Guest Reviews

Some words from our guests
Loved my experience both times at the Codfather and look forward to returning again! We have had two successful work events hosted here and the staff and management were attentive to our needs as well as our clients! Relaxed, neat, crisp setting - beautiful bar and lovely outside area. Tried a variety of snacks/starters including sliders, fish and chips, sushi, ribs, chicken wings and soups - ALL were delicious and beautifully presented. Definitely a top pick for me!
Can't go wrong here whatever you order. Fish and sushi are the obvious choices, but lots of other options too including for the vegetarians. A great wine selection suitable for all pockets. Remember to leave space for dessert!
Lovely service and good food and the ambience is top notch 👌. The portions are an average size which is perfect, I'll definitely come back.
Choice of fresh fish and shell fish. Grilled very simply but very delicious. Great service. We had a platter of shell fish and a fish called Mussel Cracker. It was really tasty.
Always a great choice, whether for lunch or dinner out as a couple, or to take visiting family from abroad. Love the setting indoors and on the patio.The menu is not just for the fisheaters among us, but will happily satisfy the carnivores and vegetarians too. The wine list is extensive, for any pocket with good specials available. Not a cheap venue, but that's what you expect in this part of town.Leave space for dessert!
First of all, I have to confess that I ended up eating a rather large steak for dinner, versus any of the wonderful seafood meals I dreamt up before arrival. I did share some sushi for starters, but that just speaks to the great variety of food and drinks they had on offer. Oh, and a really good red wine led me down the road to the steak, by the way... The bar is impressively stocked, with a great selection of drinks. I went there at the invitation of a colleague, who had been there before, and the visit, on a rainy Sandton evening, was well worth it.
