Good service, very mediocre food served in a chaotic restaurant. The most expensive meal in South Africa and the worst.

Our group of 6 ate here for our last meal in South Africa and we were not disappointed with our choice. Fabulous sushi plates to start are great value and then you select your seafood from the counter to be cooked for the table. The butterfish is a must try along with fresh langoustines. Crayfish were slightly underwhelming but the... More

Glad this was recommended otherwise easy to walk past What a fabulous experience, fantastic atmosphere, excellent staff and you will have to go a very long way to beat this beautiful range of seafood cooked to perfection Probably my best meal in South Africa

We have been to the codfather every year for the past 14. the sushi has got better and the bill more transparent over the years. The concierge at our hotel booked us for 7:30 and confirmed by Elvis. We got there at 7:28 to be told that the table had been given away and no space left! Very poor -... More

Always a danger of disappointment with a place so highly rated, all a bit chaotic and noisy for us, and we've had better fish at much lower prices. Long battle afterwards to avoid a massive amount of service charges which we objected to

We came here for our Goodbye dinner after a three weeks holiday. We did not get disappointed! The sushi as starter I can definitely recommend. For main we shared a platter of seafood which was delicious. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time!

We went to Codfather for lunch after seeing the whopping 5 star reviews of it everywhere. The staff were really nice and the fish was delicious but overall I though the experience/place was overrated. To me it's an average fresh seafood place and not much more. The atmosphere is regular and one side of the restaurant smells super fishy which... More

Codfather has a great selection of fresh fish. The calamari and king clip are our favourites. The calamari is delicious- no batter, just spices that allow you to enjoy the taste. Simply cooked seafood with rice, fries or vegetables and dipping sauces on the side - so delicious. During peak season go early (5:30ish) to avoid the crowds and noise... More

The fish was excellent here. They had a wide range of cooked fish and sushi. The sushi platter was particularly my favorite. The cooked selection was also very nice. The waiter went through every fish they had available and described their texture and taste. Over all it was a great experience. One comment, be sure to ask process first because... More
