We found this fish restaurant by chance, and then went back twice more! Really fun and friendly atmosphere but excellent service too. Great choice of perfectly cooked fish plus some other good options on the menu. Would definitely recommend.

You pick the fish and the way you'd like it cooked. Relaxed atmosphere. Local flavor. Good wine and beer selection.

Miller's Thumb was a little treasure tucked away off the main city thoroughfares. Reservations are a must; you will not likely be seated if you have not pre-booked. Their fresh fish can be prepared any of several different ways, with some non-menu options announced at your table by the owner. The staff all worked together for a seamless dining experience....

The menu was very pleasing in that there was a list of different fresh fish that could be paired with a different preparation. Both our dishes were delicious. The wait staff and manager were very friendly and attentive. Definitely would recommend this little charming restaurant.

This restaurant is located only two blocks from our guest house. Staff are all very friendly and efficient, quite willing to explain the intricacies of the menu which changes each day. Terrific food in a really fun atmosphere.

I don't know what the perfect dining experience is but this comes close to it! Perfectly cooked fish with outstanding service from polite, attentive and well trained staff, nothing was too much for them. I know the chef is a co-owner and it shows, my wife had the Jumbalaya and I had Yellow Tail, delicious!

The owner of our B&B recommended the Miller's Thumb as a great place to enjoy fresh local seafood. We are so glad that he did. The food, wine and atmosphere were outstanding. The passion that the owners and employees had for their restaurant made the experience even better. This should be the first stop for anyone traveling to Cape Town
