As the name suggests, this restaurant mainly serves fish. The variety is good and the method of service is simple if a little unusual. When you arrive, you are given a wine list but no menu. You choose your fish from a display and your preferred side dishes. The fish is cooked and brought to your table along with the side dishes (chips, veg or rice) and a selection of sauces. Fortunately we went mid-afternoon and were the only customers so had very little wait for the food. If you visit at busier times I can imagine it would be a little longer before your food was served but at least you know it is fresh and just cooked.
Great for fish lovers and for those wanting a dining experience a little different from the norm.

Loved being led to the counter and having all the fresh fish selections expertly explained and also being able to select more than one variety and having the portion cut to your size. Waiter was very knowlegeable about both the fish and S. African wines. He selected a very nice Chardonnay for us. Food was cooked simply but excellently. Dress code was casual which meant we could go directly there after being out most of the day. Owner took trouble to come and chat at the table. Cost wise, this was a bargain for Americans. We had 4 nights in C.T. and this was the best we experienced.

Was our big treat out in Camps Bay, and even though I wasnt a big seafood man, we had an amazing meal. The owner was lovely, and gave us champagne recpetions, as the hotel had rung ahead and told them we were on honeymoon. Tried about 10 different fish between us. Was pricey, especially compared to other meals we had in SA, but well worth it.

So, we came here prepared to be wowed....and left a bit disappointed. By far the most expensive meal during our trip to Capetown and probably not even top 5 in terms of quality. Fish/seafood was fresh and well cooked but meal otherwise very average.

I especially loved the concept that you can order what you see and select from the seafood bar. Waiter explains first your choices and you can see exactly the size of seafood and fish that you want to order. i dont like surprises with my food selection so i loved this concept. I especially recommend the place if you raelly love seafood!
