Sorry guys, we decided to support a local business but wanted to sit on the beach and eat our fish a chips. The fish was soggy and very few chips at quite a price really. No utensils either which was a surprise. Perhaps include a plastic fork? Not even close to the best meal we had in the Garden Route.

The restaurant is situated next to a gas station, so you do not expect to mmuch, but when we entered we were welcomed in a very friendly manner and surprised by the nice French style interior. The food was lovely, mostly fish and seafood, delicious and very fresh.

A simple, but charmless interior. The restaurant gives the impression that it is run by amateurs, not professionals. The staff are pleasant, but are certainly not adequately trained. The wine list is perfunctory. However, the fish was well prepared and the portions were generous. You would do better, simply ordering the take-aways.
