Our background & philosophy

Since the late 80’s the owners of the Famous Fishoek Co. Brand have a proud record of having been directly involved in the development and ownership of several extremely successful food outlets.Thanks to the great support and following in our brand we feel the time has come to expand throughout Gauteng and maybe as time goes by beyond.

Previous and existing outlets include:

Billy’s Village Steakhouse, Village Green Family Restaurant, Cappucino’s Pizzeria, Yacht Club Cafe, Milky Lane Menlyn, Mugg & Bean Menlyn, Mugg & Bean Kolonnade, Cafe Bugatti Brooklyn, Cafe Bugatti Franchising Company – including 9 franchises, O’Galito Centurion and Famous Fishoek Co. The collective experience of the owners and management of the group in the food industry has contributed to the establishment and success of the Famous Fishoek Co. concept, providing its customers with a high level of service, quality meals, and good value for money. Our philosophy is that our team within each store is the single most important ingredient to our organisation and future success. We believe that by applying our philosophy we can execute sustainability within our market place and give us a competitive edge over our competitors.

In 2011 we opened our first store in Lynnwood Bridge, Pretoria, with great success. Shortly after that, we were offered sites for the Famous Fishoek Co. at Sterland (Atterbury’s Newtown new development), the Mall@Reds and Brooklyn Design Square. We are all about seafood and that will always come first, although our offering includes our famous Piri-Piri chicken, our No 1 rated Portuguese-style ribs, and our steakhouse grills. Our store is a place for everybody – particularly those who enjoy a relaxed holiday atmosphere with a warm and contemporary feel.
