There were very many more staff who were extremely attentive to our every request and the food was truly of excellent quality. My congratulations to the management in... More

Had our first meal in cape town here in the sea point area. Staff was friendly and the food was in large portions and very good and fresh tasting. Great place to get your first meal, nothing too exotic but get a taste of the fresh seafood. I had the advantage of a strong dollar but the prices seemed good.

During our holiday in Cape Town we had our dinner twice in this restaurant at Sea Point. The first evening we had a delicious fish meal and next time we chose sushi. Both were very delicious. The service was good.

I had grilled fish and sautéed Veggies. Very good and light. My daughter had sushi and it was just average. They told us up front it would be a longer wait for three sushi. They were right. Our waiter could've cared less we were there.

We usually enjoy our meals . The platter of fried fish calamari and prawns were usually good value but at our last visit we were charged extra for Hake (not an expensive fish) We get better value at the V and A Waterfront

Need I say more than my title? Not quite the Ritz but who cares when your Kinglip and Calamari combo is yummy nutritious and plentiful. My wife's choice of grilled Sole was succulent firm tender super fish at a startingly reasonable price. Both served with a choice of chips, spinach and butter nut et al. We shared a Greek Salad...
