“good location, good food, slow service”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

cape town fish market is one of a chain of - presumably franchised - restaurants serving a wide variety of fish and steak type dishes at very economical prices. this restaurant is nicely situated in stellenbosch, with extensive (lit at night) parking across the road and is attractively laid out - a very pleasant ambience. when we were there it wasn t overly busy - and yet the service was very slow - and the friendliness of the staff didn t make up for what was a disappointing hours wait for food. good value for money; decent selection of wines (although you can take your own for a nominal corkage fee). recommended with reservations about service standard.

“Old world charm atmosphere and superb meal”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Delicious fish meal and excellent service. The restaurant is not fancy with high prices, it does not have a view but has an old charm atmosphere. I would certainly recommend this for a casual meal.

“Fast food”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Fast efficient friendly service, so not ideal if you want a leisurely meal. A sushi conveyor bar is at the centre and not one person had sushi. A lot of waste and bored staff.

Calamari starter was fine and so was the king clip, but not the best had in SA .

“Pity about the Decor”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

From the outside, this restaurant looks like an old, whitewashed building with atmosphere, but the actual restaurant lies behind that facade in a modernist structure of no character. Yet, the food (kingclip for all three of us) was excellent, as was the service.

“Busy but good”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

The kingklip and chips are to die for but you need to have lots of patience as service is not the quickest in the world. The wait is really worth it and the crowds bring a buzz to the place.
