By and large everyone we asked suggested we try Codfather, especially as it was less than a 10 minute walk away from our hotel. Fun, quick and delicious. Not cheap, but really enjoyed their signature calamari dish as well as the lobster.

I don't think so. It's a dine-in restaurant. I didn't see many delivery services in ZA, except for Debonairs Pizza.
