The kingklip that we ate here was very nice. Service was good. My wife ate the calamari and I tasted a bit and it was nice and tender.

Thank pedro a

We booked at this restaurant for a company function and were expecting amazing food because of the reviews on TA. The service was excellent and the owner was very friendly.

However the food was not very good. The steak was over cooked with no flavor.
Dessert wasn't memorable.
We were disappointed.

This place is a true Trip Adviser Winner. We went without a reservation, and sat at the bar. quicker than expected we had a table and were ordering dinner.

The portions of fish were surprisingly generous. Compared to most American seafood houses they were probably the equivalent of double portions.

They have their different fishes and then you choose how you want it prepared. I had something that I would describe as Asian Fusion with Wasabi. It was quite good. Pick your sides and you have a meal.

We also had the calamari appetizer which were very tender.

I would recommend this place for any seafood lover who is in cape town.

Our B&B referred us here as we wanted some good seafood. Well this was the place. The owner works hard to please. Lot of fresh fish offered and your choice of several preparations. It's not fancy and service is maybe a bit slow but the place is packed and the food was worth a little wait.

Our daughter and son-in-law recommended this friendly neighbourhood restaurant so we just had to try it. We arrived early and just as well as by 8.00pm it was jumping. It's small, unpretentious, concentrates on fish and has a small wine list and a lively little bar. Overall we would have rated this place much more highly for good value for money, wholesome food and the whole friendly experience. However, my wife's fish (Yellow Fin) was raw in the middle and had to go back. A shame, it shouldn't happen and it robbed you of a 5 star rating.
