Was good, but I had better experiences before

I am an old patron but had not visited in 3 years. The food was still good, but it was better. I found always rave about the prawn bucket with the chilli sauce. This time around it was just ok. However I would definitely give it another try, before I write-off, because it was one of my favourite... read more

Stopped off for a quick supper. Welcomed like old friends. Stormy, balmy Durban summer night. Chilled wine, fresh bread, updated menu...Persuaded 9 year old son to have line fish. He didn't finish it and waitress and owner came to ask how it was. On hearing he didn't enjoy it, they discounted the bill. This place is an exception in many... More

Peri Peri sauce was to die for! The rolls were fresh the butter was genuine butter, always important and the chilies tasty as all hell. Management have redecorated but the service a... More

Great food now with updated, neat decor. The revamp has kept the welcoming, warm atmosphere without the clutter. The new extended and opened outside area will be very popular in Summer.

Wow! The chilli paste had kick but was also pleasing. Attention to detail was fantastic. Food arrived in under twenty minutes: fresh and sizzling. The chicken espetada was succulent... More

If you want to eat prawns, this is the place! Very good and value for money. The mussels in creamy sauce, served in a little black three legged pot is "to die for!" I sometimes order 2 as a main course. The Portuguese buns are fine for dipping into the thick creamy sauce!. BEWARE the chilli relish. It is very... More

A nice restaurant that is undergoing an interior revamp soon. The owner who's a dynamic business woman is always around to help her customers as well and make sure everything served is five stars. We had the prawns special and found it a bit too spicy. Upon hearing of this from the waitress, the owner came right over and whisked... More
