Do yourself a flavour and try the Ginger Chilli Linefish at Lemon Butta, its a new flavour experience. Reasonably priced well prepared and presented Sushi as well! Friendly knowledgeable staff, good service well worth a visit.

“Good Food, Good Wine”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This was recommended to us by our hotel based on previous guests feedback and we were not disappointed.
As this was "off-season" we didn't need to book for an evening meal but I would imagine during busy season you would need to book in advance as it was still quite busy!
The food was excellent and enjoyed by all five of us - they also had some very nice wines on the menu that went very well with the seafood!
Highly recommend the calamari starter (tubes with chilli) and nice crème brulee!

“Sushi is excellent!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had sushi for lunch, which was excellent. The sushi was fresh, well prepared and good portions, we enjoyed it! So we decided to have dinner here the day after as well and made a reservations. They warned us that it was fully booked but had one table left, we took it. It wqs very busy and therefore the service rushed. The food, a nice fish platter, was really good (a bit too much for two) but we felt rushed by the waiters and not just the one who helped us.

Thanks so much for your review. We take pride in our sushi and we are happy to hear we are producing a product that is up to your standard. I am very sorry you guys felt rushed at your dinner! There is absolutely no reason for the waiters to have rushed you and I am very angry about this. I will definitely be bringing this up (and reminding them over and over) at our weekly meetings. Hoping to have you dine with us again! Paul

“Nice place, small town”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Our Guide Tony mentioned 4 places in town that were really good to eat at. Many tourist places he said to stay away from. This restaurant is on the 2nd floor of a shopping area. crowded and noisy, we were there during the whale festival. We had the calamari, dim sum prawn, malay prawn curry and the goan seafood curry. All the food was well done. Our wine was the Hamilton Russell Pinot, very good for South African reds. This was a very nice place for a small town.
