Very good thin crust pizza

Recommend by the locals and we were not disappointed. Excellent pizza - we did take out so difficult to comment on atmosphere but product is very good

Have been here a few times. Booking essential, because it's great. On the second floor of a strip right next to the Camps Bay shopping centre, the dining room is sunny and warm for lunch. If you haven't been here before, your server will explain all the fishes to you, then you go up to the counter and pick your... More

Being in Cape Town, I was looking forward to some good seafood and Codfather happened to be near my hotel. As most other reviewers have mentioned, it's an interesting concept where there's no menu and but that also means that the seafood is/should be seasonal and fresh. I had the Mozambique prawns, which were huge, meaty and sweet and the... More

We enjoyed sushi to start and then had a small platter of seafood for mains which we selected. The sushi was excellent. I had tuna rolls with fresh chilli - really good. I would say the price of the sushi was average. We then moved onto mains. There is no menu. You select your seafood from the counter and it... More

Took a couple of friends for lunch at this famous institution in Camps Bay. No Menu to choose from but only pointing at the fish counter a la Chinoise but in this case giving you the uneasy feeling that you are taken for a ride when it comes to pricing. The sushi serving was gigantic but the fish dishes did... More

Despite the cheesy name, this was the best place we ate in Camps Bay. It's casual, the format is to pick your own sushi from the conveyor to start, then to select your fish from the counter which they'll price up and cook for you. The interaction in all this is great, and hearing which fish is which / local... More

Unique - just go - maybe book! The fish is laid out on a counter and you go up and tell them what you want to eat and how it should be cooked. There is also a sushi bar

The place is a MUST. Pricey, but worth it at least once. Of course I had lobster and calamari grilled. I also had the signature toffee pudding. Wow You will be full and satisfied.
