As we sat down I ordered our drinks. A carafe of wine and tap water. A bottle of wine arrives with a bottle of sparkling water. Not a good start at all! But when the food arrived it was simple and fresh and absolutely delicious.

great big tree to site under, but waiting for 20 minutes to have a coffee, and then it comes cold - not great! If you want good coffee rather try some other spots.

What can I say, this place is like a little heaven of Salmon and Trout. The fish are all locally sourced and as fresh as can be. Try the Salmon and Trout experience for 2. Make sure to have enough time to enjoy this with a couple bottles of wine under the beautiful tree in the courtyard. the grilled baby... More

We decided on the Salmon Bar for a light lunch, yet after studying the menu, the chicken curry sounded the most interesting.

Sitting on the outdoor balcony was delightful. The service was good but the food was excellent! The tuna/salmon burger was amazing and the Kingklip was prepared very well too! All in all, we had a lovely experience.
