With a charming atmosphere and an ocean view to fall in love over, this beautifully situated restaurants best feature is its food! Forget typical seafood platters with the standard lemon butter smothered combinations, hek, forget menu's all together! This fishmonger-style... More

My friends and I visited this restaurant on recommendation. The food was fantastic, all the seafood was freshly prepared and cooked to order. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, offering guidance as part of their service. The lobster and the Argentinian shrimp was fantastic!!

What a great experience - we got in around midday and we beat the crowds no problem. We leisurely enjoyed a bottle of Chenin blanc and platter of hand selected fresh seafood. Sushi section was getting smashed by families but we had a beautiful view of Lions Head near the window. We went on a recommendation from a friend and... More

This Camps Bay standard is always packed, so reservations are essential. We went on a Thursday night and were seated promptly. Our waiter was excellent. We picked a variety of seafood, all of which was fresh and excellent. No complaints about anything but the price, which was significantly higher than any other meal we had in Cape Town.

You have several seafood choices but this place is a must go. Yes it is expensive, yes it is simple (no fancy tables and aristocratic environment) nevertheless consider an experience to invest A couple and 6y old child we expend R1300 having salmon sushi, langostines octopus prawn and wine

The fish is all laid out for you to choose from and it is fresh ( the amount shrinks during the evening as punters choose it). Staff are very knowledgeable but a bit pressurising to choose perhaps more than you want. It's noisy, not a quiet evening but it's a good atmosphere and service is quick. It's fun but maybe... More
