Description: Take a seat and get a glorious view of Table Mountain while you enjoy seafood and meats grilled over open charcoals. Here at the Greek Fisherman, we are proud of our roots, so expect traditional Greek and Mediterranean dishes. But, we also believe in moving with the times, so we've added a modern twist to our otherwise classic cuisine. With our recently-renovated restaurant, you'll see what we mean by "modern with a twist". So, bring your friends, bring the whole family! And share freshly-made Mediterranean breads, accompanied by generous helpings of laughter and a magnificent sunset... come share the Greek Fisherman experience!

“Great for people watching!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

The one night we didnt have a reservation for dinner we decided to try this place. Other than it being a little chilly out on the waterfront all was good and they did give us blankets and a heater! The fish is all beautifully cooked and presented and the choice is fantastic. Its very lively and lots going on around to watch while you chill over your wines! Waiters were not brilliant but it was Christmas and very busy, but when prompted they apologised and did what was requested! Would eat here again as well priced and we enjoyed the food!

“Recommended to any food lover!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

We ate here on a recent visit to cape town over the new year. The service was great! The food was great and the atmosphere was even better. Eating while watching the sun set was perfection.

There were a few things that took away from it. There was an unpleasant smell, not sure what it was but I'm hopeful its not there all the time. Also my boyfriend ordered a fillet steak and the menu didn't say how big it was needless to say it wasn't big enough BUT they gave him another one AND we didn't pay for it! Ha! My boyfriend was ecstatic. Will be eating there again.

“Very bad service spoils average food”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

Visited this place for the first time during a recent visit to Cape Town. Food was not bad, although there are many places that have education better quality for the same price. Service was non existent however. Waiter had to be called no less than 10 times to come and attend to our table. Not even getting the bill came with ease. We waited almost half an hour for that. Main meals were not taken, we had to ask the waiter to come and get it from us. I understand the place is busy, but then turn less tables over so that you do on get such a bad rating.

“Good food in a busy waterfront ”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

A simple restaurant with good food directly at the waterfront. Good for a lunch. The hectic of the waterfront is disturbing a bit in my opinion.
