We were spoilt for choice along the V&A Waterfront but food there wasn't to our liking. It made us crave for succulent seafood and Camps Bay's beautiful sunset came to mind.
We were attracted by the lovely alfresco dining along the beach but were told by a friendly taxi driver to try out Codfather. It was tucked away on a high ground away from the rest of the restaurants. We almost missed it if we had just walked on. Place was quite inconspicuous but the moment we stepped into the restaurant, we were impressed. Fresh seafood was placed in a chiller display for our pick. The variety was enough to make us drool and the succulent giant tiger prawns beckoned us too eat it raw!
Our service staff was very patient and we took our pick of seafood. Our company of 6 had a great time devouring the kingklip which was in season. It tasted far better than what we had earlier at Hermanus beach.
To top it all, the dessert was the highlight even though I do not have a sweet tooth. The brownie with ice cream and one local warm dessert with ice cream blew our minds away. It had a crispy and chewy crust and the inside was warm and smooth.
Best of all when the bill came, we were pleasantly surprised that it was more affordable than we thought.
Only grouse we had was safety. Being tourists, we didn't feel safe there at night especially when we had to call for a cab. Better to ask restaurant to help arrange for transport if possible.
Overall a satisfying experience.
