I love the new premises of the Med. This has been an old favourite of ours. We enjoyed our visit back to see Marianne and Dave. We shared a calamari tube starter which was delicious. We then had a sole and a grilled kingclip. Both were beautifully cooked. We chose vegetables as due to the electricity load shedding they could... More

Must recommend the prawn starter, this was our second visit and not disappointed. We all enjoyed various fish dishes and would advise anyone to have the mash or rice. Service has been excellent and anyone travelling in South africe will understand the power cuts. The med team have been very helpful in advising us with timings of power cuts and... More

Decided to go for Dinner (without booking) to The Med Bistro, on entering the Restautant it was quite busy, but we were accommodated and taken to our table. The food was very good, two had fish and two had chicken, all very tasty. Eunice who was our Waitress was excellent, and very efficient, a pleasant evening was had by all.

Pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff and tasty food. Service was slow (server good, but understaffed). Would definitely go again.

We felt very welcome upon booking and arrival of our dinner. The power was out this evening and they did really well to provide a good dining experience in the circumstances. We had mussels and calamari to start which were delicious, I'd advise ordering a side bread to go with the mussels. For mains we enjoyed a 300g sirloin steak... More

Have been dining at The Med almost since it opened (25+ years ago). It has recently moved across the road to part of a local hotel. Nothing has changed. The food, with the emphasis very much on seafood, has always been consistently good. The service is, and has always been, attentive. Great food, reasonable prices,friendly service, plus an owner who... More

Not a bad little restaurant to visit. We were welcomed warmly on a very rainy evening after I had called in a booking. Starters where tasty and a great seafood platter to share. I would come back.
