Blowfish is a decent seafood restaurant with a lovely view to table mountain.
The food is fresh and well prepared. A little "out of the way" being in the Dolphin beach hotel, but worth the trouble to get to.

Was so looking forward to eating here - especially as I had been told you could select your own fish and wanted to try many small pieces I had not tried before. The disappointment was in the selection available and the cost ougweighed the experience! Lovely restaurant with a fine view of the ocean and Table Mt though.

I have heard mixed things about Blowfish some say it is the best sushi in Cape Town and other say that the standards have dropped rapidly and is simply no longer worth the visit.

Sadly I have to agree with the latter.

Blowfish was well below general sushi standards. The rice was dreadful. And as any mildly enthusiastic sushi eater knows- sushi is all about the rice. bad rice = bad sushi.

On a Wednesday Blowfish runs a half price special from 5pm-8pm. All sushi on the conveyor belt bar is half price. The prices normally range from R30-R50 for a plate. So on a Wednesday from 5pm-8pm you are looking at a price range of R15-R25.

Whilst the sushi was dreadful- maybe the other options on the menu are worth a try.

Blowfish does boast a beautiful view of Table Mountain across the bay. If you do decided to try Blowfish- hopefully not for the sushi- then book a table in the window for optimal viewing potential. Another thing- fantastic service. Absolutely 5 star service- the waitress was attentive, helpful and apologetic for the sushi's shortcomings.
