I've had the klipfish here for the first time in my life. Simply delicious. Also the olive oil and bread are perfect. I would come back again and again.

Was my go-to calamari spot. Loved the hot fresh rolls before dinner. Great service. Fast and efficient. Prices have risen recently so now in 2 minds....creeping out of mid range and not sure it's worth that unfortunately.

Stopped off for lunch with a colleague. Firstly I must comment on the service - it was attentive, polite and prompt. The Mozambique fish 'old Englishman' as recommended and tasted fresh, meaty and well-cooked. Will be back.

My mouth waters when I thank about this dish! My second best meal was the Grilled langoustines, queen prawns, Kingklip and squid caps platter. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I could... More

We were in a mood for some great seafood and the Fishmonger was the perfect place to go. The design of the restaurant interior made for enjoyable atmosphere where you can see the chefs cooking behind the glass. It would have been a great spot to eat outdoors but unfortunately it was raining. We shared a Seafood Platter for two... More

This review is for Fishmonger at the Firs, Rosebank. The restaurant has a nice ambience. Obviously the fish is what to have. Probably the best grilled snapper I have had anywhere. Really great! Sardines as a starter were also grilled to perfection. Staff very helpful, can get busy at times.

Excellent place to enjoy sea-foods if you are really hungry. Portion are too big so make sure you are hungry enough not to waste food. Susi are not great -as rice is not Japanese sticky one.
