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.

My friends and I visited this restaurant on recommendation. The food was fantastic, all the seafood was freshly prepared and cooked to order. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, offering guidance as part of their service. The lobster and the Argentinian shrimp was fantastic!!

What a great experience - we got in around midday and we beat the crowds no problem. We leisurely enjoyed a bottle of Chenin blanc and platter of hand selected fresh seafood. Sushi section was getting smashed by families but we had a beautiful view of Lions Head near the window. We went on a recommendation from a friend and... More
