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!
