Non-existent service

While the food is good at this restaurant, the service leaves a lot to be desired. A "middle-aged" blonde lady served us and she lookss if she hates her job. She borders on being rude! We had to wait ages to get the bill and then I eventually went to the till to pay while she continued with her... read more

This is really a great place and when you enter with your bare feet on the sand floor you expect a great experience. The setting and atmosphere makes for a great party so take a group of good friends. You are in for a good time. The food quality is very average though (or even below average compared to what...

Have never had bad service here. Always a wonderful atmosphere and delicious food. Food portions are brilliant as well - you won't be hungry after leaving! A must visit if in the area

Wonderful situation on the sand at the beach, very informal and relaxed, great for a drink but we found the meal helpings to be unnecessarily large and the food not freshly cooked. Both the chicken and the prawns tasted old and re-heated.

This is a laid back establishment with seriously good food and great ambiance. When you walk through the front door you are greeted with a sandy, beachlike floor that is soft under your feet and makes you feel at home. The interior is well decorated with old maritime treasures and wooden boards with previous happy vistitors names on. They have... More

Tapas offers superb laid back eating experience with a warm welcoming ambiance. I went with friends to celebrate a wedding anniversary and for fish lovers this is a very good place. So if you want an unrushed pace, warm welcoming ambiance, sand under your feet and generous portions then come here. Morne and his friendly team will serve you just... More

Huge portions of average fish , but you have to wait an incredibly long time. Service does not exist , should have read the other reviews before we went to Tapas. Would we go back , afraid not.
