The service and food here was just average. I tried to order 4 different cocktails from their menu before finding one they actually had the ingredients in stock to make. I had to flag down our server repeatedly to ask for more drinks. The food was just average.

An absolutely wonderful location with the worse food I have ever had. Such a pity that they occupy a prime spot beachfront spot! Unsuspecting tourists & visitors frequent this establishment but is bound to leave with a bad view of what Camps Bay has to offer. Their 'discount' meals attract poor quality clientele. Cleaning the restaurant thoroughly and employing better... More

As the owner i do try and respond positively and resolve any objective constructive criticism. But when a customer goes all out to attempt to slander a restaurant in every manner and post comments that are both untrue and unfounded , its very difficult not to show emotion or displeasure. We are only human , serving thousands of guests each... More

Beautiful sea view, the season has a special of two meals with one free, good hospitality, a waitress who like me was a vegetarian so she understood my needs, pretty couches and chandeliers - sorry some had an awful time at Tuscany, I was not one of them! My friend got back from a long sea voyage and was delighted... More

Went for lunch, had pasta and found a stone or piece of gravel in my food when I bit into it. The manager on duty was surprised that this could happen but not really apologetic. I felt disgusted that I ate food from such a dirty kitchen.

I thought it was correct to respond to this customers complaint since finding a small stone in a pasta dish is unacceptable and for that i am truly sorry , but to be very honest here myself and my chefs , we are all at a total loss on how on earth this could actually happen. It certainly does not... More

Looked okay from the outside but a bit dirty inside. Extensive menu, friendly staff and good drinks but the location deserves much better food. I would try another place next time.

I really feel that i must respond to this customers remarks of " a bit dirty inside " . Apart from being somewhat bemused at posting a single comment like this without making some more detail or reference to the actual problem that they confronted , I am obviously concerned as any restaurant owner would be . Its a great... More

Pathetic. .. not a good experience!!! watered down cocktails galore. R190 for a fish bowl with minimal alcohol content because the JUG is topped up with juice!! If I wanted juice id simply take it out of my granmothers house!! The managers solution to our watered long island fish jug was simply making another long island cocktail and adding it... More

Let me first comment that any cocktail is not supposed to be overpowering in taste with alcohol. We follow a strict recipe and sure there ice in the fish bowl , especially with the heat wave we have experienced here recently. You paid R190 , my Manager kindly gave you another 5 shot cocktail , normal price at R 60,... More

The food was well prepared and presented. Everyone in our group loved their entrees. The service was efficient and friendly. The prices were reasonable for food of this quality. It was certainly one of our best meals in the Cape area.

While the food was fair to good, the tactics used to up our bill were atrocious. This started when we asked for tap water, and the waitress responded that their tap water had a strange smell and some white liquid in it! So, bottled water. Next a relentless pushing of the high priced specials and combinations. Then a strong push... More
