They say: "The Codfather opened as a Seafood restaurant about 10 years ago - one of the first Sushi venues in Cape Town. We serve an excellent array of fresh seafood and sushi in a very vibey, yet warm and relaxed environment. The large sliding window frontage allows us to open up to those beautiful warm summer nights the Cape experiences. In addition there is a large, open fireplace situated in the centre of it all for the cold winter nights. Sheer reputation and word of mouth has brought us customers from all over the world - many of them, local and foreign, becoming regular visitors."

Parker Cottage Guesthouse says: "You don't go to the Codfather to be seen and you also don't go for the crisp white table cloths and surly waiters. You do go if you're a local, though, and you keep going back. This is seafood the way it should be: a lovely range of fish and shellfish, 90% of which is South African, cooked in the simplest ways with no sauces, herbs or spices. There is no menu at the Codfather: what you eat is what they have in the fridge (never freezer) that day. Wash it all down with their lavish wine list and take in the sea view. Then go back the next night!"
