Calamari was rubbery, staff were friendly and the service was good. This restaurant sometimes puts out great food, but it seems they also quiet often lately have their off days...

My experience here was nothing out of the ordinary... the food was ..well seafood done on a mass production style manner. the service was almost non existent. rather do take aways only. I would rather eat at the Durban North branch. atmosphere and service is much better there.
