to perfection! A must visit!

The food at the Codfather was the best fish I've ever had! It was great to be able to sample many different kinds of fish and local wine. My friend and I were so impressed we returned for a second time during our short visit to Cape Town and Camps Bay.

Was recommended this place by our guesthouse, a very good choice! Fish is fresh and cooked to perfection and exactly how we wanted it. Langoustines were out of this world. Extensive and reasonably priced wine list. Will visit again, highly recommended.

You can choose your fish, just like in a shop, almost straight from the fishman's boat, and have it served quickly with excellent vegetables.

We went there 2 weeks ago on recommendation, and it was perfect. At first it was a bit unusual as you have no menue or anything, but Lucy (who looked after us) helped us along on which fish to chose ( a wide choice to look at), advised us on the choice of wine etc. It was all scrumptous, and...

We went for dinner on Friday night - we have known about the restaurant for a while and having recently moved to Cape Town, we decided to try it. The restaurant itself is in serious need of a revamp. Everything is worn and quite grimy. Even though we found the food fresh and cooked well, it was obscenely expensive. We... More

We had completed a day of shark-diving and were pretty hungry - then we took on the task of driving ourselves (HINT: it is dark, the road is curvy -- take a taxi). The restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The seafood is presented in a long case so that you may select what you wish. It all sounded so good,... More
