Went here for dinner with my wife. Fresh sea food, doesn't smell fishy at all! Little on the deer side. Unimpressed with the waiters insisting on tip before we even had the opportunity to pay. Lively place. They bring fresh fish in which you choose at the counter and they will then cook and serve for you.

Great place to go for very fresh sea food. No menu, goes by weight, we discovered butter fish and had amazing shrimp.

We were a party of seven, with one picky 16 old dinner and a vegan. The waiter took us to the counter where we all chose our main course and we were then presented with the market prices prior to cooking, which I thought was a nice touch. The food was excellent and our vegan was able to get freshly... More

We went with a friend to Codfather, what a surprise that only the wine menu is available and has prices on it. There is no menu for the food and no prices anywhere on display. The wine is priced above average and per glass quite expensive. The food is really very good but the surprise comes with the bill when... More

A lovely restaurant in Camp's Bay. Instead of a normal menu, you get to choose your piece (and size) of fresh fish and portion of seafood. Lovely wide variety. We had the kingklip and prawns. Delicious. For starters you get to choose your sushi from an impressive sushi train. Will definitely be back next time we are in Cape Town.

Codfather is like a market place restaurant. With only visual menus, you get to choose the freshest and delicious seafood in Cape Town. Would definitely eat here again.

Oh my word - I don't know what to say! This was amazing a the sushi was very fresh and the ability to choose your seafood and the amount you wanted was fantastic! My kids (ages 11 and 9) also loves this place. The fact that they could choose what they wanted to eat - even my son who doesn't... More

Visited camps bay on our South African trip and visited codfathers on the recommendation of a friend and got a table luckily at short notice and we weren't disappointed. You choose your seafood from the tanks at the front. Slightly more expensive than average in Cape Town but worth it.
