We wanted a peaceful dinner with good food, great service and a view, and we were not disappointed with our visit to The Great Room. Service was good, knowledgeable and cheerful, although we only wanted to choose from the lighter After Surf menu. Throughout our visit, we were treated just as if we were “fine dining”, which was available on a different menu with extra daily specials on offer. It looked varied and well thought out. There was also a great cocktail menu and an excellent wine list.

My burger was fresh, delicious and came with an offer of substituting fries for a top Caesar salad. Perfect, with the delicious glass of chilled rosé.

Came for an early dinner and also a breakfast. On each occasion enjoyed the fine views from well situated tables.

Food was good, but not special

Service varied, being very good for dinner but poor for breakfast (server needs a course in charm and customer service)

During our 5 days at the Lodge, we enjoyed two breakfasts and two dinners there. Friendly service, good food, great views of Cox Bay (including sunset). Two of us played chess there late one evening, and we would have liked to just sit in the lounge chairs in the afternoon and watch the world go by (but couldn’t find the time). Excellent functional room for restaurant, bar and relaxation when you’re staying at the Lodge, or just dropping in.

Dinner for two, table by the window, pounding surf only metres away. Watching the evening surfers enjoy the last light of day and a receding tide, we sat down for a relaxed dinner in the Great Room

Excellent Host and waitstaff. A well presented G&T and a smoked salmon amuse bouche

Wood fired pizza (photo) and seared halibut were exceptional

Wine pairing was well received and appreciated . The waitstaff are knowledgeable and never in your face or too far away. Well done

Cheesecake... day no more!

A great evening out. Make sure to make a reservation
