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.

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.

Great Experience

Well I've been meaning to try this place for a while, the building is sublime and modern. I had the oysters as my starter which were fresh and delicious. The fish bar is just out of this world, I didn't know what to choose so I tried a little bit of everything. The langoustines and king prawns were perfectly cooked and don't get me started on the calamari. The wine selection is extensive and there are even a couple of gems that are not on the menu which are great for special occasions. Management was very hands on and helpful. I think our waiter was little preoccupied at times (not sure with what though) but all in all a great experience

Excellent restaurant with excellent food and service

From the time the owner picked us up at the hotel (we did not know this at the time) until he took us back, it was a priceless evening. We were treated so well. They have an excellent wine selection. They helped with suggestions with wine and food. Our waiter, Ali, was excellent. Everyone was. My husband had the sole. Best he's ever had. I had mussels and langoustines. Overall, it was just the perfect way to end our time in Johannesburg.
