If its fish you looking for in JHB, then this has to be one of the top destinations. Fresh fish and prawns are always a win, and pair with a great selection of wines, make this a superb venue for a family, or business dinner.

Celebrating their seventh anniversary, Fishmonger had a fantastic deal on 7 King Prawns for ZAR 177. They were absolutely meaty and delicious. The grilled Kingklip was to die for, but couldn't say the same about the mussels which were served in this milky, creamy sauce...More

On a dark cold night in the middle of a blackout, the lit up Thrupps Centre was a warm welcoming sight. The Fishmonger has a generator, and the patrons could sit back and enjoy good wine, a wonderful meal and good conversation (no loud irritating...More

We ate here on the spur of the moment. Two couples, some drinks and an outstanding seafood platter (SQ). The calamari was so tender it melted. The service was excellent, very personal and attentive. We loved it. About ZAR 4000 for 4 people including starters/mains,...More

We had heard a lot about this restaurant so were eager to try it. All the shell fish is expensive but you will find something reasonable. Be careful to ask what the SQ prices are as my rock cod piece was R350! A bit much...More

It is in a small shopping complex, but has seating inside and outside. They've put in a lot of effort to create a lovely family atmosphere, but it isn't in a "green space" as we'd say in the UK. I hope that helps.
