We went to Fishmonger on our third night in Johannesburg and it was pretty disappointing. To start with the welcome.
Despite having booked a table, we were asked to wait aside for a few minutes. Once sitted, we start ordering and get to know that there were no oysters (while this is what I really wanted to have as a starter). I took the squid heads instead but it was nothing fancy and not so tasty. For the main dish, I took a seafood platter which was ok but again it felt very fat and nothing extraordinary. When I ordered the dessert, I got to learn again that my dessert wasn't available (is this a joke?), so had to take something else instead (a cheescake which was good anyhow even though not my first choice). Fortunately, our waiter was really nice and fun but that was all about Fishmonger. Not sure I fully understand all the positive reviews.
