“Service with a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

I must say that this meal at the Sea Food restaurant at the Marine was one of the best we had had on our holiday in south Africa. The service was superb and the attention to detail was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and so so tasty could not fault a thing. If anything wanted to eat it all over again.
I wish I ate here every night, The cost was good as well not overpriced. Wish I had more days to eat here, Will be back

“Bargain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Excellent though basic fare served beautifully plated. The home made prawn ravioli was as good as in any Italian trattoria, while the Bunny Chow could have been prepared in Durban, except that the presentation in a freshly baked pot bread was striking and playful.

“Absolutely incredible food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Came with my husband and mother and father in law for dinner in April over the Easter weekend. We had delicious cocktails in the bar before our meal and the attentive waiter brought us the menus and took our order from the bar, where we were sitting comfortably and enjoying the view. We had a three course meal and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed our food. The surf and Turf was one of the best I have ever had. We will definitely be back!

“Incredible setting on teh seafront”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

This lunch did not come cheap but the setting on a beautiful April day was magnificent, right on the seafront
The staff were friendly and my fish meal was great - my husband did not do so well with the vegetarian meal of the day

“Perfectly fine, if a little sterile.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Set in the rather splendid Marine Hotel, which looks like a large white wedding cake, the seafood restaurant has perfectly good seafood and excellent service in a rather boring, somewhat sterile dining room.

Thank you for your positive comments however we are concerned that you feel the setting was sterile.
Would you be so kind as to elaborate so that we may be given the opportunity to improve on this.
Thank you and kind regards
