The sushi, like always, was great & good value for money. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Manager was attentive to our needs, Waited quite some time for our coffee though, and when waitress showed up with it, we were told that because they took so long with it, it was taken off our bill! And this was without us complaining!

Good food, enjoyed the calamari rings. Well presented. Added bonus: kids eat for free on a Saturday night! Resonably priced, Nene was a friendly waiter. Thank you.

“Sushi & Service”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Amazing sushi - proper pieces of fish inside, not the little slivers one finds soemtimes. The GM was most welcomming - giving us a tour of the restaurant inside, switching on the misting sprayers for us when we decided to rather sit outside (was rather warm for April). Despite the name, the menu also have a wide variety of steaks, pizza's, pasta... and of course seafood. We also had great service from our very attentive waiter.

“AWESOME everytime...”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

It has quickly become one of Stellenbosch's places to visit. So there is the wine and Jimmy the fish. This is a place where we have had constant great food, from fresh fish to sushi, that if it were any fresher it would have a heart beat!

We go enjoy a meal there ever time we are in the Cape Town. The things we love about it is the friendly staff, viby atmosphere, more than adequate kids area(AMAZING!) giving you a chance to catch up with friends, have a meeting or simply meet up with university mates.

The seafood platter is off the hook and the sushi never disappoints. So unless you are a food critic if you say there is something wrong with this place look inside yourself, maybe you are projecting. LoL

And if you are having a bad day go try Jimmy the fish in Stellenbosch...

“Seafood Heaven”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

If you like seafood, then you will love this place. Honestly one of the best seafood platters I ever had and well priced. They also have Castle Light Draught beer, which is a plus in my books! Do yourself a favor and visit them for a wonderful meal!
