Here you will receive great seafood, fresh fish and excellent sushi (my sister even went back for some take away sushi for lunch the day after we visited the restaurant). The service could be improved and the restaurant was rather noisy. However, it was still a great experience with really good food. Recommended!

100% you have to book. Two sittings and when there you can understand why. We went for the early sitting and weren't disappointed. It's not a cheap meal but an experience. No menu. You either are offered a choice of 2 starters or a visit to the sushi bar. When you are ready for your main meal your waiter takes... More

Made a booking with a group of 10 friends and allowed ourselves to be talked in to having a selection of both starters and Mains. The prawns/shrimp were in their shells and quite flavourless, the calamari was somewhat better. The crayfish was over cooked and disappointing and the fish served was dry and over cooked. Remain to be convinced on... More

Always have at least one meal here when we are in Camps Bay. Great food. We did have a small issue but the following day the owner rang me to apologise for what had happened. Hope to see you next year.

We had a great dinner. No menu, you are simply shown to the fresh fish counter where each fish/ shellfish is explained. You order and pay by the weight. Before you finalise the order you have a chance to review the total price and adjust if required Fresh, delicious, informal

This restaurant was recommended by the B&B we stayed with and they were dead on with how great it is. You pick your own fish, and even tell them how big you want the cut...that determines the price...fantastic!!! You get a synopsis of all the fish, prawns, and dishes so you can make a decision based off what you like.... More

First the positive: food concept is indeed very original and the seafood is very good. The waiters are friendly and trying their best to be as efficient as possible.( it is a mad house in high season) Now the negative: We had chosen the second seating as it was our last day in South Africa and we wanted to have...

Excellent place and a must for seafood lovers. A great concept where you select exactly what seafood you would like and the portion size. This is then cooked fresh for you. Seafood is delicious. Highly recommended.

What a delicious surprise!! Hidden just off the main road in Camps Bay sits this pearl of a seafood restaurant. 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
