I read about the Codfather on trip advisor so booked our table well in advance. So glad we did. Our waiter was great - super friendly and so knowledgeable.

Sashimi was delicious, as was the crayfish. I was disappointed that the oysters were not shucked - they’re not the same when the oyster doesn’t just slide out of its shell and into your mouth.

This place is buzzing. You’re shown to your table and then explained how this place works. You have sushi -freshly made - to one side and a display of freshly caught fish, lobster, crayfish, salmon, tuna and more. You pick your fish and they cook it for you. It’s not expensive at £35 per head bearing in mind a whole lobster, 8 plates of sushi, wine, Several king sized prawns.

You have to go.

A firm tripadvisor favourite and well-recommended by many, this place exceeded all expectations! Great service especially from Lucy and Victor who quickly explained to us what to order etc. Sushi was amazing and was ALLLL of the fish! Stunning views as well!

This is meant to be one of the best places to eat around Cape Town, but we found the experience very disappointing. We hadn't booked in advance so we were pleased to be found a table, but it went downhill from there. The waiter did try to explain the process for ordering the fish (basically self-selection from a display unit, but there is no pricing per kilo for any of the fish, so you have to choose, sit down, then wait for the waiter to come over with pricing labels for each item you ordered. By this time you don't really want to reject anything you have chosen, but the prices are incredibly expensive by south African standards, and the same goes for the wine. The food when it arrived was fine, but then again we didn't really have any poor meals for the 3 weeks we were in country. They really should price the fish on display as a minimum, or price your choices as you make each selection, Pretentious and over-priced.
