“Superb Fish Indeed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Had the sardines for the starter, and I must say those where the biggest sardines I ever came across not to mention tasty.

For the main had the stuffed kingklip, the kingklip was very nice but the stuffing was a bit too much in terms of the consistency, which made the light fish fillet a bit on the heavy side.

“Great Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Fishmonger- Illovo
Great Meal with generous portions and tasty. Table of 10 normally causes problems as there is alway something that is going to go wrong. Not this time, well done. The service was up to par with the quality of the food. Will be back.

“Good value and scrumptious meals”

The Fishmonger Franchise in South Africa has become a favourite due to the freshness of its food and the friendly service. It is suitable for anything from a business lunch to a family dinner and offers good value for money.
