This restaurant is right beside Ballito Bay, on the Indian Ocean. It has a wide variety of choices on the menu, and some are very interesting, different dishes. We ate well there!

After unexpectedly stopping at al prescatore just for the gorgeous view we were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and the service brilliant. Chicken and prawn pancakes were really outstanding, the calamari starter was brilliant and so was the Dorado fillet with coconut cream. Unusual food and definitely worth a revisit.

Had an early supper at Al Pescatore, sitting on the balcony enjoying the sunset, a glass of wine and the most delicious spare ribs ever. The ribs were super succulent and the meat just fell off the bone. The staff are very attentive and management was ever present.
