Good seafood restaurant.

This restaurant consistently serves very good seafood . It has an interesting well balanced menu with other choices like meat, curries etc as well. Very good quality fresh oysters and a good selection of wine from the cellars in surrounding area. It is well managed and we had excellent service.

We had the freshest seafood yet. Our waiter Collin is such a character and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves seafood!

As mentioned the Restuarant lived up to its reputation . Overwhelmingly Friendly and efficient hospitality and service to a large group. The ambience complimented the excellent tasty variety of dishes of food. The fish dishes were fantastic!

The restaurant has no personality. I did not like the sea food plate at all. The seafood almost tasted re-heated, no flavour. I will not be recommending or eating there again.

Superb meal here following a recommendation from our guest house the Potting Shed. The seafood was great and the menu had plenty of choice. We had prawns, calamari, sea bass and cape crayfish and it was all delicious. Would have great views in the daytime.

A restaurant with a good view over Walker Bay, so you can watch the whales from a high view point. The food is good and they have lots of specials on the menu - 2 courses R120, from a specific menu. Good value, good vibe, excellent service and good food

We had a very nice meal. Food was quite good as was service, both despite the fact that the electricity was shut off due to SA power shedding shortly after our arrival. This restaurant has stunning views of the ocean.

They were highly recommended by family, so we decided to try them out. I love battered hake, but feel that their portions are just too big (I was taught to finish my plate of food, so you feel quite stuffed when finishing the hake). Otherwise apleasant experience

this is my favourite sushi venue in The Northern suburbs of Cape Town / durbanville area: always fresh and average value if you choose the platters. Great for light lunches. Also the line fish ( yellowtail) grilled is really good not with loads of butter like at Ocean basket, and fresh with minimal seasoning. Worth a try !
