Experience sensational seafood fresh from the ocean and hot off the grill at this sophisticated harbour-side eatery at Cape Town’s bustling V&A Waterfront. All protein cuts are grilled on the state to the art Josper Charcoal Grill. This hybrid grill burns only top-quality charcoal and operates at an ultra-high temperature to allow us to grill and roast while preserving and enhancing the most deli

We had good seafood and service here. It is a little pricey by Cape Town but that is to be expected given its location.

Our first dining experience in the V&A Waterfront did not disappoint. My sirloin was cooked as requested (medium rare), though it was less tender than I had hoped. My wife's baby kingclip was really nice - fresh and perfectly cooked. Our side of vegetables (spinach,...More

The setting of Firefish was special - while on the 'main drag' of Waterfront eateries the views are worth the pedestrian position. From the pics online the restaurant looked elevated and a little more private. It was a cool day but we chose to sit...More

The location in the Waterfront could not be better, the service was friendly and efficient and the Caesar salad which my wife and I shared for a starter was excellent. Unfortunately both our main courses were a disappointment. My seared tuna was not seared but...More
