Firefish Restaurant – V&A Waterfront

Firefish Restaurant, yet another new restaurant added to the Kove Collection portfolio, one wonders how they do it, but they do it almost seamlessly.

The freshest seafood whether raw, cooked or roasted they do it all. They even cater for the meat lover and vegetarian’s dinners, so all bases are covered.

They will grill your choice of protein in the very posh state to the art Josper Charcoal Grill.” This hybrid grill burns only top-quality charcoal and operates at an ultra-high temperature to allow us to grill and roast while preserving and enhancing the most delicate flavours.”

They have 2 menus and I love that they called the one “FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TO SHARE” because after all that what dining means to us, to share with love ones to break bread with old and new friends, it’s where connections are made.

The Wraps


Our waiter Zaza gave us an introduction into the concept. When asked which dishes she would recommend for the photography blog, she found it quite difficult as she said everything was beautifully presented. Once our dishes arrived we quickly understood why she had a problem. Not only did everything look divine, they tasted amazing. Definitely some of the freshest dishes we have had this year.

 Below are pics from our selections off the “FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TO SHARE” menu.

 Little Bao’s – Crunchy Shrimp

 Dim Sum – Vegetable

 Bowls & Things – Edamame ; Spicy Tuna ; Tuna Tartare

 Tempura – K.F.C – Karaage Fried Calamari





After these we couldn’t even attempt the main menu, but Zaza twisted our arm and we tried the desserts. We certainly weren’t disappointed, each one tasted as yummy as it looked.


 Coconut Panna Cotta

Cotton Cheesecake

Spiced Carrot Cheesecake



Firefish Restaurant has everything its needs to succeed and we wish them well, they will see us soon so we can try the actual menu J.
