  • The only seafood I was ever inclined to eating was fish and as a very choosy person when it comes to the food I eat, all these things like calamari, crab, prawns, oysters and other seafood types were never things I thought I would ever put into my mouth
  • I couldn't really bring myself to go beyond crabs and I stuck to the more conventional foodstuffs that I know, and luckily for me, chicken was in fact on the menu
  • My overall experience at this restaurant was quite an elegant one and I really, really love the setting and ambience of the restaurant
  • I found the waiters to be really friendly and they conducted themselves in a professional manner and I noticed that all of them that I caught sight of were very neat indeed

      The only seafood I was ever inclined to eating was fish and as a very choosy person when it comes to the food I eat, all these things like calamari, crab, prawns, oysters and other seafood types were never things I thought I would ever put into my mouth. I always say, “If it tastes like chicken then give me chicken!”.

      It was not until I visited the local seafood restaurant, Cape Town Fish Market that I tried seafood in its variety, beyond the conventional fish.

      I couldn’t really bring myself to go beyond crabs and I stuck to the more conventional foodstuffs that I know, and luckily for me, chicken was in fact on the menu.

      My overall experience at this restaurant was


      quite an elegant one and I really, really love the setting and ambience of the restaurant. The place was a little dark and there was a considerable amount of blue, which is my favorite color as it gives me a feeling of bliss and puts me in a very relaxed state of mind. This really made me enjoy my stay at the restaurant and the food quality complemented this beautifully.

      Since I am rather conservative when it comes to the type of food I eat, and with my reluctance to venturing further across the seafood barrier than fish, I ordered a great meal consisting out of “Harumuki”, which is a Japanese type dish and basically is spring rolls that are deep fried ...


      • and contain a variety of fillings I could choose from. This is served with a sweet chilli sauce and makes for a divine meal. My filling of choice was chicken and I went as far as exploring some crab and cheese as a filling as well. I must say that I was not scared to try out crab as I have had some before and found it not to be too bad. I loved the complementing taste of the chilli sauce as it really brought out the taste for me and thought that the menu designers did a great job in identifying this possible collaboration.

        I found the waiters to be really friendly and they conducted themselves in a professional manner and

        I noticed that all of them that I caught sight of were very neat indeed.

        Of all the restaurants I have been to, I found the Cape Town Fish Market to be the most professionally run of them all and there was always a sense of great organization in every aspect.

        I did find it to be rather expensive though, but that was nothing less than what I had expected as a restaurant that specializes in seafood is expected to be quite expensive. I did feel that there was great value that I was getting for my money and the very polished service of the waiter that was serving me caused me to give the biggest tip I can remember ever giving in my life.
