“LOVE it!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Fishmonger is now on my list of must visit venues every time I go to Johannesburg.

The food is fresh and flavourful and the portions are generous.

The manager is sharp and always checking up on all the tables. We went for a chilled weeknight dinner and the place was packed. A table next to us was seating a 3rd family by the time we left. Wow!

This place is an operation of excellence. Top notch, whether its for business or pleasure you cant go wrong.

“Outstanding service and food”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

I made a booking weeks in advance, but on arrival our table for 14 was mistakenly turned into a table for 4! Mistakes happen, what is important is how they are rectified. The manager and staff assessed the situation, kept calm and had a stunning table ready for us in 10 min. The restaurant was fully booked, which made the correction so much more miraculous. Our waitress was fantastic, the food was stunning and we had an incredible lunch! Well done Fishmonger for outstanding crisis management!

“Best in Illovo!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

Only had the sushi every time. You will struggle to find better service in Jhb. Perfect for a serious business lunch. Good quality food....a bit expensive but never felt that it is excessive. Always fresh and well presented.

“By far one of the best restaurants in Johannesburg ”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

We have been visiting Fishmonger almost weekly for the past 18 months. Every time we have received consistent service, always meeting the expectations. The food is great. What ever you order you can't go wrong. By far this is one if the best restaurants in Johannesburg.
