From the Moçambique border in the East to the Namibian border in the West, South-Africa’s coastline is rich in seafood and fresh line-fish (“the catch of the day”) is always a good menu option if you are a fish-lover.

South Africa has large Greek and Portuguese communities whose love of seafood is legendary and whose restaurant menus stand testimony to this passion. If you’re in the mood for seafood, just ask your friends or hotel concierge to reserve you a table at the nearest Greek or Portuguese restaurant. Similarly Asian restaurants (Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian) are a good source of fresh and well-prepared seafood dishes.

The people of the West Coast (north of Cape Town, heading towards the border of Namibia) are lovers of crayfish and snoek and are particularly adept at grilling seafood over open fires. Beach restaurants like Muisbosskerm and Die Strandloper are the places to try mussel kebabs, freshly grilled line-fish and halved crayfish tails basted with butter.
