We'd been to the Greek Fisherman on previous visits to Cape Town and were horrified this time round when we couldn't find it. We though it had closed but fortunately all it had done was move upstairs in virtually the same location. There is no...More

Slightly touristy place and fairly loud indoors, but good food. What we really liked is that they gave us a take away box for the food we didn’t finish - thank you for that!!

Were there for dinner (reservation) and were seated in a not so pleasant environment, away from the windows. Service was good but the food could not compete with original Greek dishes. Maybe due to the taste of the vegetables and fish, caught in the Mediterranean,...More

Ate an excellent dinner here. The food selection was great. The calamari appetizer was possibly the best I have had outside of Greece. The seafood platter and the lamb shavings platter were both excellent. You can’t go wrong here!!!!

Description
Here at the greek fisherman, we are proud of our roots, so expect traditional greek and mediterranean dishes. But, we also believe in moving with the times, so we've added a modern twist to our otherwise classic menu. Our cuisine includes greek & seafood specialities and we are famous for our greek meze, our souvla (spit roast) and our stunning lamb in the oven. Choose from over 20 meze, starters and tapas! Established in 1992, the greek fisherman is one of the original restaurants in the v&a waterfront and is still owned by the same owners as when the victoria wharf, waterfront opened in 1992. Take a seat and get a glorious view of table mountain while you enjoy delicious seafood and meats grilled over open charcoals.
