Have you tried SeaBreeze Fish & Shell?

Situated on Bree Street in the vibrant Mother City, SeaBreeze offers locally sourced, sustainable seafood presented simply, but beautifully.

The menu is a one-pager offering something for every seafood lover. I enjoyed the Beetroot Pickled Cauliflower, Amasi and Radish dressed oyster as an appetiser… a vibrant burst of flavour in one mouthful with the natural taste of the oyster still the hero.

Friends dining with me chose to order a handful of small plates (tapas style) and thought the Grilled Prawns, Red Slaw, Chilli Nuts and Sesame Mayo was delightful. The Seared Tuna Nicoise, Quail Egg, Olives and Green Beans was another favourite small plate.

I chose to have a main course. With too many top choices on offer, I finally decided to order the Fishcake with Prawns, Prawn Bisque and Green Beans. The actual fishcake was light, tasty and filled with sumptuous fresh fish. The bisque was packed with prawn flavour and together, this made a cohesive dish which I thoroughly enjoyed. I did notice that the fish pie was a popular choice at tables around us. Topped with shards of phyllo pastry, the steaming hot centre of ocean goodness looked mouth-wateringly good. I’ll try that next time!

We had our eye on the Rose Water Crème Brulee for dessert, but so did everyone else! It was sold out and we had to opt for the Lemon Tart to finish the evening (which was not too tart). This was the perfect finish!

The drinks menu is also a one-pager with wines carefully chosen to work well with the seafood. Our table enjoyed the easy-drinking Miss Lucy blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Pinot Gris which happens to have a fish as its logo!

The restaurant décor is simple yet effective. You’ll notice shades of blue and sea green on the walls; the seating and in the handmade crockery which I admired. The staff are friendly and informative and prices are reasonable.

This new kid on the city block comes highly recommended. It’s so refreshing for a coastal city like Cape Town to have a down-to- earth but delicious dedicated seafood restaurant on offer. It is definitely my new favourite seafood spot!

FeaturedFynbos: The Cape's best kept secret
You have heard about Table Mountain, Cape Point and certainly the V&A Waterfront. Vineyards. Wine. Beaches. But have you heard about the incredible diversity of fynbos?

FeaturedTaste & Sea: Best Restaurants in Cape Town
There are very few foodie destinations in the world that can compete with Cape Town. Here new and exceptional restaurants pop up faster than you can say Bon Apetit and locals are quite frankly, spoiled, spoiled, for choice. And it is not just the fact that, year after year, Cape Town based chefs rank among the best in the world. Their culinary feats are matched, perhaps even surpassed, by the incredible views and vistas that greet you wherever you turn …
FeaturedHomespun Restaurant Puts Tableview on Cape Town’s Culinary Map
Were you to Google ‘Fine dining in Cape Town’, Tableview would not be the first area to feature. Indeed, our foodie hotspots are mainly in the city centre, or a little further flung out in the Winelands. While Tableview might offer one of the most iconic views of Table Mountain, it had little to offer visitors on the special dinner front. Chef Matt Schreuder is changing all of that. Inspired by his several years of experience in Michelin star restaurants …
