“Great dinner”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

Fun, loud, casual restaurant with excellent food. Huge menu with great variety of fish and preparations. Very large portions at reasonable prices. Split a dish if you don't have a big appetite. We all had different fish and they were all delicious. Good side salad, too.

“You won't be disappointed”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

Ate here sort of by accident because a different restaurant we were trying to get into was full. Very happy about it. Food was great and service was very good. Really enjoyed the restaurant and the ambiance.

“Lovin their food!”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

Been to the Mulbarton Panorama resturant a good few times. Always greeted with a smile and a chat from the Manager. Food is always good - top of my list is the fish and chips which sells for under R60. Do let me know if you eat that portion yourself because I certainly cannot! I love the condiments of chilli and garlic which is served with the meal. Staff are friendly. Restuarant is never overly full that one does not get service. Popped in for a quick lunch the other day - chicken prego and chips for a ridiculous R29.00! It was really tasty and filling!. Their calamari is also a huge hit. Try it sometime.

“Yum yum yum!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Went this past Friday to the Rosebank branch for dinner with my husband. Restaurant was very busy, but we had a quieter table near the entrance (probably because I booked in advance). Our waiter Donald was efficient and not intrusive. For starters, I had the lobster bisque and my husband had the creamy mussels. Both were delicious and went very well with the complimentary rolls on the table (crispy outside, warm inside...perfect!). The best part is that the food is very well seasoned here so we never had to add any salt to any of the meals. For mains I had the medium langoustines (which were on special) with chips and vegetables and my husband had the seafood spaghettini. He said it was ok (not brilliant) but should have had fish or prawns rather. The langoustines were amazing! Well seasoned, not over cooked and still juicy. The vegetables were delicious (the best creamed spinach I have had in a while) and the chips were perfectly cooked (crispy outside, soft inside). Mains are large so there was definitely no space for dessert. Prices are higher than other franchise-type seafood restaurants, however the portions are bigger and the quality is definitely better. They also leave you with a stack of side plates for your shells and take them away promptly one by one as they each get full, a great idea. Will most definitely be back.
