“Snack Lunch”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Nothing special I am afraid, we had the cray fish and salad, bit poor really. The crayfish was Ok and the salad was not that fresh. Probably give it a miss and will not go back, better places to eat at teh same price.

“Fish and chips the South African way”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Ok we have been on holiday in South Africa for two weeks eaten and drunk our selves silly at some of the best restaurants, but after a while we just wanted something basic and comforting, whilst sitting by the V&A water front in Cape Town watching the beautiful people queue up and cram into the more swanky establishments.
Don't get me wrong this restaurant is really attractive and right on the waterfront but you go to the counter like a good old fish and chip shop and order, pay and your food is bought to your table.
You can have a whole range of exotic fish including king clip, yellow tale, calamari etc etc but if I was you just order the fried Hake in batter with chips, it comes with salad and onion rings and is to die for...... Cost £7.00
Oh and a really nice bar.

“Cape Town's freshest Fish & Chips”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

As a regular visitor to the Waterfront I have always made an effort to eat at Fisherman's Choice. Great vibe, splendid variety, friendly staff and value for money.
I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Waterfront.

“Hake nuggets best in town”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I have been here a number of times and really enjoyed my meals. I must make mention of the hake nuggets, they were absolutely delicious. Lovely spot right next to the water with a beautiful view of Table Mountain.
