Reviewed 29 August 2014

We went to Pescados on Tuesday evening. We had a wonderful time. The restaurant was busy yet we were served promptly and efficiently. The prawn special was excellent value for our money. our guests ordered Pizza and Lasagna and were extremely pleased with their meal. The entertainment was Top class. All in all we had a great evening. Thank you!
Pat.

“No Complaints”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

My husband and I went here for dinner one night during our stay in Simon's Town. We got Calamari, & Mushrooms for starters. Calamari was okay, but the mushrooms were really good. We both got Pasta. My husband got the seafood pasta, and I got the Alfredo style pasta. We both enjoyed the Pasta. My husband said his was a little salty. I also shared the mushroom soup with my husband but we really didn't like it. The salt in it was overwhelming. That says a lot coming from an American when everything is salty in the US.

We went here at 9pm and there was live music. He was pretty entertaining. Our waiter was really observant.

“Best pizza in the world”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

When I come over from the UK Pescados is the first place I have to go eat. You can't find better pizza anywhere else and the prawns are to die for. Always friendly staff and lovely local vibe inside. Prices are very good for what you get, would definitely recommend everyone to head down to pescados when they are in Cape Town.
