Taken into consideration that it is season when we go, but this place was packed the whole time during the event, which obviously speaks to its popularity, not only among locals, but also... More

Imagine a restaurant that captures the global surf vibe of J-Bay? Nina's is that kind of place. With a huge menu and loads of variety, you can eat at Nina's almost every night (and we did) ranging from steaks to fish to pizza, pasta, Thai, curries and a great vegetarian variety across all their categories. There's also an incredible gelato... More

This is still one of my favourite restaurants in Jeffreysbay... They have something that suits everybody's taste... Love the decor and atmosphere, this place is ALWAYS BUSY!! Love the stirfrys and salads... They can improve on their pizza... One of your best bets in jbay...

Nina's continues to impress and amaze me every time I travel to Jeffrey's Bay with it's extra-large menu, friendly, helpful staff and ultra-consistent high standard of quality. Every meal is fantastic!

Every time my wife and I pull into Jbay for the weekend, we are sure to find ourselves at Nina's ordering great food. A well run family business with great staff and an awesome atmosphere for the entire family to enjoy. This restaurant ticks all the boxes. We can't wait for our next trip.

Visited Ninas for lunch. The menu is rather overwhelming in terms of what to choose. Settled for the Portuguese chicken - it was tasty and good portion size. Friendly service. Be warned that waiting times can be long.
