My husband and I still talk about this place all the time and we've been home from our honeymoon for 3 weeks. The food is outstanding! Best fish we've ever had! We went back 3 times during our week in Cape Town because we loved it so much.

Excellent restaurant for seafood. Pick out what you want from the fish counter and have it cooked your way!

This rating is probably a bit harsh in the grand scheme of things, but relative to the other restaurants in Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek I was fairly underwhelmed. The server we had was average at best, he disappeared and reappeared sporadically. He was also meant to show us the fish bar but we ended up just going up and... More

Excellent meal with large variety of fresh fish available. Located behind main road. Care with ordering larger items such as crayfish as all fish is priced by weight. Overall thoroughly enjoyed the venue and well worth a visit

Another great meal at the codfather. We had an excellent calamari to start with followed by a selection of langoustines, king prawns and kingklip. Absolutely delicious. Only downside was the food was served far too quickly. Main course arrived at the same time as they were clearing the plates away for the starter. Otherwise great experience.

No menu: You choose the fish at a glass counter where the available seafood is displayed. You pay by weight. Excellent quality.

It's a shame when the hype doesn't match the experience. Went here for a fish restaurant with a great view of the Camp Bay sunset. Was ushered to an 'outside' table which is not part of the main restaurant but near the toilets and has no atmosphere whatsoever. Service was poor compounded by having a bowl of chilli dip spilt...

Excellent fresh fish with great service. The sides to go with the fish were deliscious and it was very reasonably priced. Highly recommend it.

We went for an evening meal and the place was packed out. Definitely would need to book. There is no menu which at first seemed a bit disconcerting but they take you to the counter where all the fish is laid out. The waiter tells you what everything is and you just decide what you want. Everything is priced by... More

We were recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. There is no formal menu as the fish is all on display and you choose what you want. There is only fish. There is a great range of fish available and your waiter takes you to the counter and tells you about all the fish. You choose what you want... More
