“Unwelcoming”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We have eaten here before and had a wonderful experience so being in Umhlanga again staying at the OB we decided on Sunday to head up for a late afternoon snack with the family. We were met at the door by a lady saying that the kitchen closes at 15H30 so they are closed, then walked away. Looked at my watch and it was 15H15. Not sure whether it was the kitchen that was closing so not even asked if we would like a coffee and some cake.

I just wanted to let management know that it had erased all the memories of great meals we have enjoyed there. I appreciate it is a Sunday and staff and management want to get home but this small experience has been damaging.

“great service”

the food is pretty good and the eggs Benedict is the best ever. i think they are a little strict on the dress especially when we are there on holiday.

“Well done on Veg Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Have been always ordering a standard veg pizza and was somewhat disappointed to find the fungi/veg pizza option gone from the menu so tried the Bergamo with Taleggio cheese, mushrooms, marinated peppers & garlic. It looked kinda small but didn't disappoint at all

“Italian flair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We had dinner at this popular Italian Restaurant located on a busy corner in the ever popular coastal resort, Umhlanga. The beef tongue I had as a starter was superb. This restaurant is very popular and busy, fortunately the staff is well trained to handle the volume of patrons. We had pasta as main dish and were satisfied with our respective choices.
