“seems to have NOOOO management!!!!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

we used to enjoy eating there and went last week. The food was terrible. I had to wait 1 hour for fish and chips and there were only about 6 people there at lunch time!!! Will not be going back.

“If you want steak, go to a steakhouse, but if you want fish ...”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Cape Town Fish Market excel in their niche and that is providing a high quality and value for money fish dishes. From the catch of the day to the humble hake is expertly prepared and wonderful to eat. The have a lovely atmosphere where you can unwind after a hard day's work or have a romantic interlude with your spouse. Even their Sushi bar with friendly chefs will prepare a culinary delight. I can with grate confidence endorse Cape Town Fish Market (Port Elizabeth) as a venue where you, the customer, won't be disappointed!

“I have handed back my loyalty card!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

On my last visit (ever) I have been put off returning and have handed back my loyalty card.I was totally dissatisfied with both the quality and service and will not be returning.
I think the problem lies with the fact that it is a factory and not a small family run restaurant.
My fault, I normally avoid restaurants where they service several hundred covers a day.

“Good Food, Poor Hygiene”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Visited CTFM yesterday for Mothers Day lunch. The quality of the food was quite good but in a space of 5 minutes we had 2 cockroaches running on the wall adjacent to our table. Since it was Mothers Day and I didnt want to make a scene I left the table and went to the Manager at the entrance to inform him. He was apologetic but didnt offer to reseat us elsewhere - suppose their wasnt any space on a busy day. Just hope they do something about what could be an infestation.
