A fascinating evening that I will remember always; I gladly give the Codfather top marks.
The Codfather wins my personal award for ‘Innovative Dinning Experience’ for what is for me a very unique approach to dinner: rather than a menu, you select your seafood from a display case filled with a generously diverse selection of fruit-du-mer, filled with treats enough to satisfy the appetites of even the most picky fisherman. Langoustine, lobster, prawns of all sizes, fresh calamari, thick fillets of white fish, red fish and those in-between – all cooked to succulent perfection. Best langoustines ever – EVER. Everyone else messes those up but the Codfather scores 10 out of 10. Your dinner is accompanied by your choice of chips or rice, and is served with four sauces: peri-peri, lemon butter, garlic butter and one more I can’t remember, but all were great (fiery hot peri-peri!). They also have an excellent al-a-carte sushi menu that you can have as either an appetizer or a main, if you prefer. Wine selection is good and very reasonably priced; the food is worth every rand and you’ll be proud of rewarding yourself for spending on such a lovely treat.
The atmosphere is also very enjoyable: relaxed and casual, without pretentiousness and an excellent view of the coast where you can watch the sunset and see the stars. I should be more descriptive here but I was too busy enjoying my food to remember the environment…that’s a good thing! You can see more the of the restaurant from the Codfather’s website – the pictures are the real deal.
For me, the best part was meeting the owner: what a charming, upstanding and personable fellow – he really made me feel that I was ‘Customer Number One’ and that is something that only the very best of establishments offer. To the owner: thank you so much for a memory that I have shared with all my friends and will keep forever – you’ve set a standard for me!
