“Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

WOW!!!! what a location!! even if the food wasn't great I would recommend it, but the food was fantastic - Chef Lloyd was charming and compared to prices I have paid for similar brunches this was great value. The views are just awesome - if it is warm ask for a table outside upstairs. If you are in EL on a sunday this place is a must - take a stroll down the long staircase to the fantastic Cintsa beach after lunch to help you digest.

“get a more exciting menu”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

The venue is beautiful, set on a hill overlooking the sea.

The food uninspiring. You expect it to be a seafood menu and it's not.

“Rather lunch than dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We drove out from Gonubie and were unfortunately caught in the N2 roadworks. So if you go out from EL way from now till next year, avoid the N2 at all cost. The food was not the fine dining experience we expected, maybe our standard of Gauteng dining has raised our expectations a little. But the restaurant is undergoing some renovations and changes will be coming into effect soon. As we arrived a little late, we seemed to have missed the spectacular sunset. So I would recommend this place for an early dinner or lunch to enjoy the view.
