Went here for a late lunch after returning from Robben Island. Selection of seafood is very good and would cater for nearly all tastes. Went for the fish cakes and surf/turf and wasn't disappointed. Service was with a friendly smile to go with the lovely view of the waterfront. Would return.

Ordered the mixed fish platter for two. The hake was a bit off and smelled very very strong. Could not eat it.

Below average service and well below average food, I would not go there again, they can get away with it because it does present like a nice looking venue. Yuk.

I ate here recently two days in a row for lunch and enjoyed it each time. Both times I had 8 fresh oysters and they were very good. First time I had 8 BBQ Prawns and the second time the combination prawns and calamari. Both times I was impressed with the presentation, taste and freshness.

Great location and atmosphere. A bit touristy- but then again we were tourists! I had a fish curry, served in an iron pot which was quite delicious. So I was more than happy.

I can really recommend the seafood dishes and sushi here. They have an indoor section with air conditioning and a large outdoor terrace with a fantastic view over the Waterfront and Table Mountain. We had a great lunch here and will definitely come back!

Thank Susanna I
