“Great for a beach lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Food was good an no skimping . Service friendly and helpful. Good food - great views. This is not fancy but is extremely good and fantastic value for money - will have to go a long way to beat this

“have a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

great spot for a drink. we ate here a few times- appetizers mostly but they weren't great. it overlooks the main beach and is good for people/boat/water sport watching.

“Best view in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Went there when on holiday in September 2012, and can see myself becoming a regular when we move to Plett in a few years. Right on the beach, we sat on the deck the 3 times we were there.
The food is not the best I have ever had, but still good, I loved the oysters. Good value for money, and a very good place for a light lunch and a few drinks with friends.

“location tops, but that is it !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

you cannot be closer to the sea, and if you are at the beach anyway, you can go there. but it is not very clean and the food is very average.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

It's obviously a fairly popular place but it was a bit run down- needs some re-furbishment.
Food wasn't too bad- average
