Booked a table over the phone, as we wanted to try out the moules. No problem making the reservation.
Restaurant is easy to find on Beach Road with plenty of parking spaces available.
Met at the door which is nice (though there is a large CCTV monitor right above the door, showing you're being recorded - why do they bother doing that?).
Shown to the table by the smartly dressed lady maître d'. The table was right in front of a large plate glass window, with beautiful views of the bay and sunset.
The first problem is the table was right by the bar, so you are overlooked by patrons at the bar, they are very close to your table. More like having dinner in a pub than a restaurant. There is also little to deaden the sound, as there are no soft interioir furnishings.
The waiter who took our order was well prepared and talked us through the specials. No mussels and no kingklip. If you want fish, the only fish is Norwegian farmed salmon. How odd is that? We are right by the sea, in the midst of the fishing season and they only have imported farmed salmon.
Never mind, we ordered the 250 gram rump steak medium rare with pepper sauce and vegatables and the salmon with salad.
Both salmon and steak were well prepared. In fact the steak was excellent, though it was rather small. The pepper sauce was on the side in a small gravy boat, which I find a bit odd. In fact, if you want a decent pepper steak, go to Ben's on the Beach next door. Their steaks can't be beaten, and they are of generous size. The vegatable serving was pathetic (will attach a photo). Two tiny florettes of cauliflower a few juilianne strips of carrot!
Half way through our meal, some folk are shown to their table. Imagine our surprise when the order and are served moules!!
We queried this with the maître d'. She seemed most embarressed, and offered us free desserts.
Went for the cheeseboard which was excellent, and the crepe suzette which was very good.
The coffees were beautifully served (Ben's take note)!
So, sorry only gets three stars from us. Would have been four if we were not messed around with the moules.
