“BEST SEAFOOD PLATTER IN TOWN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant. We came upon this delightful place by sheer accident, when my husband and I took a walk about in the area. The ambience is relaxed and chilled with simple seating and sand on the floor - reminds me of my Cafe Del Mar days! There were even buckets, spades and other toys for children to play with - so family friendly too.

Staff were warm and friendly, and the menu was simple - and we like this ethos. Our waitress recommended the seafood platter. However, she was informative and suggested alternatives if we would prefer. Initially we intended only to stop by for a few drinks, but as people ventured in and out, and observing the platters being ordered and clear plates taken away, we decided to try them. Well.... the seafood was cooked perfectly, with plenty to choose from. The little touches such as homemade tartar sauce, and flannels to wash your hands was SUPERB!

I always go my the motto that you can tell a lot about an owners attitude/approach to their business when you venture into the toilets.... These were simple, immaculate and CLEAN!

Once our son woke up from his nap, he happily played in the sand with other children, and because the restaurant is enclosed, it was perfectly safe for him to walk around and have a nose himself.

We will definately be back the next time we return to SA. Thank you to all the staff for making our visit so enjoyable.

“The calamari ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

The food is excellent. But the calamari with their homemade tartar sauce is out of this world... Not even the word amazing does it justice.!! If you ever in Mosselbay you have to make a turn here!

“Fantastic evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

I recently had supper there and experienced seafood as I never had before. The food was freshly prepared by the owner. The mussel soup is a winner. I can gladly recommend this restaurant to any seafood lover. The siting around the campfire after the supper was a memorable closure of the evening.
