Fisherman's Wharf

Purveyors of the best local and imported seafood
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.


Fresh fish smoked over oak fires
The Smokeries are an integral part of Mariner’s Wharf. Out of the smokeries comes our famous smoked snoek, smoked over genuine oakwood. When the Smokeries are operating, the warm freshly-smoked fish literally flies off the shelves in the Fishmarket. Besides snoek, other varieties of fish such as tuna and angelfish are also produced.

Live Lobsters

Take your pick from the catch of the day
The Fishmarket at Mariner’s Wharf features one of the few open-to-the-public live lobster tanks in South Africa. Besides stocking the freshest catch of the day, here you can select your lobster of choice and size. Lobster tails and whole cooked lobsters are also available.


Fresh breads and rolls baked daily
Alongside the bustling corridors delivering fresh fish to the Fishmarket, is our Bakery, with a dedicated artisan baker producing the famous Mariner’s Wharf seed loaves, beloved by all who have dined in the upstairs Wharfside Grill restaurant.
