Description: An absolutely superb small, but very up-market seafood restaurant in Umhlanga Rocks, northern suburb of Durban. Fish and seafood fresh daily. One of the best seafood and fish restaurants I have ever been to. Took friends and colleagues there three times in November and December 2011.

It is not often that food puts a smile on my face. Of recent we have been trying out new and established restaurants, but have been served mediocre food and as a result my pen has had a break for I have had nothing decent to write about. Fish has changed that and I am smiling once again.Effecient service, waitress was there when needed, starters and mains arrived on time.....but you know what......all would have been forgiven,had i been kept waiting for longer than usual, because the food was all about superfresh seafood... prepared simply, by a talented chef. End result delicious. Booking essential as this is a small cosy establishment.

There are better seafood restaurants in Umhlanga, try Jack Salmon, Fish & Wine Co. or The Catch. I took my parents out for supper here. The waitress was appallingly rude, throwing our meals down on the table and handing me a plate so hot I burnt my hands on it, the manager could not have been less bothered, simply wanting to play on his phone/iPod changing the next song.

We ordered fish cakes, prawn and calamari combo's and fish. The food was average, fish over cooked, fish cakes bland and everything was smothered in a generic sauce. The "homemade rolls" were bought ones microwaved to hide the staleness and turned rock solid when they cooled.

What was supposed to be a special night out was ruined by the staff. I will not be returning to this restaurant.

My husband and I visited Fish every time we were in Umhlanga, so travelling back to Umhlanga this year, for the first time on my own since my husband died, I decided to make a booking.
Can you imagine how I felt when I was told that they don't really do tables for one. At that point I had not booked anything else so asked if another day was better for him. No every day was busy. He offered me a one hour slot on the Monday which I took.
How short sighted to not realise that all the people who were dining with him at that moment will at some point be on their own.
The more I thought about how my confidence took a tumble and the importance he placed on his bottom line, the more I decided to make his bottom line the important thing. I just didn't turn up....
Would this scenario have happened if I had been a businessman?
And an hour is plenty good enough for a solo diner, so no need to give a time limit.
I am happy to report that I didn't encounter any other discrimination at other restaurants in Umhlanga and was welcomed unconditionally.

If you like fish and seafood this restaurant is a must. They serve Calamari you would die for! Nothing fancy, nothing facelifted in this restaurant. Just real, honest, great fish.
