Firstly, you have to book, this place is busy and the atmosphere is great. The service and quality of food is top notch and highly recommended as a fun night out. It has to be one of the best informal restaurants you could hope for. For us UK customers £40 for two with wine at a top place like this... More

Everyone here is great - wonderful staff and the owners are super friendly. The menu changes, and the fresh fish is where you should focus your attention. The food was outstanding!

Calamari was a bit overcooked and tough. For a main course I had the grilled yellowtail with prawns, and my friend had the kingklip cajun style. The cajun style is... More

It's hard to surprise us with new ways and delicious ways to prepare fish (which we love), but Miller's Thumb succeeded. Jane, the co-owner and hostess, helped us to match one of the many appealing-sounding preparations to each of our choices of fish (kingklip and kob). Trust her judgment--both were fabulous. Food and wine were both quite reasonably priced. We... More

A short walk form Walden House where we stayed. Friday night meal fairly late, as they were very busy. Lively, friendly atmosphere. Well designed decor etc. Good service and food/wine very good.

I was quiet surprised when I got a letter as a menu to Mrs Hungry. A wide selection of fish and delicious ways of preparing them. Difficult all sounded mouth watering as well as the steak with a chilli-chocolate sauce. Best was the warm peacannut dessert.

Family run restuarant great offering on the menu and a great selection of wines! My starter was nice sized oysters, and my main was Kinkclip. Whats unique to this restuarant is the various options of how you would like your food cooked - definately worht sa visit, booking essential - great service too!
