“The best hake and prawns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

South African Hake is unique. And so are the prawns. This restaurant is always busy, for good reason and the service is attentive.

“perennial favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

I have been visiting this restuarant for more than 20 years, through multiple renovations and owners.
It has always offered great fish at reasonable prices, with excellent service. The owners/managers greet every customer at the door and personally supervise every aspect of your visit. It shows. And dont miss the Greek salad as part of your meal. Its always excellent

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2008

This is my favourite restaurant. I am such a regular that the owner greets me with a hug and the waiters know my friends. Their Eishbein is the best. Beef Tcinchardo a must try. Do not skip the Butternut and Vanilla Ice Cream soup. (yes you read right) Their Pizza's and Pastas you can not miss. If you are still not sure what to order; ask what their specials are. Every night of the week they have specific specials. Give them a try.
