This fast food outlet is one of a number on the V&A centre ground floor entrance area - left or right you have numerous options. This was left far end and I chose the fish (Hake) and chips. Took about a 7mins wait so at least you know it's freshly cooked. The box meal included a few thin fried onion... More

Located in the food court of Victoria Wharf at the V&A waterfront this place has good fish. Try the mixed box which includes a choice of hake, snoek or angel fish. A further choice of chips or rice. Included in the mixed box is calamari, prawns and onion rings. Unfortunately everything is fried so not healthy but absolutely delicious.

At night the vibe coming across from the rest of the restaurants and shops in the Waterfront makes this an enjoyable and relaxing place to be. Despite much competition, this restaurant holds its...

I seriously recommend everyone to stay clear of this year other outlets in the V&A food court are far better not to mention and fantastic restaurants all along the V&A area. Quite possibly the worst fish and chips I've ever laid eyes on the unknown allowed to go into my mouth the batter was terribly over salted and I suspect... More

Fisher man's choice has been my choice of meal through out my stay in SA. The Slogan is so inviting. The taste is like homemade. I will always eat there whenever I'm in SA.

If you are the victoria wharf and crave for some fish, then Fisherman's choice in the mall is a decent place to get some great fish and chips.

Takes forever for extremely average food, staff have bad attitudes and display it. I do not recommend this place given the better variety available at V&A at comparable prices... Poor choice

We visited this place at the V&A food court. The advertis fresh seafood. However,in a pleasant wrapping we found fatty and cold calamares-schlock and old fries. Avoid this place. Rude staff. There are plenty alternatives in that food court, or - even better - decent restaurants just outside.
