A compliment to Trevor...

We had great dinner quite some time ago. (Dec 2014) Compliment to Trevor to take customer feedback seriously and for the obvious passion for customer satisfaction with personal feedback. Marc

We only ordered a take away, but had a cocktail while waiting. I think the cocktails were a bit pricey but the pizza was delicious and not expensive at all. You can also sit on the deck with a beautiful view of the ocean.

Last year I vowed never to go back, my wife and daughter coerced me yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised. The pineapple special is still available (4 years now?) We had a great meal with very good service

A few years ago we decided not to eat there anymore because of bad management and food not up to standard. What a nice surprise when we ate there last weekend. The very friendly owner welcomed us in the re-decorated restaurant. He was around all the time and made us feel extremely welcome. The waitress knew the menu and the... More

I cannot say enough about the service shown to us by the manager and waitrons. They were hospitable and attentive, really well educated on the food they serve and hard workers! The food was just as described by our waitress who suggested the special of baby Kingklip and it did not disappoint. The only suggestion I have for La Pescatore... More

Thanks for your constructive input .We don't put the specials on a board , because we feel we forge relationships with our customers by verbally explaining them.I do agree that there may be too many ,but the girls love the interaction and always ask for more :) If you cant remember any ,just ask me or my wonderful girls. Thanks... More

Great food, amazing coctails... And the waiters know their menu perfectly, and they don't bug you every 12 seconds. They just do not have that "i have to come back" feel to the restaurant... But a great place!
