    Seafood: Panama Jack's

    Panama Jack's

    The restaurant is just a ramshackle, unpromising looking wharf side shack in Cape Town's commercial harbour. The décor is very basic but the food is excellent.

    Favorite Dish: You can choose your own live lobster or abalone from the sea water tanks. They also keep mussels and Namibian oysters alive in the tanks so that you are assured of fresh seafood. The calamari and prawns are also excellent

    Panama Jack's: In the heart of the docks

    A ramshackle, unpromising looking building down in the docks (Take a taxi), but don't be fooled - lobster, crab, abalone, etc to die for. And very reasonably priced.

    Favorite Dish: Lobster straight out of the tank. Choose your own.

    Been running for 19 years in the same spot in the actual commercial harbour area, this restaurant offers great value for money, especially during lunch time.

    Favorite Dish: 1/2 kilo of prawns with rice or chips
