Description: The story of Cape Town Fish Market is the story of creating a restaurant that strives to create a great experience for our customers. It is a restaurant built on fresh ingredients, a relaxing atmosphere, and, most of all, great-tasting seafood and sushi. But we didn't create a world-class restaurant overnight. The Cape Town Fish Market you know and love today is the result of almost two decades of passion and hard work by CTFM's founder, Douw Krugmann and his family, in partnership with the best franchise owners in South Africa. His wife, sons and daughter have all joined the family business and have played an integral role in making CTFM what it is today.It all began in 1997, when Douw bought a small fresh fish restaurant in Cape Town's famous V&A Waterfront. After operating a Spur Steak Ranch for 13 years, it was the next step in his lifelong quest to improve the restaurant experience in South Africa.

Husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening meal. Huge variety of fish dishes to chose from. My husband had a fish platter and I had the salmon both very tasty and very reasonably priced. Sat outside enjoying the last of the evening sun. Good selection of wine and beers. Our waiter was very attentive and would thoroughly recommend a visit.

Five in our party enjoyed a nice meal here, lots of Seafood as the name suggests, also other choices if you are not a fish fan. Really enjoyed the Prawn and mango starter, for me best dish of our trip. Probably slightly more expensive than other places, but if you are spending pounds then really good value.

The meal was value for money. The quality and the taste of the various dishes made it a lovely experience. Great variety to choose from.

The waiter was most helpful and the manager was always present and enquiring, very impressive.
