A very popular seafood restaurant one street behind the seafront parade and upstairs😥. Well worth the climb and squeeze into a very busy restaurant on a Tuesday evening. We met up with friends from the UK who happened to be on holiday in Cape Town...More

one of the best fish restaurants I know and we are 'fish lovers'. The sidedish with vegetables were also delicious. The portion you can choose when you select your fish at the vitrine.

The seafood and food at the Codfather was really delicious. It was my first time at a restaurant where you pick out the food and then it gets cooked. It was really unique and cool. The prawns, fish and langoustine were out of this world....More
