Ambience is all about creating the perfect environment for an exceptional dining experience, and Firefish - in signature Kove Collection style- is all about neutral interiors, stylish décor, creating a serene harbour-side space to dine alfresco or inside with friends and family.

Overlooking the quay and the Atlantic Ocean, under the silhouette of the iconic Table Mountain, Firefish has won the balance between fine and family dining with its modern contemporary menu featuring a blend of fish and grills.

Using the freshest ingredients the flavours in seafood and meats are enhanced on Firefish’s state-of-the-art hybrid Josper Charcoal Grill, which operates at an ultra-high temperature to grill, sear, roast and crisp.

The a la carte menus offer diners a huge variety from freshly shucked oysters, to sushi and salads, vegetarian dishes, fish, meat and chicken dishes; to individual dessert choices.

A sublime and seasonal tasting table is offered by the Chef’s Winter Menu; a voyage of mouth-watering perfection encompassing a fusion of delectable seafood styles.

Start your seafront dining excursion with six of Firefish’s freshly shucked oysters in the half shell for R99. Savour the aroma of 1kg of black mussels steamed with shallots, garlic, thyme, white wine and cream (R110) or tuck into 500g of crispy prawns seared in olive oil, butter, chilli, garlic and lemon (R120).
