We were very disappointed with service. One of our party ordered a wrap but ages after ordering...and everyone having finished their drinks and cakes... it was nowhere in sight. The floor manager instead of apologising then tried to justify it and had audacity to argue with us about when we had ordered. Waitron who had messed up never showed his... More

The food was fabulous and the service was perfect. Openminded restaurant with wide range of food, where everyone can find his favourite cousine. Everything fresh and nice.

Great food. Service somewhat slow. Organic ingredients is what I like about this place. Even serves kombucha, quite unusual.

I was amazed at the extensive menu at Nina's. We ordered vegetarian food which was readily available. The food was freshly prepared, tasty, and the staff very friendly. Thanks for the hospitality, and the really, REALLY nice food. We would definitely cone again when we are back in Jeffrey's Bay. :))

The freshly caught fish and ostrich espetada (skewer) were very tasty. There is a cool surf vibe with surfboards on the walls, and a TV replaying footage from the JBay Open. The wait staff was friendly and efficient.

Although the range was wide and much to choose from the authenticity of the Thai dish was somewhat lacking. I do believe that with a smaller variety they would excell in the catering. The service was so poor the waiter came once to the table and the food was brought by another. We had to wait to pay our bill... More

Nina's really has the best quality food in J-Bay and all the meals are well prepared. We always used to just take pizza for take-away but this year we sat down a few times during the J-Bay Open and really enjoyed the other meals on the menu
