We just cruised around and picked Kingfisher for its location. If I looked on TA 1st I would have picked something else - to my regret I didn't. In short, met at the door fine, had a choice of tables as about 1/5 full, early. Asked for a wine on their list, had the wrong wine brought twice after which the waiter said the wine I ordered is not stocked by them. Had to get the wine list back, had to spoonfeed and point it out, and viola, not only was it on the list but they had it in stock as well.This where I should have been out of the door, but unfortunately I had to put up with salad plonked on the table with no dressing, salt/pepper or cutlery and a vanishing waiter. To add the calamari was overcooked and luke warm. All in all an extremely unpleasant experience...I didn't leave a tip.

At The Kingfisher in George we had a good dining experience and therefore decided to try the Mosselbay one as well. Great location at the point with a beaut view if you sit outside but the service was not great and the seafood platter was disappointing. The sushi however was good - Salmon was fresh.

After visiting a couple of restaurants during our holiday in December, we went to Kingfisher for our last evening. I was surprised by good service although it was very busy. Our food was also very nice

It's got a great location but the food was more or less a fast-food quality. I would recommend it for a quick lunch or just a quick drink. Be prepared to witness a lot of tween and early 20s pretending to be adults. Not my kind of scene.
