“Nothing like it in the UK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

On our first evening in Camps Bay we went to the Codfather - since it was a sunday, it was especially busy, and we hadn't booked, but were offered a table down in the cellar. It should have felt like the "cheap seats" - but honestly? - we loved it, especially as we had the place to ourselves for much of the time. The waiter was great, and the fish was wonderful - make your selection from the chiller counter, be advised of the price, then settle down a short while later for dinner - served on a hot skillet to share. The calimari was the best I've ever tasted - no comparison to any I've eaten in the UK! We went back for our final night in Camps Bay and had a window table upstairs - but kind of missed eating in the quiet wine cellar, surrounded by all of those bottles .........

“great seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

we had been to the this restaurant 2 years ago and had to give it a 2nd go.

the atmosphere was great with lots going on and the staff were helpful.

i would say the sushi was the best i had tasted but it was nice. the fish counter is very different and the concept of choosing the fish you wish to have is great. i did feel a little pressured to try lots of the items and there are no prices to see before you have ordered the fish which i think should be mentioned somewhere. when the food arrived though it was well cooked and very tasty.

on the whole a really nice restaurant.

“Casual dining, fresh fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Interesting concept - you buy raw fish at a market counter, they then grill it and serve with limited sides and sauces (vegetables, potatoes). Desserts are great too. The staff is very friendly and ambience (harbor view) relaxing.
