“Good food, owner run establishment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Great food and a warm welcome make this owner run restaurant a good place to visit. She also recommend other fabulous restaurants and was a good local to get quality information from about places to visit in Plett and the surrounding areas.

“Finest seafood in the Southern Cape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

Unfortunate location - a basement next the road - though they've made the best of it - but these people REALLY understand seafood

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

Back again and a winner as always. Great service and food. The duck was perfectly crispy, just the way I like it. So comfy and warm inside with the owner always around for a chat.

“Ghastly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011 via mobile

I am confused by the reviews for this restaurant. Perhaps these reviews apply in season only? This is the most ghastly meal I have encountered at a restaurant. The starters were not edible. The kingklip was tough and greasy. Certainly not fresh as promised by the waitress. This ghastly meal cost a quarter of the price of our Woolies weekly grocery budget. We feel totally ripped off.

It beggars belief that on one night we serve food of such quality to a group of foreign travellers, amongst others, that they returned the following night as they enjoyed the meal so much, and yet from the same kitchen, the same night, the food described above ??????????
