This relatively new restaurant is already a big hit with the locals and you need to book. Imaginative sea food dishes and super tapas as alternative choice. The atmosphere created by the staff is excellent with a great mix of knowledgable and friendly staff especially Emma from Scotland and "Spikey" from Manchester. We ate their on a number of occasions and were always delighted with the consistancy of the dishes and our hosts. I am sure claiming to be the food critic for The Cape Argus had nothing to do with the great service. We wish all at Fat Fish the very best wishes for any future plans and look forward to our next visit.

We found this place on a local recommendation and weren't disappointed. Very attentive service and the food was lovely. Fish was cooked perfectly and the tapas, whilst not necessarily to everyone's taste, were something new to try. I hope this place goes from strength to strength.

Amazing food again last night at the Fat Fish, I don't usually post a good review twice but the food was so amazingly good. The hard part is 'what to eat' as the menu is so good. I have never had such tender calamari followed by their line fish which was Cob in a lobster sauce. Looking forward to my next visit. Very attentive and friendly staff, your doing a great job guys.
