“Nice seaside venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I went to Crawdaddy's with a group of friends and sat outside on the balcony. There was a lovely breeze, it can get quite humid in Ballito, and it was lovely to hear the ocean as we dined. Everybody was happy with their food, my son had the ribs which were amazing and the prawns looked great. I can't say if it was reasonably priced as I didn't see the bill but from what I remember of the prices they seemed fair with a lean towards the more expensive.....
It is definitely worth a visit.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Very informal but excellent service. Location is difficult to beat right on the beachfront. Six of us had a variety of courses and every one was superb. We will go back.

“Poor food, terrible service, great view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Eaten here twice this week. The worst service in Ballito. Potential is huge for a location like this, but the opportunity is lost. Fish is not fresh.
