The fish plaice is our family favorite for a fish takeaway. Their hake and calamari are delicious. They cook to order so you may have to wait otherwise phone ahead and place your order.

The food at The Fish Plaice is excellent, simply delicious and great value for money. I have worked outside South Africa for many years and I missed the local seafood delights like fish and chips. I am now back in SA and recently we had the hake and chips from The Fish Plaice and I thoroughly enjoyed one of our... More

Freshly prepared take away to order over the counter or call in. Friendly staff for a take away business, as the staff can be a bit approachable in this industry. A mature lady at the till was very helpful Ordered the Hake/Calamari combo, pleasant and filling. Funny, but, the place reminded me of the corner cafe run by a old... More

The calamari is a rip off and tastes crap. Rude service when queried. First and last time coming to this place. Save your money and go to some place decent. A pie at the engen is better!

Average. Old fashioned menu. Chips undercooked. Mushy peas are made from tinned peas not PROCESSED peas and its dry. I asked for grilled fish. Fish is grilled with the batter on!!!! Fish was dry. Mediocre. Don't bother.

Order the Hake and Calamari Combo for the Musgrave store last night, and was pleasantly surprised not only by the portion size, but the freshness and quality. Friendly staff that were more than accommodating when I changed my order mid cook. What made it unique, was that for a Tuesday night, the store was full and yet they knew everyone's... More

The fish is well prepared and the chips always fresh! The staff is friendly and the menu items are reasonably priced. I eat here regularly.

Whenever I feel the need for fish and chips I always phone the Fish Plaice. The food is freshly prepared and extremely tasty. Their daily specials are excellent value and a real bargain.
