I ordered the seafood platter and and my daughter had seafood curry. Both had combinations of fresh local squid, fish & crab, along with shrimp the owner imports... More

Located a short walk from the penguin colony this is a busy restaurant offering both indoor and outdoor seating. I had a local beer (22 RA) and mussels as my main course (95 RA) the mussels were cooked in a broth which I found too salty for my taste, another guest had the seafood curry which he said was excellent....

A casual beach joint, decent seafood, especially the calamari, decent house wine, excellent espresso, friendly service, shaded breezy terracw with nice views (if you can ignore the parking lot) carefully controlled parking, a lovely short walk to the penguin colony.

I had visited a number of times in previous years, but was so disappointed on this visit. Service was extremely poor and management, so disinterested, that we left after waiting 90 minutes without getting our food. Kept asking our waiter and spoke to the manager twice, but to no effect.

This is a nice little hidden gem... service is a bit slow, but that is the only complaint I have! Food is fresh and prepared right. Price is also very good. Call ahead and book a place on the deck. Nice!!!

Being a nature lover, the thing I liked most from this restaurant was the setting! The view of the ocean is impeccable and the penguins are just a minute away. I had the boulder's burger which was a bit disappointing to be honest. The patties tasted like normal woolworths patties - nothing special. However, the cajun chicken burger was quite... More

Food was good and the environment was friendly. The view was fantastic to look at as the sea is beautiful. Great for drinks with friends.
