Good food, served in a genial, homely atmosphere. The specials board was teeming with mouth watering options and my only complaint was that I could only choose one. The waitress was helpful in choosing combinations, and everything we tried was cooked perfectly and left us wanting more.
Definitely a place to try in Cape Town when you just want simple food, cooked wel.

Top marks for everything. We were a really big group (which is normally a nightmare for the serving staff I am sure), and the service was excellent and the kitchen was very efficient indeed. The food is really delicious. Fish is the speciality but there are enough non-fish options too. The owner makes sure everything is running smoothly and I think that makes all the difference. The restaurant is very full and busy so don't forget to book!

Went to Millers with some friends who lived in Cape Town based upon TA reviews.

To be honest, the first impression I had was of concern that we were in the wrong place. It is super colourful inside and so busy that we had to just check with bar tender that we were in the right place.

The owner actually waited our table and she knew everything on the menu back to front so we just asked her to recommend food for us.

WOW......, Cajun Dorado, squid tentacles, fresh oysters, plus more. This was exactly what we were hoping for and we tried to go back but as is always the case, the good restaurants are always booked out well on advance and we couldn't get back in.

Well worth the visit.

This was a lovely family run restaurant. The atmosphere was really friendly and relaxed. The owner came over to read the specials to us. The fish can be cooked in many different ways to meet your tastebuds. We had a tikka kingklip fish of the specials board which was gorgeous. This was our best restaurant in Cape Town although do note it is not open on Sundays. It is a short taxi ride from the waterfront.

My girlfriend is a massive fan of sefaood and she rated this one of the best meals she had ever had.

Prices were reasonable, food was tremendous, service very good. The restaurant itself is fairly small, relaxed and homely
