CTFM is well down in CT, with a new menu there surely is something for everyone! Ask about their specials and try new sushi dishes!

A good selection on the menu, reasonably priced. Sitting area inside or out. Staff very friendly. The seagulls can be a bit noisy - they do have very large umbrellas up in the outside area!

As good a place as any on the Waterfront to eat the ubiquitous hake, prawns or kingklip, but the restaurant is located on the far side of the harbour footbridge and as a consequence has a rather isolated feel. Outside tables are a better bet than the cavernous interior, but beware the notorious Cape Town wind in the evenings! Service... More

On a Monday evening my wife and I visited the Cape Town Fish Market in the Waterfront to enjoy their Specials. We had booked but no specific table was reserved for us. (It was very busy but there were still a few empty tables available.) After waiting patiently for a waitron to serve us for at least 10 minutes, one... More

First visit to the Waterfront precinct and it was on a beautiful Sunday night. The gulls were screeching but added to the atmosphere. No reservation but we were seated and attended to almost instantly. We didn't fancy a huge meal but ended up sharing a fish and chips plus salt and pepper squid with salad. It was plenty for us...

This place has exceptional oysters for about R25 per oyster. They are some of the largest and tastiest! Clever, our waiter, was extremely kind and attentive. The rest of the menu was average but they have a great drink menu. Fun outdoor patio. We liked it so much we came back a second time on our last day in Cape... More

We were at a loss finding a good fish restaurant as Cape Town was inundated with thousands of avid cyclists ready for the ill fated Cape Cycle tour race. I had slipped up and forgotten to book a table. Several phone calls to the popular restaurants at the V&A Waterfront resulted in disappointment. When I managed to find a table... More

I was left an unpleasant calling card by a seagull just outside the restaurant. As I was only five minutes from my hotel, I returned to have a quick shower and wash my shirt! On our return, we were careful to eat underneath an umbrella. On looking at them it is obvious they serve as protection from seagull droppings as... More

A large restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating with and without shade so you can avoid the wind and sun or expose yourself to the elements. Nice view of the swing bridge so you can watch the world go by if you sit outside. Friendly, efficient service and a good range of seafood options. I just wanted a snack... More
