I have never been a fan of Dorado fish until I ate some at The Drydock.

I started with oysters witch they unfortunately only had cultivated on stock.. But to my enjoyment, they must have been harvested only halve an hour ago!
Next I had the seafood platter for one and was amazed at the freshness of almost everything on my plate as it was Christmas Day and besides that.. You rarely find food that fresh tasting. The only downer was the mussels witch was fresh for sure but was a tad bit dry..

My fiancé had chicken and ribs and it seemed finger licking good!

The view on top of all was great. Looking over the marina with all the catamarans and sailboats.

Definitely worth going again!

We ate 2 meals at this restaurant . When you find a good one, why try elsewhere? One of the cheapest meals on the menu (R69) was fish and chips. It comes with a salad. Some of the best fish & chips I have tasted anywhere in the world. The staff were also friendly and accommodating.

No wonder this place is busy. The food was wonderful - what a Springbok Steak and the service was terrific too. Make sure to book especially at weekends.
