“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

If you like seafood then this is a great place to go. The food isn't cheap but it's well-made and uber-fresh. The service is also top notch, the staff are very attentive. The decor isn't amazing but it's clean and warm-looking.

“Seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Not too bad, I prefer Ocean Basket. Fishmonger is more pricey and staff not as hands on as Ocean Basket

“Tasty food, high price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We decided to try the Fishmonger restaurant in Nicolway shopping center. Our experience was mixed, the service was good and friendly and the food was nice and tasty, however not very exceptional. Same time I found the price too high, especially if I compare to other fish restaurants, so at the moment we are not planning to come back.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

I loved the food; really delicious. I didn't like when they take a bit long to bring the food. But I think is a thing that most restaurant do.

“Fishmonger, Thrupps Cente, Ilovo, Johannesburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Excellent service. Food is ok. Waiting time since its only fish was too long. Place was packed. There aren't too many places with good fish in Johannesburg so definitely would go back.
