We liked the choice and the help given by the staff. We did a sudoku which was on the menu and the owner gave a bottle of wine to the first of the 6 of us to finish! What a nice touch.

Everything at The Fat Fish is soooo tasty. The flavours dance around in your mouth - very very yummy!

A good restaurant for dinner. Nothing brilliant but varied menu means that there is something for everyone. The sushi is very good and comes with plenty of wasabi, ginger and soy to keep you satisfied. The Kingkilp with chilli-butter is worth a try and the the Choo-Chee Prawn Curry did not come with shelled prawns (which is rather odd for a curry), resulting in some 'fishing' to get the shells out of the bowl. The wine menu is good and the staff have some interesting banter.

A pretty standard feast for what you pay. Plett has better restaurants but worth a visit if you are a foodie.

Well informed and very attentive staff who gave excellent recommendations from the menu. We took their advice and were not disappointed, compliments to the chef! A lovely restaurant which we would highly recommend. Well done Simon!

We visited in it's third week and had a fantastic meal. The only shame was that our arrival (relatively late on a Friday) meant that many of the dishes were finished, so we ate extremely well fomr the tapas menu. The service was very good.
