We were recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. There is no formal menu as the fish is all on display and you choose what you want. There is only fish. There is a great range of fish available and your waiter takes you to the counter and tells you about all the fish. You choose what you want... More

Its a trap! Food cooking is basic, the sauces on the side are not great. They charge you high price. You leave the place smelling food.

We had a very enjoyable evening, although we don't generally like to go to restaurants that have sittings. However, saying that we arrived 30 minutes early and we able to take our table immediately. The place was buzzing, so don't go here if you want a romantic meal or don't like fish/seafood. It was great fun being able to choose... More

The Codfather is worth visiting, but you must book. Great Sushi. The only drawback is that if you are on a tight budget, you don't know what the meal is going to cost. You select the fish you want from the counter and it is sold by weight. Also very busy and noisy.

Sensational, we've rarely had seefood this good and in such a great quality. They don't have a menu, you pick the fish of the day you 'd like to eat out of the iced display. Service is excellent. We'll definately be back👍🏼!

Amazing place at Camp's bay to consider if you're in Cape Town. You can either sit at the sushi counter or pick your fish and seafood from the fresh fridge. Food is very fresh and tasty, ambiance is great specially at night and service is outstanding Menu is quite basic... you pick your fish, you chose the cooking method, pick... More

I've never liked the restraints with no menu where you pick your meal from looking at the fridge full of meat (yes, I've somehow have been to many), but once food arrived it was incredibly delicious. Sushi bar is neat but the sushi itself is lacking, take this knowing I'm a sushi snob though. Staff are helpful and lovely. Don't... More
