The location is superb, the terrace is right at the lagoon overseeing boats and houses of the locals. The menu had fish and meat, but we had the sushi and that we can recommend.

We had oysters, grilled fish, peri peri prwans and a soup followed by macadmia nut brownie with ice cream. The fish was tasteless but the rest were either good or alright. The brownie was really yummy. Service was good and the place has a nice view. It gets really busy so you need to make a reservation.

This is one of the best places I ate at while in South Africa. Located on the water in one of the most beautiful cities in the country. The menu has a great selection but I would recommend the fresh seafood. Show up hungry and enjoy. jan 2013

This restaurant was almost full when we arrived but we could not understand why as the food was just average.Maybe the chef was not there that night.
