Superb service. Food was excellent, and beautifully presented ... All 3 courses! My husbands steak was cooked to perfection: medium, just as he ordered it. Friendly and attentive staff. A must when on holiday in Umdloti.

Very friendly staff and delicious food. The kinda restaurant you always come back to. Nothing better than looking at the ocean as you eat your seafood
