“great food, great service and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

recommended by our motel for its seafood. We had great seafood soup, calamari pasta and salad. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was very colourful and inviting on a wet and cold winter's night. Wine list had a good selection at reasonable price. Unfortunately no crayfish dishes on menu which disappointed my friend who was looking forward to some

“Fantastic food, relaxed atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

I read about this place on trip advisor. Great food! I had miso and wasabi glazed kingklip and I was amazing. The calamari with peri peri butter was a favorite at the table. We thought it was the best calamari we have ever had. Desserts were delicious as well. I highly recommend a trip to this restaurant if you are in Cape Town.

“Great sea food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This place was recommended by our hotel and we we not disappointed. Its a small eatery run by a couple and they offer fresh sea food cooked in 5 or 6 different ways. I had an amazing mushroom topped with crab and Dorado fish on a bed of couscous. It might seem a little pricey, but its totally worth it.

“Best Dorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant certainly lived up to its reputation. It was the best Dorado I have had with the exception when I caught it myself.

“A great locals place to discover in Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Outstanding food, outstanding wines, outstanding customer service. Please try to make a reservation as this place is small and fills up fast...not to be missed while in Cape Town!
