“Thumb's up!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We were only in Cape Town for 4 days, but enjoyed our first visit so much we went back again. The fish is perfectly cooked with a good choice of sauces and good accompaniments. Service was excellent and on the second visit, madame ruling the roost in many ways made the evening. Great buzzy atmosphere on both visits. We will definitely return when we come back to Cape Town. Be sure to book as this place is understandably extremely popular.

“The best Dorado ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is a very nice restaurant. We ate here on the Friday evening and i had Dorado for dinner. It was perfect! The atmosphere, the wine and the price. A very good choice for seafood.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The food here was pretty good. Not knock you over great. But it is definitely worth a visit because the staff is so great. Friendly and attentive (but not overly so). It's acid green and dark pink colour scheme is a bit garish, but I would imagine it matches the fun energy this place has.
