We go here rather often - there are many reasons why, but you should too! They have really good food and daily specials depending on which day... their cocktails go along with the fantastic view of the ocean / false by and their service is...top notch.More

I am hooked on this place after having lunch here. The ambiance of this place is cosy and the service amazing. And the food. Oh my goodness. From the Cheesy Garlic snails, chicken livers, the pizza, the steak, …. I can not even choose my...favorite dish. All is delicious. This is a must visit restaurant when in Gordonsbay. Absolutely a Gem!!! I will definitely keep on eating here 🤩🤩. Good job Chefs!!More

We ordered the mussels and grilled fish with salad. The fish was a small portion, but the mussels portion was huge! I asked for bread instead of rice, and got 3 slices of sliced white bread. I couldn't eat the white bread, so the waiter...brought me some brown seed bread, much better. The mussels were very nice. We weren't offered any wine or desserts, but the food was great!More

We initially came her for lunch and found service and food great. Decided to come back for and evening meal and weren’t disappointed. The service from Prince was great.Started with oysters which were fresh and delicious. Then on to to full SA experience of a...lamb cape Malay curry and oxtail stew ..,, the meat just fell off the bone and the taste was amazing. Finished by sharing a malva pudding ( main course sizes aren’t small!) All in all very happy with our experience at this restaurant.More

Talla’s used to be must visit restaurant for high quality beer battered hake and chips washed down with cold white wine or beer. Our last visit didn’t live up to expectations. Service was slow to non existent and the food very average. Location is still...great but it certainly no longer a restaurant that I would unreservedly recommend to friends. A pity.More

Very disappointing! This placed has the potential to be so much more! Fresh prawns were not fresh at all and the fish was clearly frozen and tasteless. Great pity as the location is great!

We have eaten at Tallas approx 10 times in the past 2 months - seafood, curry, meat. It is consistently delicious. The bonus is the awesome view and safe COVID protocols. We look forward to many more excellent meals.

If you have time to wait for good prepared food, then be my guest. Service was friendly but not experienced. Too many people attended to us and therefore I feel that communication between the waiter the manager and the kitchen was zero. I made sure...on arrival (11h20) to announce that I had to leave at 12h45, and gave our whole order immediately. We were also prepared to eat what came from the kitchen first and not in frequency of starters, main etc. I had to repeatedly ask were our food was as my daughter was finished with her mini b/fast and I still waited. At 12h40 there was still no sign of the only thing my son order which was a seafood special and was promised "just another 2 min" . By 13h05 I received his food in a take away bag. 1h45 preparation for a plate of food... Like I said the food is good if you have time on your handsMore
