One of the first places we ate on our trip to South Africa and a really memorable meal. Delicious, incredibly fresh seafood and sushi. Helpful and friendly staff. A thoroughly enjoyable lunch. Highly recommended.

This is crowded and touristy vibe on arrival but sit near the windows facing the sea and enjoy the view. The food was exceptional. Everything we enjoyed was awesome. We loved the tempura prawns, They were small and looked a little plain on a platter but surprised us. The salad with goats cheese dressing was divine. And the pilaf was... More

We were advised to eat here, and on our first evening enjoyed the mediterranean seafood platter. It was beautifully cooked, and you did not need a starter! We had a lovely table in the window and the service was friendly and efficient. We decided that it was so good that we would return on our last day for lunch and... More
