This restaurant came with a lot of hype because i always hear about how good their food is, but in all honesty i was quite disappointed with what we got. The service at the restaurant was quite good even though it was a packed night. The food on the other hand lacked flavor, the prawns were just okay, it wasn't... More

We visited after always seeing one of our friends check in there on facebook. Knowing him and his attitude to food we knew it had to be good. I highly recommend the bisque as well as the prawns. We will be back!

Had lunch and enjoyed it very much! Great prawns for my souse and I had the rib/prawns. Prawns were well sized and perfectly grilled. Comes well recommended for lunch!

A lunch time family outing for seafood. Good music good service and good food. We all had a milkshake that was very good, can highly recommend it. The lunch time Menu is very reasonably priced but not very large portions.

Neat little seafood restaurant tucked away. Prawn Creole is recommended. Staff are friendly and restaurant has an accommodating ambience.

Following numerous visits over the years, we again were not disappointed with our meals. The prawns are cooked to absolute perfection and the Kingklip, prawn combo were just as tasty. Service is always good and the waiters were attentive. Will certainly be back!

... But do NOT order the seafood basket. It is a major disappointment. Not worth it. The prawn special however is delicious and prepared well! Great accompanying sauces and the service was also good. The basket's fish was very oily and the two rings of calamari. Hence the disappointment.

My wife and I asked the waiter whether the prawn special would be enough for the tea of us, the reply was refreshingly honest, try one helping and if insufficient order another. That set the tone for the evening, we had different waiters at various stages of the evening and they were all very friendly and professional. All in all... More
