Great sushi

Sushi was top notch & sea food side good too. But given a choice only went back for sushi was great to watch them make it while you ate 😀

We ate at the Cod Father twice in two days; once for dinner as a group of six, and once as a couple for lunch. The service on both occasions was great. The selection of fish available was really good and it was all cooked to perfection. The sushi is also fabulous. Great value too.

No menu was neat! Your host led you to the very fresh and awesome display window of assorted fish and shellfish for you to pick from. Almost as soon as I returned to my seat my food was served. It was spectacular! You can order any combination you want, they write a total down and show you, if you agree,... More

We were a group of 8 having a spontaneously organized dinner at the Codfather. Sushi and seafood was good quality. Unfortunately we were squeezed in, got a table were you can sit with a max of 6 small people. It is just not acceptable and was so uncomfortable that we will not return for sure.

The kingklip we had was cooked perfectly, we find the chips and stir fried vegetables were not good, however. I would have liked to have tried the prawns but felt the price of R39.00 per prawn (king sized) was a rip off (we are SA residents not travellers with Pounds or Euros). It is a very busy restaurant, however, and... More

We had dinner at the Codfather last week with family. The fish was of excellent quality but outrageously overpriced. There is no set menu and you go up to choose your fish deli style and then they bring you the price at the table to ask if you are ok with it, while all the people are watching you. The... More

We went there on recommendation of the hotel that we were staying in. The restaurant has a very good, lively atmosphere and all the seafood we had, including the sushi, was very good. Overall, a very good value: reasonably priced and very fresh seafood.

You MUST go here if you are in Camps Bay. Could not fault one thing. All the staff are very knowledgeable and are very eager to help. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Went on a recommendation from a friend, and liked it so mush we went back a second time. Served by Lucy both times who recommended the perfect selection of fish and shellfish that just right amount. Enjoyed a great medley of crayfish, langoustines, prawns, squid and butter fish. A must for anyone visiting Cape Town.
