“Food for all tastes by the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The menu has something for everyone. The food is nicely cooked. The service is friendly but can be a bit slow at busy times. Nice to sit outside and plently to keep the children occupied on the beach - swings and tidal pool all within sight of the restaurant.

“Previous Employee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

I Do agree there is room for improvement. But when suggestions are made to improve one get told that you are not a manager. I've always been in the catering and tourism business. Managed spur had my own restaurant. And I've always believed waiters are the front line of any restaurant if they fail all else fail. All I can say Listen to your front line and work with them not against them. Glad to see that the new GM is doing all in his power to make a change. And sad that those dedicated and real caring waiters now also fall in the category of bad service. Not all is bad.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Cheery waiters with excellent coffee. The outdoor patio is a great place to watch the sunrise. Beautiful views of the rocky beach as well as the lighthouse.

The service at this place is terrible, I have been there with family from JHB and we arrived at 9:30pm and the guy that helped us, was so rude and told us that we could not order from the kitchen any more because he is going of shift soon!!!?? We ask for bottomless coffee and by the 2nd coffee he told us that this will be the last coffee we can order!?!?!?! Its really bad, because i like the place and the food is nice, but the service is just bad!!

“Delfino`s ~ nice food and a wonderful ocean view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

We were prepared for a lovely afternoon pf good food, good company and a lovely sea view. I had a bottomless cappucino, imagine that? The pizza was delicious and crammed with the topping. Other people in our group also enjoyed their food.
We were visually treated with a passing-by school of dolphins playing in the surf. Best time of the year is March and April for Mossel Bay.
