“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

This is a buzzing place where you choose your own fish and shellfish and they cook it for you. Loved the atmosphere, very busy, though it ended up very expensive for South Africa, as it's hard to work out when you are choosing exactly the price of all the cuts of fish you are choosing. In particular the king prawns were very expensive, and to be honest they were a bit over cooked , whereas the monkfish and calamari were fantastic.
Not ideal for children, but a good adult place.

“Truly amazing.”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

I visited this restaurant during my 30th birthday holiday to camps bay. I had a truly amazing experience with some of the best seafood I have ever eaten. You get taken to a counter where there are many types of fish and shellfish. You pick as much as you like to make a platter and they cook it all up for you. The quality of the seafood was great and the staff were great. Please visit this restaurant for a great and unique experience.

“Great Seafood”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We were referred by another guest at the hotel and dined twice there during our 4-night stay in Cape Town. All the seafood were so fresh and lots of varieties, and you can choose the portions you want from the display area. The service was great.

“Wonderful place, unless you are a crustacean”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

The formula is simple - really fresh seafood that you select, get weighed, and is then cooked for you. We had great lobster and langoustine, and returned two days later to fill up again! It's expensive by South African standards, but well worth the visit.
