The Fishmonger Illovo is the first of all of the Fishmonger restaurants and is one of Johannesburg’s top seafood eateries. We are well situated in the Thrupps Centre in Illovo, Sandton.
Our menu offers a wide variety of shellfish, fresh line fish and sushi. We also cater for the non fish eater with organic beef dishes, as well as Portuguese flame-grilled chicken and other Portuguese dishes.
Our lunches are very business orientated from Monday to Friday, but weekends are more family orientated.
Dinner service has a relaxed vibe that works well for any occasion, from family time to couples out for the night. Everyone is welcome and well taken care of.
Come and experience the Mediterranean magic. We pride ourselves in offering the best seafood in town.
Here’s what some of The Fishmonger Illovo’s customers have to say
Easily the best seafood restaurant in Johannesburg if not South Africa! The service is outstanding and the management and owner, Pedro has an exceptional eye and attention to detail. The wine options are excellent, the waiters very well trained and the food is always fresh and beautiful. The line fish options are always great. Not only that, the sushi is outstanding. We are regulars here and are always impressed and always happy with our experiences. Highly recommended!!!!
Been a loyal customer for over 12 years – the most personable and brilliant service from managers and serving staff alike – fantastic range of seafood as well as the best platters I’ve ever tasted.
The food is good. The service is excellent. The layout is wonderful. Makes for a great relaxing Sunday meal.
Consistent great service and quality. Fish is seriously good! Very busy on Saturday night so be patient.
I always visit this restaurant when i am visiting Johannesburg. Particularly enjoy it on a sunday lunchtime towards the end of the sitting.
Food is always good and fresh and service very attentive.
A sensational seafood experience, it is always such a treat visiting this restaurant, you get treated so well and the food always tastes amazing…
Their oysters are delicious and so is there sushi. My favourite dish is the Seared Fresh Scottish Salmon, it’s always cooked to perfection and is oh so delicious. Their specials are also good so be sure to ask for them, I once had seared tuna skewers, probably one of the best things I have ever tasted.

What a fantastic place!
The service here is great! The food is just absolutely delicious. All the sea food is incredibly fresh, and just melts in your mouth. The portions are very big too! No one had any complaints around the table.
Overall, Fishmonger in Illovo is definitely one of the best seafood places I’ve been to in Joburg! (https://lexieats.co.za)
I ventured to The Fishmonger on a busy friday night and yes, the place was packed. The reservations list went over two pages so if you plan on going, get those bookings in early!
The Fishmonger probably had the best service I experienced in a long time and the waiters were very efficient at the small things. If I had to rate the service alone it would be 5 stars!
Was invited by girls at work (to join out of town team) for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is spacious so although busy we did not feel at all crowded.
This is a family favourite of ours, we have been going here for years. It is my grandmothers absolute favourite.
This place is always busy and I think one of the best places for seafood in Jozi. Even though we had to wait a while, we were quite happy waiting at the sushi bar and watching the chefs creating colourful and mouth watering sushi.
Always stop by at Fishmonger Illovo whenever I am in Jhb to enjoy good seafood. The entrée is usually so good that I don’t get as far as the dessert menu!
