The seafood in this place was great. The most surprising gem at the table was the bread and we asked for extra. I know you do not usually go to the restaurant for the bread but it was wonderful!!! Warm, moist and almost a sweet taste to it. Everyone had a lunch seafood special and no one was disappointed.

Went here while on business in Cape Town because it was convenient.While there was nothing particularly wrong with the place, there was also nothing that stood out. Food and service were OK, but nothing more, There are probably better places in Cape Town.

We arrived and were greeted promptly. even though, we had not booked they were very willing to accommodate us. Our starters of a salad and our mains of line fish and chips were outstanding. The fish was cooked to perfection and the portion were generous and well presented. At all times service attentive and friendly.

Awful service and even worse tasting food served within a very badly maintained restaurant that lives within a 70's time warp! Kingklip tasteless served with a milky, acid paired liquid that was supposed to be a lemon butter sauce. Vegetables are served from the bain marie - old, stodgy and discoloured. Service is slow. Entire restaurant is dirty. Give it... More
