El Forno is across the road, with view on the ocean. The oysters were of excellent quality. The portions were large. All in all good value for money. The prices were very reasonable.

We have been regularly visiting this establishment regularly the past 10 - 15 years under different management, the pizzas are good (the view excellent) - the service consistent and good people UNFORTUNATELY the current owners have seriously overpriced their product to the extent that a fairly average Pizza with selected ingredients are priced close to a fillet steak with accompanyments...

Went to al forno's four times the past few weeks. Pizza's are good, the linefish of the day was a bit overcooked and tiramisu had been sitting for too long. Otherwise friendly staff, kid friendly did everying for our 1 year old. For the price it's good, don't expect anything fancy though.

A popular corner restaurant and pub which is well located. Just an average place for a cold beer and some average. Not bad. Really, don't book - just pitch up. If full - just move on.

....great place to be, great terrace, new ownership, but food still takes too long to be prepared, same like before, some staff trained and attentive others not at all and as you get the bill, you'll be astonished, too expensive, no value for money, and tip will automatically added, be careful

My wife and I found this gem while visiting Gordons Bay. The menu is varied with everything you'd expect to find on an italian menu but suprisingly we both ordered steaks as we felt like meat. They were both delicious and the veggies that accompanied the meat was also great. The pizzas looked amazing as we couldn't he;p seeing other... More

We visited on a Monday night which is probably not the best night to review a restaurant. There is an unusual set up with the seating - the smokers sit inside in the main restaurant and have tables at the window - the non-smokers sit on the side in the 'extension' or on the stoep. So as non-smokers we ended... More
