“If you love seafood, go here!!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Fresh seafood. Incredible value. So good we went twice during our 5 nights in Cape Town. The concept is simple: pick your fresh fish from the counter, the grill it and give it to you with 4 flavored dipping sauces.
Honestly this place is incredible.

“Amazing Sushi”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

We didn't book so we got to sit by the Sushi bar. Turned out to be ideal. Without exaggeration the best sushi we have tasted. Three guys who were clearly expert producing the sushi dishes as we watched. Brilliant.

Highlight was the lobster tempura. Don't eat for a while before you go here. We're already regretting not eating more of them!!

Oh....the wine list is pretty impressive too.

“It's the place for seafood”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We have visited many seafood restaurants during our travels and this compares favorably. Nice lobster together with the other items selected from the days catch. Unique way to shop for your dinner without the fishy finger smell.
A little pricey compared to some other South African restaurants or just maybe I shouldn't have been too greedy?

“Absolutely fabulous!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Restaurant was advised by Emmy, hotelmanager of The Clarendon. The choice of different sort of fish was terrific! We had among other fish the local lobster. Our choice of fish was prepared with great taste! The view to the beach is wonderfull! The open kitchen means that when you walk out you smell like you've worked in the kitchen! The quality of the food and the atmosphere in the restaurant make up for all that!

“Great atmosphere, helpful staff and good seafood.”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We loved the idea of this place from the reviews we'd read and weren't disappointed. It's bustling and full of energy; the staff are friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. We loved the sushi bar and being able to chose our own cuts to create our own seafood platters, although definitely be careful when you're at the counter...you'll definitely over order :)
