Unfortunate location - a basement next the road - though they've made the best of it - but these people REALLY understand seafood

Back again and a winner as always. Great service and food. The duck was perfectly crispy, just the way I like it. So comfy and warm inside with the owner always around for a chat.

Decided to spoil my whole family and what a treat we had. The specials were varied and delicious. The staff were warm and friendly. We will definitely be back!

I am confused by the reviews for this restaurant. Perhaps these reviews apply in season only? This is the most ghastly meal I have encountered at a restaurant. The starters were not edible. The kingklip was tough and greasy. Certainly not fresh as promised by the waitress. This ghastly meal cost a quarter of the price of our Woolies weekly grocery budget. We feel totally ripped off.

It beggars belief that on one night we serve food of such quality to a group of foreign travellers, amongst others, that they returned the following night as they enjoyed the meal so much, and yet from the same kitchen, the same night, the food described above ??????????

Went on the first day of the off season. Bread and butter was tasteless, so we were blown away when we had the grilled calamari appetizer. Chicken kebabs and cape malay lamb were great choices. And the chocolate decadence (with vanilla ice cream) was a great way to finish. A bit pricey for SA, but definitely reasonable by US standards. Ate at the Kitchen Cafe the night before, which had better ambiance, but the food at The Med was quality. Service was good.
