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.

Fantastic New Years Eve!

After going many years to the old cod father that was on Rivonia (literally 1km from the house) I was disappointed to hear that it was moving. What got me more down was the fact that the menu was different. Anyways thats water under the bridge and Codfather was the venue for New Years Eve. One of our friends was down from the UK, who previously lived in Johannesburg, and he loves the flavours and variety of food we get in Jozie.

The restaurant is situated on the ground floor of the Sandton Skye building. It is extremely spacious with both and inside and outside seating area. They have the usual fish and seafood display where you can pick and choose from a variety of seafood and make your own meal.

I usually used to order the chicken and prawn combo they had at the old restaurant, but since the menu had changed I decided on the half peri-peri chicken from the menu to see if it could live up the expectations its predecessor had left. The chicken wasn't as quite there, but it was still great. It was served with a generous portion of chips, and peri-peri sauce on the side.

For dessert I had noticed the ice cream stand as we had walked in and had set my heart on that for my dessert. I ordered 2 scoops, one was the starbuck coffee flavour, the other flavour has seem to be lost in the blur of the drinks that flowed that night as well. However the ice cream was lovely but could have been a little creamier especially if its made in house.

Thanks to the staff of Codfather for a fantastic New Years Eve.

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!
