We took the whale coast platter and it was delicious. Probably the best kingklip we've ever had. The wine choise is good and wide.... so a great evening.

Few weeks ago we made a reservation for a table of 8 persons and booked a table next to the windows. On arrival we where put next to the coffee machine. As one of our guest has a hearing device we had asked for the window table. It appeared that our reservation was written in the book, but that the "Manager", decided differently according to the waitress. Later on the manager blamed the waitress etc etc. Two of the starters, oysters where of very poor quality, the rest of the food was acceptable. The manager was very unwilling to accept any responsibility ... so they just lost 8 customers for good.

We had extremely good food and excellent service from a waiter who spoke 6 languages.
My fillet steak were perfection and my wife said her sweet 'n sour hake were the best hake dish she ever had.

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.

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!
