About this restaurant
The Cape Town Fish Market first opened its doors in 1997 when Douw Krugmann purchased a fresh fish retail store at Cape Town's V&A Waterfront. In the true spirit of entrepreneurship he devised a restaurant concept comprising a unique recipe of mixed elements which has proven to be a huge success in South Africa. Now open in the heart of Central London, The Cape Town Fish Market is a vibrant fish & seafood restaurant bringing a fresh taste of South Africa to its customers. Cape Town Fish Market's menu offers a wonderful combination of both South African and Japanese dishes. There's the old favourite fish and chips, the chic fresh oysters, the unusual Prawn & Avocado salad, the delectable Salmon Teriyaki and the classic seafood curry. The seafood platters come highly recommended and you can even pick your own ingredients from the fresh seafood displayed on ice. For those who aren't that partial to seafood, there is also a choice of meat & poultry as well as a number of vegetarian dishes. Children are also catered for. The Sushi Bar with its conveyor-belt of tasty treats will leave you hooked. The conveyor-belt was the first in its kind in South Africa and is a firm favourite amongst Sushi lovers. Seat yourself down while California rolls, sashimi, fashion sandwiches and other tempting portions pass slowly by – all colour coded plates to make it easy for customers to stick to their budget – however small or large that may be! The vast menu also includes Teppanyaki and Tempura dishes. Teppanyaki diners sit at communal “hibachi” tables that surround a large table top iron grill. This dining style allows them to view the chef as he prepares the meal with amazing skill using the traditional tools of the trade- a knife, a fork and two metal spatulas. Patrons can watch master chefs prepare these popular Eastern delights such as Teppanyaki-style Prawns and chicken, beef on noodles, fried rice, to name but a few. Tempura is also an old-time favourite that displays the Japanese art of making crisp, deep fried seafood and vegetable morsels, which boasts a lacy texture and subtle taste. For those who wish to indulge in wines from the famous Cape vineyards, you can enjoy one of the many wines which CTFM has on offer. Wine connoisseurs are able to savour a carefully ed range of the finest South African wines available. The Cape Town Fish Market is a stylish new restaurant with a fun and vibrant atmosphere. Whether it be a quick seafood lunch, a romantic lobster dinner for two or maybe a fresh tuna steak to impress those at home, the Cape Town Fish Market is the place to go!

I am a little late with my review for various reasons. However, my visit to Cape Town Fish Market was just wonderful, food, staff, service we just could not fault in anyway. Staff very friendly and many thanks to Alan the restaurant manager who looked after our party and made sure everything went very well for my mother's 90th birthday celerbrations. Mother is great for her age, she loves fish and this day was very special both at this restaurant and after at the show of Sister Act. We returned to CTFM after the show for early eventing drinks before retuning to our hotel for dinner, but I wish we had stayed at CTFM as we were having such fun and dinner at the hotel was a lttle flat after our visit to CTFM . Many thanks again to all the staff at CTFM. Pictures have turned out fab, I will bring some with us when we return in September.. See you all soon..<br /><br />Debbie Dounting, Buckinghamshire.
