Dinner

I had supper at the Codfather Sandton tonight. I ordered a T-Bone that I wanted with a pepper crust. My waitron was not sure, but the chef came to his and my rescue saying that it was possible. Was great. Well done Codfather. I will certainly be back very soon.

The Extra Mile!

What a pleasant Sunday lunch stop. Went for a 87th birthday, staff went above and beyond to make her day. The tuna steak off menus is brilliant, as is ordering from the wet fish area. My personal. High light was the deserts. The trio of ice cream sandwiches is a flavour sensation.

Outstanding Seafood!

On a three week trip to South Africa this was by far and away the best food that we ate, in fact we so enjoyed our first visit that we went back again 3 days later.

Starting with the restaurants sommelier picking us up from our hotel, through the wine service, food service and the food, and taking us back home again, everything was of the highest standard.

We met the chef, Michael Loskowski, originally from Poland, but now married to a Cape Town girl, and boy does he do a fantastic job.

The first time we had some Luderitz Oysters, a steamed linefish (delicious), Japanese Scallops (lovely) and a salad to start, followed by a wonderful seafood curry, and excellent Bouillabaisse, and an enormous seafood platter for two. This was all washed down with two wonderful wine recommendations, a Metis Sav Blanc and a very good 2008 Mont du Toit blend. All this for about £22 a head. Wonderful.

The second time around we were a little more extravagant and picked various shellfish and fish for a grill. More Oysters and then some fresh whitebait.

For the grill we had Kingclip, Mussel Cracker (which was a little overrated), Tiger Giant prawns, Crayfish Tails, Calamari and some linefish (Pangasius).

Similar wines as the first visit.

The service was attentive, without intruding, and really very good.

If you go to Jozi and like fish, do go and eat here.

A must-try!

It's the first time KevFabFood has been to the new Cod Father - the restaurant is very modern and has lots of natural light - the waiters are all very friendly and willing to help, food is fresh - delicious and beautifully platted with good-sized portions. I had the Salmon with pea Risotto and then the baked Alaska - only draw-back is the construction in the area and weird parking arrangements - however this is an awesome fish restaurant and a must-try!

Impressive!

Went to lunch at the "new" venue for this old restaurant. The new venue is bright, friendly, open, modern and definitely impressive, much better in my opinion than the previous venue. The food really impressed me, especially considering I cannot eat anything shellfish and this is mainly a seafood restaurant. I had the Mushroom Ravioli for starters and it was wonderful - in fact I will have this for mains next time and just ask for a larger serving - the flavours were really awesome and the mushrooms were a delight. For mains I had the Beef Stir fry and again, really impressive in taste and flavor. They have a great wine and bubbly selection and if you're not sure about which one they will let you taste before deciding. The one thing that must be taken into account when booking and picking a seating space is that in summer it gets very hot under the glass roof part of the patio. Try to either sit inside or in the part of the patio where there is a solid roof. Overall a great experience and I will definitely be back.
