“Good food, good service”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Had dinner with the family, no reservations were made yet they were more than willing to accommodate us. We were seated quickly and our drinks orders were taken. Children had a nice selection on the kiddies menu, and got an ice cream dessert included in the price of their meal. The starters were so filling for the adults that there was barely place for a main course. Overall a great restaurant, friendly fast service.Delicious food, and fair prices. Will most certainly return

“Sea views, good food, good service”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is one of our favorites. Al Pescatore is just that little bit better. Personal attention by the owner always makes a big difference. Guests are properly welcomed, and feel looked after from the moment they enter.
The food is not the cheapest, some dishes are quite pricey, but it is very well prepared and served with a flourish.
The setting....with a 180 degree sea view, and the good service has made this one of the very best restaurants in Ballito.
