Built around the hull of the Kingfisher, an original 1940s wooden trawler from the Hout Bay fleet, this is the flagship precinct of the Wharf and purveys fresh fish, live lobsters, oysters, mussels, patés, bokkems, sushi, local and imported seafood. Daily-baked bread, rolls and biscuits are also available at its Bakery, as well as sandwiches.
Only the freshest of products are sold at Fisherman's Wharf®, the official name for its fishmarket, with fish cleaned, filleted and sold in full view of customers.
Nearby, old barrels and wooden crates display an extensive selection of sauces, condiments, oils and spices, together with cooldrinks, sweets, chips, nuts and nibbles for the drive home.
And, as in olden days, its Smokeries faithfully puff away producing the iconic Cape Coast® and Smokiesnoek® brands of smoked fish. Its Oak-Smoked Snoek recipe has been passed down through three centuries by one generation of the Dorman family to the next.
Check the story on its distinctive box to ensure having purchased the genuine product, as the only other official outlet Cape Coast® products are locally available is at domestic departures, Cape Town Airport.
