“Seafood and sushi”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Cape Town Fish Market is a more expensive option to enjoy seafood, sushi and a few other options for non-seafood lovers.

“Not up to CTFM normal standards”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

We went there on New Years Eve for a family dinner. The service was shocking to say the least. It was almost non existant! The restuarant was busy but not to capacity.
The food was not as good as we have had at other CTFM's and the protions were much smaller. I find the food on the pricey side at CTFM and the portions were smaller than usual, so it leaves a bad tatse in ones mouth.
I would not rush back to this restaurant. In fact I would definately find another restaurant to eat at next time I am in Stellenbosch.

“Good food. REALLY needs a top-to-bottom cleaning!”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

We like CTFM for middle-of-the-road fish dinners. Their fish is usually well cooked and tasty and the prices are reasonable. Sushi is also very good - esp their promotions. We stopped by the Stellenbosch CTFM and all had great dinners: norwegian salmon, grilled kingklip, and a sirloin - all cooked as ordered. Fresh, tasty salads and veggies. But, the place really needs a thorough cleaning - almost with a fire hose - and some basic spiffing up. Nothing outrageous, but it just feels very very tired and unkempt. Lots of paper scraps and threads on floor, a few dust bunnies under a stationary counter, toilet seats in the bathroom are bubbled and look cruddy. The place needs a franchise inspector to come in and crack the whip a bit. Their kitchen seems to be operating OK, but the front-of-house sure needs some attention.

“Avoid”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

A good example of why not to frequent chain restaurants. Poor food, barely adequate service. Avoid!
