Eating at The Codfather was a very pleasant experience. The fish at this obviously upmarket restaurant was very good indeed. We enjoyed a platter of red snapper, calamari, queen prawns and mussels washed down with 2 excellent bottles of reasonably priced Chenin Blanc.
Getting picked up and returned home was a real plus - ring them and they pick you up if staying at a local hotel.
Would definitely return despite the price being at the upper end for Sandton.

This is one of our local favourite and certainly one of the better seafood places in Gauteng. The service is excellent

Firstly, I'm not a fish lover, so I wasn't really keen to go. But, once you find the place, hidden away in an apartment complex it's actually very very good. The waiter we had was really excellent and the Kingklip and Red Snapper were both fantastic. All is all a fantastic Sunday Lunch. It was so good we've booked to visit again in a few weeks.

We loved the old venue in Morningside for its comfortable ambience and laid-back style. Being situated in Sandton's "Millionaire Mile", the new restaurant is obviously much more upmarket, but it's still got its flair for wonderful seafood and sushi. They have updated the menu to include a lot more meat dishes, salads and vegetarian dishes. And the ice creams and other desserts are out of this world!
It's also great to see so many familiar faces from years gone by, always a good sign when staff has 20 + years' service.

This is a lovely restaurant with great ambience. The menu is varied, but ditch it and head to the seafood counter. There you will find an eclectic mix of fish, both local and beyond. Theses fellas know how to cook and they will prepare all the chosen cuts, exactly how you like it. RSA is known for steak, but if you want a break from the red meat, I would highly recommend this place. It's Fish-tactic!
