Description: Fishmonger Restaurant (located at 50 East Road, Avondale & under new management in 2012) offers freshly-sourced Portuguese-styled seafood dishes & platters; a variety of crisp salads; local & imported wines & meat/ poultry options for the non-fish eater. Entrees are served with a choice of chips, rice or potato. Close to the CBD, the avenues & the central hub of the Avondale area, it is well placed & convenient for business lunches, special occasion dinners & family-oriented Sunday lunches. Supervision of the dishes, as well as fresh seafood & fish brought in directly from Mozambique or the Cape maintains the high standard of the food. Generous portions are an added plus! Fishmonger has built up a reputation which is apparent in its repeat clientele & long-standing regulars.

“Out of Place”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Cold and impersonal atmosphere.
The waiter was eager but in the wrong way. Selling almost aggressively. The drinks were forgotten for the main course and the manager (she may not have been), a lady wearing all black glided past us without even a glance.

Our cutlery was on another table, and we had to stand up and get it ourselves. My lunch partner order fish grilled with olive oil. She got pan fried in butter. I ordered Salmon Pasta, which was salmon, but tinned. And pink.

The malva pudding was fantastic though.

“Average Value for money”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This restaurant fashions itself as a portugese restaurant, although not a lot of choices to support that. Food is good , but we went with a group of 4 people and had to order more dishes that we generally do, because the portions were smaller. the outside eating area is good and time flies. Overall i would give it a 6-7 out of 10.

“Very good value/choice & service”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We visited the Fishmonger on recommendation of friends & were very impressed. We ate in the evening but due to the setting I would have preferred to eat at a lunch time as there are very good outside areas. The menu was very good as was the substantial specials board. Service was very good, corkage was free and the food very well cooked and well presented. Well worth a visit!!

Great atmosphere, really good meals, good service in a good location. They specialise in seafood and serve a great local fish - Bream - which is like a Talipia.
