We recently visited this restaurant on the off chance and I'm really pleased we did. The place is owned by a husband and wife team. The food is fantastic with a very wide range of fish to choose from. I had klip- klip which was explained to me before ordering. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We went mid... More

Really liked this restaurant. Door was opened for us and we were made very welcome immediately. Service was friendly and good. The owner explained the specials of which I could have chosen all of them. I didn't catch the name of the beer on tap but it was really good. We are fish lovers so the restaurant was right up...

We had a great night at the hearty Millers Thumb. The menu was diverse and the atmosphere was lively. Lots of personality within these walls.

We went there with friends last month and they had heard that it is absolutely wonderful so we were looking forward to a fabulous meal. The wines were very pricey Im afraid, and the curry was just mediocre. The salads looked much better but I think its a rip off to pay R89 for a few lettuce leaves and some... More

Eight hungry people showed up on a weekend evening, thinking we had a secure reservation. Imagine our shock when we discovered our hotel had messed up, and the restaurant was sold out. We crowded into the tiny bar for wine and appetizers hoping to sample Miller's Thumbs menu without overwhelming the kitchen staff. Jane, the owner, managed to find us... More

A very popular restaurant featuring local fish. Make reservations. Some of the fish choices can be served with a selection of sauces: cajun, oriental, etc. My choice was the kingklip, a fish previously unknown to me. It was excellent. The atmosphere was upbeat and friendly. The service was efficient with obvious concern to the diner. We were delighted that it... More

From the friendly greeting at the door, to the great atmosphere, service and meal. This was a very enjoyable dining experience. Owner Jane was welcoming and attentive, taking time to walk us through the specials, and our server was excellent; Checking in on us just often enough that we never waited once to order extra drinks. We had the Kingklip... More

We were directed there by a tour guide for dinner and it was an excellent recommendation. It is a small establishment so I would recommend reservations, certainly for dinner. You will get personal attention from the wife of the couple who own it - the husband runs the kitchen. Waiters are characters and a lot of fun. Food and service... More

We were warmly welcomed by Jonathan who also served us all evening in a humorous way. We all enjoyed a great starter followed by various fish selections that were prepared in special and tasty ways. It's a very unique place that you must visit if you like fish. If we come back to Cape Town we definitely will be their... More
