Fish Restaurant that's worth a visit

I'm not a big fan of Fish restaurants in general, however I would recommend this one. My wife and I spent two evenings in which we enjoyed both our meals. My wife sampled Prawns in a creamy white wine sauce whilst I sampled the delights of the Kingclip fish with large prawns on a bed of... read more

We dined with another couple and found all dishes selected most delicious. The rock cod was particularly tasty and a very generous portion too. It was served with butternut and creamed spinach which was most tasty. The other dishes of queen prawns and prawns and calamari were just as delicious. Service was attentive but not annoying. The restaurant was busy,... More

Had a great meal here and the service was very good. It's a fish restaurant so go for fish. It was packed which is always a good sign.

We hosted international visitors here on their first night in South Africa. They were blown away by the quality of the meals and the value for money. The menu selections and portion sizes are large, but the plates were clean when everyone was finished. I was proud that we could show people from overseas that we have restaurants of quality...

My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner tonight. We were there early before it got busy and we waited 30 mins for 1 small calamari starter at R65. The main meal was very average and nothing special, prawn curry and fillet steak. Our general feeling was this restaurant has deteriorated in quality and value for money over the... More

The food (fish) was excellent prepared and came with a huge selection of condiments. The waiters were professional and friendly. The furniture and decor are outdated and need some serious attention as well as their printed menus.

If you like prawns do not hesitate to taste that restaurant. Yu will find a plenty of choice… well-cooked prawns, nice atmospheres. I took the chefs recommendation “the King Prawns” with a glass of dry white wine and the combination was perfect.

We last had a meal here about 15 years ago, decided to pop in to see if the quality was still there. Needless to say, the seafood platter for two was just as we remembered. Ended up going two evenings in a row. Excellent, honest seafood as it should be made.
