“The best T-bone in South Africa”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I go to this place yearly since 2005 and the food is simply great. The Swiss couple who ran the place had a more extensive menu and they've since narrowed it a little but it's a great eclectic place with interesting decor and comfy atmosphere.
My favorite dishes are the T-bone steak. The meat and cooking over an open wood fire rivals most places... including the various Cut restos I've been to around the world.
The other dish is the Appler-macaroni, a simple but awesome dish for the hungry types like myself. Zeeta and co run a great place but since it's a small kitchen, big groups have to wait a while. Best to call before you go.

“Cozy place”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

The small restaurant is located on second beach in Port St. Johns, directly next to "The lodge on the beach". Wonderful view, very friendly service, good food, small menu, very resonable prices. I would say the style of food is partly african partly international, highly recommended to visit this restaurant to feel a bit of the african spirit.
