    Default Cape town area best fish and chips????

    Going to cape town for few nights between christmas and new year.
    We love Fish on the Rocks at the very end of the Hout Bay drive. Its simple, tasty and has a very unique charm. And the seafood is always fresh.
    Any other such places within 30 or 40 minutes?
    What other activities have you enjoyed in Cape Town? 4x4 ing is out as have hired a platkar.

    Also have been to Sea Gypsey in Mossel bay? This is the kinda place I'm looking for..

    Hot slap chips, drizzled with vinegar and salt, is something most would like.
    Fried snoek or hake in the batter is also good.

    Fish Hoek or Plumstead Fisheries.
    I'd avoid Kalkies, personally.

    Sadly , some fish shops in the less salubrious areas will always try and hook you ! Be aware….

    I went to a great fish and chips eatery in Rooi-els years ago.
    The guy ran it from his house and the only choice was how many chips with your fish :-)
    When you booked you would let him know how many people and when the fish was finished you went home.
    No seconds or desert !!

    Oh, the little fish and chips shop on the main road in Melkbos is also good.

    I always buy fish and chips in the industrial areas, the type that sell to the local workers. I find the high volume sales always ensures fresh fish.

    I stay away from franchise type outlets (that may look a bit grander) because my experience is that their fresh fish is just freshly (frozen) fish and the fish are much smaller.

    Generally only buy where you can order a piece of (hake or stock) middlecut (in a parcel) Absolutely the best fish meal you'll ever eat. If they can't do that, then you may as well buy your fish and chips in Jozi and look at a picture of the sea!

    Avoid Kalkies. We went there when we first moved to the area four years ago and were told by one of the Kalkies staff that even she wouldn't eat there.

    However, right next to them in the harbour, is Lucky Fish (in the Harbour House building) and they make the best calamari and chips this side of Cape St Francis....and they pile it in your newspaper wrapping too!!

    If you're looking for an inexpensive restaurant, try Live Bait right next to Lucky Fish....our favourite restaurant in the area.
    I'd rather be fishing, camping or brewing beer...

    And maybe on one of the days I'd like to take a drive to paternoster. Featured on masterchef. Looks like the freshest shellfish. Yet simple and down to earth
