We were staying close and decided to get dinner at the hotel. It was absolutely delicious. The snails were the best that I had in many years. I do not like blue cheese and they served it with a cheese sauce. Fantastic. We also had the option of the buffet desert after our meal and the pancakes were nice. It... More

Not great for vegetarians or gluten free unless you organise upfront. Not a wonderful choice but the food is good nonetheless.

Breakfast was delicious with fresh ingredients and we could see a lot of love went into making it for us. Hats off to the chef! Our waitress gave us excellent service. Views of the palm trees and...

Variety of amazing dishes every day. Freshly made food and I enjoyed the mussels, and specially the Butternut soup.

Stopped here by chance and what a treat. Fantastic food in a ideal beach setting with live music in the back ground. Finishing lunch with a drink outside looking over the Indian Ocean on the dolphin coast. Bring the kids along as well.

This hotel has been around for ever - set among tall palm trees with a stunning view of the sea and tidal pool. Relax with a cocktail on the veranda at sundown before heading in for dinner. I love the curries here - their crab curry is the best on the Dolphin coast and has been for many years. Popular... More

Sunday night buffet. Overpriced and the 'famous' curry was so dry we couldn't get through it. No flavor at all. Kids food was burnt and the coffee is delivered to you with instant coffee sachets like a cheap motel. The staff have been directed to up sell every single choice you make. Go for the location, do not go for... More

I was surprised to see mainly senior people dine here, as there is a nice 1kiddies play area. Food is good value for money. Very delicious!
