We went for a Sunday lunch and decided to have one of the winter specials. The rump steak was cooked the way we ordered. The pork schnitzel was lovely,except that I ordered the sauce on the side, but the kitchen made a mistake by putting it on the meat, and left it to our waiter to apologize for the error.... More

What a great diversified restaurant which offers daily specials. It has a warm atmosphere and great service. The particular niche of this restaurant is that it is family friendly, with a kids play area. The sushi, is especially well priced with excellent discounts on a Sunday night, and great discounts around lunchtime during the week. If you are not into... More

We are there almost every Sunday night! Half-price sushi and 40% off all pizzas! And no I'm not fat... :) Their pizzas are super good, nicely baked and not to oily with a nice variety of toppings to choose from. Paul was our waiter and we would ask for him again from no on! Not that the others are bad...we... More

Had super supper. Open fireplace really adds to ambience but need to find a more smoke free means of starting. Portions were big and tasty. Good value for money with good service

Popped in to Jimmy the Fish for lunch. Opted for the lunch special of R149 for 2 courses. Choose a portuguese beef trinchardo for the starter and a seafood platter for mains. Plenty of very tasting food. The service was really good and our waitress really looked after her tables. a very pleasant lunch - just to much food .... More

Good food, great service and comfy atmosphere if you choose the right place to sit. They've recently renovated the restaurant. So this also brings something fresh to the table for all the casuals, like myself.

A quick "end of the long weekend afternoon" hunt for an open restaurant that could serve us some fish, led us to Jimmy the Fish. Looks and feels like our local Bossa Café in Somerset West. Similar menu, but much much better. Our food was fantastic. The friendly service was a bit slow though, despite the shop being relatively empty... More
