When i first saw the sign thought I will never go there, as the beach at the entrance of Westbrook always had scaly people on it and therefor thought the same was inside, but what a wonderful surprise. The day we went there was a power outage fortunately they had gas, and there were only a few dishes (duck) they... More

We had dishes ranging from poppy seed encrusted Tempura Prawn with papaya and green chilli salsa ... To chicken breast stuffed with Cajun prawns done with a curry sauce and my amazing... More

A separate vegetarian menu - my wife was delighted. The meals were all very tasty and the non-vegetarian meals were all outstanding. The view is one of the best and adds that extra special dimension to a meal - no matter what time of day. We will certainly visit again.

I have been going to Spice now since it was located on Florida road many years ago. The then moved to Windermere road and have now finally settled in Westbrook. The restaurant itself is quaint and in a beautiful setting with breathtaking views of the ocean. The food at Spice is and has always prepared to perfection in an exciting... More

I live in Los Angeles, California and my parents who live in Durban just told me the most amazing and moving story about Russell at Spice. My parents made a reservation at Spice and confirmed with Russell that they had duck on the menu as my parents really like the Spice duck. Unfortunately on the day my parents were supposed... More

6 of us had dinner at Spice recently.. we made a slightly late start as three members of our party got lost on the way. The result was that we placed our orders later than planned. Overall the food was fine (but no rave reviews from anyone around the table) but we found the service very slow. Three staff members... More

Having moved from Florida Road to Westbrook Beach, the restaurant got the only extra it needed - a splendid view over the Indian Ocean. Owner Russell and Patron Chef, Linda ensures that everyone will leave perfectly satisfied and with the business card in their wallet because you would surely wish to return. A varied menu of fish, different meats, curries,... More
