Very hard to beat Enrioc's location perched above one of the best beaches I have ever seen. We enjoyed a New Year's Eve dinner and could not have been more satisfied. The staff was top notch, the house wine smooth and delicious and the food was straight out of Italy. We enjoyed the Grilled Prawns, Fish Enrico, a Lamb special,... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions. I have read most of the previous reviews and have realised that people who complain should rather stay at home and cook their own food. At Enrico the philosophy is simple. Eat here if you are not rushed, enjoy life, enjoy relaxing and Like to take your time to enjoy the finer... More

The position is awesome, the owner is so real and passionate about his restaurant and food and they go out of their way to accommodate numerous dietary needs. They have gluten free options, the fish is so fresh and they definitely have the best pizza's in town!

Awesome setting and well worth the visit. Went just after peak season in Jan and still it was full. Had a line and a wait of about 45 minutes but met a very pretty and friendly German girl (with her boyfriend) so this passes the time quickly 😀. Organised a bottle of wine while waiting but had to beg and... More

Enrico is from Rome and although some menu items have been adapted to South African tastes over the 30 years he has been in South Africa, most are pretty authentic - particularly the "Enrico special", which is usually grilled line fish. Wines are very reasonable and the wine list is printed on a magnum-sized wine bottle on the tables. This... More

We have been coming here over the years. Food and service has always been outstanding. Sadly, we were let down on this visit. Food was cold, service slow, this was out of peak too. We might frequent another restaurant in the area next time! Come on Enrico, time to up your game!

Thank you Oracle GX, i am sorry but wondering as to why you did not call me as it appears that you know the restaurant well. in two seconds i would have changed your perspective and, taking into consideration that La Vita e' Bella.....you would have walked out happier. Thank you. More

Although the wait to be seated (no reservations taken) can be tedious, it is always worthwhile. Not so much for the food, than the superb setting right on the beach. Late afternoons will be the best time to be there, and hope for the beautiful sunset we had! Very busy, wait period about an hour for a table

We really enjoyed a sunset dining experience here the other night. The booma garlic bread is a must have appetizer. We also really enjoyed the singer throughout the night.

Thank RevJon
