I dine at the LP reasonably often and have never been disappointed in either their fare or their service. The staff are friendly and helpful and often display a keen sense of humour. Their oysters are superior to any others I 've had in Umhlanga even to more costly establishments within close proximity. I would recommend the LP as the... More

Great seafood at reasonable prices, ask for the prawn, its their specialty, great wine selection, If you don't like seafood there are other options and just as good!

Great seafood and decent prices. Book in advance though as it can get rather busy. Very friendly service.

Always a great ambience. The service is professional and the staff friendly and knowledgable. I have eaten a few times here and the Millionaires Platter is my favourite. All dishes I have tried are fresh, have super flavor and are always a delight.

with a name like lord prawn I expected to be blown away by the seafood but unfortunately it was very average and I've tasted better...service is quite good and the setting is relaxed....it could just be my taste buds so you have to try it for yourself

Maybe it is we are Americans and just expecting something different.... The prawns were overcooked and in a sea of greasy sauce. All three of us left them on our plates. The spinach and sweet potato side was great. Fries were also just frozen to fried yuck. Service was friendly and great.

i have eaten there 5 times so far and its my husbands favorite for prawns. the prawns are greatly prepared fresh. eisbein a good choice if you want something thats not the norm. platter for 1 or 2 is excellent for sharing. the starter Seafood St Jacques is the best with or without the garlic bread :)

We stayed for three nights in Umhlanga rocks and were so impressed the first evening we ate here that we came back both other evenings! Food is great, very tasty seafood and prices were very good. We would definitely recommend it.

Thank Myrto G
