I tried this on my first evening. I tried hake for the first time here. They have done a great job and the dish was not too expensive. Have recommended a few friends to try this place too.

One of the best places in Cape Town for seafood dishes. The mussel pot is the best. I just loved the service and friendly waiters. The out door space is relaxing and awrsome during summer. Ideal for families and couples.

The fish curry was good and came with rice. The crayfish was also prepared tasty and cost was approximately 96/100 grams. Menu is extensive and offers lots of food to select from. Tempura shrimp was ok. Service was excellent and efficient.

There is a lot of choice on the menu but there is no plain grilled fish. It is embellished with something else, e.g. stacked hake is hake with prawns, fete cheese and olives. The service was a bit slow even though they were not very...More
