We had one of the best meals in our South African trip in this restaurant. The seafood was really good and staff was fantastic. If in the area I will definitely go back!

We were rather disappointed with this restaurant. After not being able to order mussels as a main course (they only do as starter, and serve with rice which did not appeal too us) we ended up choosing Melanzane. Small helping and very bland. Salad accompanying it was good though. There was only 1 waitress serving and it was quite busy... More

It takes a long time you ever can imagine to get your order ready. Our order takes ONE & 45 MINUTES to be ready to eat and wasn't worth the wait never.

This has to be one of the best steaks and fish I have ever tried. The quality of the food was simply outstanding. From the starters to the main course, everything was made to perfection. Definitely one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. I would highly recommend you to order the fillet steak and the calamari steak.... More

Dinner for three! Welcomed into the restaurant, shown to our table and the service was great the whole evening. We chose the Oysters as the starter and they were outstanding. Sole and prawns - our choice for main meals. This was the best sole that I have ever had - superb. However the prawns were disappointing, no rice, came without... More

We went out for my mothers 70th birthday and had a great evening with excellent food. The age range of the guests was between 8 and 70 and no one was disappointed. Our waitress was as enthusiastic as the food was great. The restaurant was very full (on a Thursday night) and as a result the service suffered a little... More

And the meat options looked very good, too, as they passed our table. The oysters from Arniston Bay were delicious as were the prawns and fish. Some of the tastiest fish and seafood we have ever eaten, and great care is taken with the sides as well. The service was really great and we were made to feel completely at... More

Had a lovely meal here. The oysters and sole were amazing! We had such wonderful service. The decor and atmosphere was cosy, homely and perfectly nautically themed.
