“The best hidden secret in Ballito.. amazing food and a view to match”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

If you want to go to a place where you can chill for the afternoon, sip on your beer and have amazing snacks... try Galley Beach Bar and Grill. I don't give 5 stars out easily but the food was truly amazing, service was just as brilliant and the setting was a view from heaven. Give this place a try.. you won't be sorry (ph the chicken livers is a must)

“Great sea view and delicious food”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

The view of the sea is something that you cannot get at many other ballito restaurants .We tried the seafood platter and it was delicious,the presentation of food is not clumsy but beautiful and the waitrons were friendly and welcoming.For seafood it provides good value for money

“Unbelievable views!”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

Ballito is a strange place. Being on the sea, there are not many restaurants that can offer the setting of this restaurant. Arguably this must be the best restaurant view in Ballito by far. Right on the beach looking over Umhlanga all the way to durban. Went there form lunch and the service was amazing. The waitrons was attentive and the good was outstanding. We really had an awesome meal there. For a sundowner or breakfast or lunch or dinner. Easy dining with a great view.

“Good Experience”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

while looking for a place to eat at for the night we stumbled across this restaurant practically on the beach. There are not many places you can find right on the beach in Ballito. The food was very good and not bad value for money. The view is gorgeous. Worth a try.
