Nice view, but that's all

Went here for lunch. The restaurant has a big balcony overlooking the harbor and the vendors on the street below. The food was average and not really value for money, but the atmosphere was good and the staff friendly.

Situated on main street in Port Elizabeth is a great location so we went upstairs for a beer at sunset. Location was nice and barmaid nice so we decided to stay for food- what a mistake. ,!!!, WITH NOBODY AHEAD OF... More

Got to be the worst cheeseburger ever! And took nearly two hours to come! No apology and got the bill wrong. I hope they improve as they couldn't get worse.

We stopped into to Maria's for a drink and saw lion fish on the menu. We ordered a plate and enjoyed the fish (slightly oily and sweet). The slaw and fries were also good. Drinks were great as was the view.

Went to Marias for burgers and chips as a treat for the kids. After a long long long long wait the burgers arrived. My son bit into his and I am not joking - there was blood running down his chin as the meat was so raw. It appears that the burgers had been cooked from frozen and were charred... More

If you order a hamburger you will get it well done or very well done - it doesn't matter what you order. I got food poisoning from this place. It has more flies than a dead horse. Service is rotten if at all busy.

We were here with a group of people and we were accommodated perfectly. Food arrived at the same time, was reasonably priced and very very good.

Nice terrace cafe in central location with a gorgeous view of the bay. Go for the view and free wifi and cable TV, but spend the least amout of money you can. Ordering food is painful and you get service with a frown. Also beware that even though the menu says all main courses include two side dishes not all... More

As you walk in you are taken by the view of the harbour. But I worn you be prepared for staff attitude in abundance and even owner attitude when you point out that his staff need to be trained not only how to work in this business but how to behave...BIG WARNING you do not get sides with all the...
