BOTH OF US GOT FOOD POISONING!!! Do NOT eat here! Both my boyfriend and i got the most chronic food poisoning from eating at this restaurant on Friday 17th January 2014! We had oysters, tuna and sea bass and spend the next 4 days living in the bathroom....wont go into detail, but we were so incredibly ill. I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to get food poisoning on your anniversary weekend. I will never eat in this restaurant ever again.


I came to your restaurant on saturday night with my friend and our three children. As adults, we ordered the mussels, which were swimming in what can only be described as a powdered soup. There was no more than a dozen mussels, many of which had been thrown in the bowl for us to eat around the broken shells. We were in a real rush to get to the show for 7.30pm. Under any other circumstances I would have complained at the time and been happy to see if an alternative dish would have improved my perception of the food served. Not good.


Went to CTFM last night, spur of the moment decision, expectations not great based on reviews but was actually pleasantly surprised. Bit of a hotch-potch concept, granted, but the staff were friendly and knowledgeable, the service quick and the fish tasted very fresh. It's not J Sheekey, granted - more a fishy equivalent of TGIs - but perhaps early reviews weren't a fair indicator after all. It's a West End tourist trap so judging it by the same standards as Scotts is not exactly relevant.


went to cape town fish market last night and i must say i am never going back. whilst expecting the same grade A service and food quality as in Jo'burg the london restaurant is a disappointment. We waited for 15 minutes before someone came and gave us a menu or asked what we'd like to drink. after asking for an exchange for the starter as the mussels were not up to par the waitress spilt the mussel cream all over our table and clothes and found it very amusing. the fish cakes are to die for but mussels are a disappointment. for mains we had grilled sea bass and surf and turf. the sea food was lovely but the steak lacked in taste. when asked about the spillage the management said they could not do anything about it since it was a mistake and took off £13 off our £82 bill stating thats all they could do and if we had a problem with it we should write a letter as he could not spend the whole night talking to us because he had customers. for a place with mediocre food the service made the experience very upsetting. if you were to go there wish and hope for nothing to go wrong because if it does, the staff cannot do anything about it. they are more or less useless.
