Reviewed March 31, 2013

We used this Beach Bar Restaurant several times, rather than the Hops, we visited it that regular that theStaff remembered exactly what each of the 4 people visiting were drinking, right up until the final day we were there, the Food was average but at least it was hot and of decent quality. The location could not be better, the seating area is a bit tired and could do with a refurb.

“Rustic with a Fabulous View”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I love visiting the Galley Bar and Restaurant - I sit out on the deck and enjoy the seaview while enjoying drinks or a meal. Nothing beats breakfast (between 10am and 11am) on the deck watching the waves breaking a short way from you. I will always go back to the Galley when I am in Ballito. The service has always been good and the food very tasty.

“Nobody cares !!!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

The manager at this establishment is obviously either not paid enough or simply does not care about her job. Chewing gum with her arms folded watching Dstv. Poorly run establishment to say the least. From the moment I sat down all I wanted to do was leave and go somewhere else. After the waitress told me the seafood platter for one was R795. 00 and included fish nuggets. the closest priced dish was R140 seriously .Food was average. Defiantly will not be back! Really I cannot stress how badly this place is run!!!

“Moderate restaurant”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Bit pricey for what it is, however the view is stunning so ask for a window seat. The management were friendly and spoke to all the customers. The place is clean but tired looking
