FABULOUS!! We decided to try Cape Town Fish Market since it was listed in our dining guide & offered a nice discount. We have the London Pass which boasts of the dining guide. Being from New York we are spoiled. This restaurant is lovely, the food superb and the service was awesome.

We loved the fresh fish and variety of dishes offered. I also loved the wine.

Overall, a 10.

Went to the Cape Town Fish Market on Friday night with my partner, was worried it might be too busy and noisy as some reviews suggested, but in fact it was lovely! Lovely atmosphere, great "fish tanks" lovely service and wonderful food. Not cheap though! But the upside is they do accept tastecards! Would highly recommend for all you fish lovers!

i'd like to make everyone aware that this restaurant adds 20% VAT to the prices advertised on their menus - it's probably in the small print somewhere but it does leave a sour taste in the mouth when you get the bill.

The food is satisfactory but overvalued for the prices they charge - £18 for ribs (about 6 ribs - Tony Romas is much better value).

Location is great but food is way overpriced.

a group of 17 of us attended a friends birthday on Saturday evening just gone (4th feb 2012) despite the food being very good (a few of us had eaten there before) we do have a couple of grumbles - a deposit had to be paid in advance which meant a journey into the west end as there was no option to pay a deposit by card it had to be presented in cash - we were told it was in case we cancelled !!! (hardly likely with 17 people to re-organise after settling on the venue) when we asked - whilst paying the deposit about childrens options, were told there was no child option and even though they would probably eat a few chips only that it would be the same price as an adult meal!

When it came to paying the bill we were shocked to see a service charge of over £60, we tried discussing this with the staff involved then asked for the Manager when it became apparent they did not have a clue what they were talking about. The manager was no better saying it was optional but......erm, but what? - he couldn't actually give us an answer as to why we had been charged this much, having paid a bill of over £500, we should have been given the choice. It left a sour taste in the mouth after what had been a pleasant evening.
