Orange hues and startling green draw you into our bustling, yet cozy character-filled converted home and an air redolent with aromas of freshly prepared seafood-inspired fare.
It has a classic pub feel and the food was surprisingly delicious
My last visit in 2012 was also the last review for this restaurant and really nothing has changed. Queen Jane is still front of house and explains the menu and specials albeit it a rather rapid rate. The choice of various fresh fish prepared in various ways can be a bit daunting and it would have helped a little if she had tarried a while to help us with our choices although our obliging waitress did her best to advise. The food arrived surprisingly quickly for our table of 10 and the restaurant was, as usual, full. The prices on the Eat Out website are somewhat out of date with the main courses at least R140-R160.
My starter of mussels was small but adequate and my main course of seafood curry lacked as much sauce as I would have liked. A better choice would have been the Tuna with wasabi chosen by my partner which was not in any way overpowered by a wasabi flavor which was what put me off ordering it in the first place.
Jane's introduction does include the information about how many portions of each particular fish are available which confirms not only the likelihood of your particular choice being available but also that all the seafood is fresh.
Decor has not changed a jot and noise level not too bad at all. A good spot for a seafood meal with a few variations on old favorites.
Very pleasant evening with lovely seafood curry and excellent service. Although I have always lived in Cape Town, I have never heard of this little restaurant, which was packed! Service deserves special mention as it was very good and food also excellent.
By far the best restaurant we’ve been to in Cape Town. We had generous portions of tasty fish and there was a lovely ambience. I cant wait to go back!
Eight of us went there on Friday. Great food and great service. No background music a definite plus. To be recommended. Plus, free parking.
