Hg2 : The Hedonist


If you prefer fresh to frozen, then Fishmonger is the place to salivate over seafood in Jo’burg. Run by its owner, the landmark restaurant in Illovo offers seafood and service in equal measures across a neat indoor/outdoor space, with much of its fish only caught just the day before. Booking is essential as diners flock here in their droves, and the bustling crowd keep the atmosphere relaxed and free of any pretentious airs. The menu includes everything from Scottish salmon, Falkland calamari, sardines, black mussels, seafood espetada and sushi. Prawns, of course, are a house speciality and come in all plump shapes and sizes, while the healthy Greek salad with squid heads and lobster bisque make for a delicious starter.
