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

Overall, excellent! Service was terrific - friendly, efficient, and professional. Great wine selection, ambiance and fresh seafood. We started with the Bloody Mary oysters, which were amazing! Then, the seafood platter with baby lobster, langoustines, queen prawns, mussels, and calamari. The sides of garlic butter, drawn butter, and cocktail sauce were perfect. The portions are generous (we shared the seafood... More

The seafood platters are absolutely delicious, the atmosphere is lovely and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Just a warning, the lobster thermidor is extremely rich and not for the faint of heart or health conscious.

Having eaten here on a number of occasions previously when visiting Umhlanga, we were looking forward to going there again. We ordered the one kilo of prawns 'special' but, although the prawns were tasty, it didn't look as though there was a kilo of prawns and we felt we had received better value at other restaurants. The kiddies meal was... More

Booked Lord Prawn for a friend's birthday. I asked them to do a little something special and was surprised to find a nice table decorated with birthday sparkles and roses. We ordered the 1 kg prawns and a rib and prawn combo. The food was delicious - prawns are fresh and sauces are divine. I would go back and eat... More
