Our waitress was very helpful recommending what went with what fish. My husband had tuna cooked rare with wasabi sauce and it melted in the mouth- best tuna ever. I had carpenter fish with Malay sauce which was also lovely. Well worth a visit.

Went for my last night in Cape Town and it was well worth it! Possibly the best fish I’ve ever had. Try the kingklip Cajun style! Book ahead if you want a table.

Our little group decided to visit having read all previous reviews. Our hopes were medium to high but we were sorely disappointed. The menu was difficult to understand. There were no prices. The food we did order came surprisingly quickly however one 'medium' tuna was...More

Quite close. From MQ to main road, turn left, about 200 meters turn right and it takes 10 to 15 minutes easy walk. The guys at MQ will give you a map if you ask them. It’s worth going, it really is
