Unique fresh seafood dining

There is no menu at this fresh fish and seafood dining restaurant. They only serve what is fresh. You have the option to select as many different fish and seafood items and as much of each as you would like and they pan sear them on a grill. There were two of us, so we selected 6 different... read more

It is situated behind the Camps Bay Promenade and short walk to the beach. Parking in season can be a problem. There are many variety of local fishes to be had which is... More

This restaurant was excellent. There are no prices, the staff bring you to the fish counter and explain all that they have to offer. You choose as many different types of fish you wish to try (not too much of each) you pay by weight of fish. This meal is delivered to your table very quickly and beautifully cooked. I... More

My husband and I went here because he really wanted to have fresh seafood. He loved it and had a fantastic meal. I had called ahead since there is no menu and I don't eat seafood. The only thing they offer for non seafood eaters is chicken. I don't fault the restaurant for this at all, but it's good to... More

A whole new experience for me given no menu however it's fantastic as you select your own meal mixing selection of seafood and the size of your chosen delights. We had 4 fish, rock lobster, prawns and langostines every one cooked to perfection. The tiger prawns were to die for and the butterfish was melt in your mouth delicious. Service... More

For the freshest fish and shellfish go to Codfather Seafood and Sushi. Start off with the deliciously tempting sushi and then choose your fish and the size of it from the counter. It's just amazing.

This restaurant was recommended by our host in Cape Town and it was by far the best fish restaurant I have ever been. You don't order the fish by a menu, but you will be guided to a Fish display, where you can choose between the fresh kinds of fish they hunted this day. You will also choose the amount... More

We just returned back home after a 3 weeks stay in South Africa and had dinner at Codfather Seafood towards the end of our holidays. I agree with the comments I read about this restaurant here on Tripadvisor: nice concept, fresh seafood, restaurant is kind of cosy, the service was also good. But so many other restaurants in SA serve... More
