Let’s not beat around the bush – the Cape Fish crew know a thing or two about where to find the best seafood spread in town. At a restaurant that is, because you already know where the finest fresh and frozen seafood that can be bought.
On the odd occasion that you can’t throw together a simple, delicious fish taco meal or a more-ish mussels and beer bread, we have decided to help you out. Here is a list of our top Cape Town seafood restaurants and takeaway spots. Enjoy!
Those elegant white table cloths aren’t just for show, the chefs of Harbour House know what they are doing, especially when it comes to their Yellow Fin tuna.
Find them at: Quay Four, Ground Floor, V&A Waterfront, or, Kalk Bay Harbour, Kalk Bay
An izakaya is a Japanese style bar and ramen restaurant. The idea is to order many different little meals and share, or you could just go all in and get a big meal for yourself. Either way, they cater to both. Any of the tuna dishes, sushi included, are great.
Find them at: La Rhone building, 77 Regent Road, Sea Point
Fish and chips
Their name might be foreign, but they nail local fish and chips on the head. Definitely worth a try.
Find them at: Pierhead – V & A Waterfront
This restaurant boasts the freshest fish and chips in town. We specifically love the Kalk Bay branch.
Find them at: 157 Main Road, Kalk Bay, or, 80 Beach Road, Muizenberg
Presenting local and sustainable seafood creatively, Sea Breeze Fish and Shell have a selection of great dishes, but their prawns win hands down.
Find them at: 211 – 213 Bree Street
Cajun rub, coriander and lemon butter… now you are speaking our language. Swing by for a taste of something different.
Find them at: 158 Kloof St, Gardens
Beautiful plating and incredible taste, we entice you to try their delectable salt & pepper squid with spicy mayo & rocket.
Find them at: 110 Kloof St, Gardens
Take away sushi
This is a great alternative to getting out of your pyjamas. Order in and get quick delivery of super good sushi. The process is simple and done through an app and sushi can be paid for by SnapScan.

With its own selection of colourful poke bowls, The Poke Co. has the added option of creating your very own mouth-watering masterpiece. We love the incorporation of fresh fruit with the fish as well – the mark of true fish lovers is knowing your flavours.
Find them at: Loop Street, CBD, or, The Point Mall, Sea Point
The hipster movement may have made fashion a confusing black hole of oversized t-shirts and bad haircuts, but man those kids know how to eat. The Hokey Poke has a great selection that never disappoints.
Find them at: 1 Church street, or, Shop 25, 30 Regent Road, Sea Point, or, V&A food market
