We have now visited this establishment a few times spread out over a few months. Every time the service has been excellent (why can other restaurants not train waiters like this establishment???) and the sushi out of this world. I have eaten sushi (as a...family we just love sashimi and sushi) at many top restaurants in the Western Cape, Gauteng and in Japan- but this is the best! I hope that the quality control will stay in place- Keep up the good work!!!More

Visit with family. The service is quick and efficient and the food surprisingly good. Had sushi and oysters for starters. Then prawns and ramen and a poke bowl for mains. These were all very tasty and the portions are more than adequate - we could...not finish all the food! This venue is a little gem. It was obviously packed and we were lucky to get a reservation. Now we know why. Will definitely go here again!!More

The staff are effecient and always friendly. The menu offers a wonderful selection, seafood pastas , sushi, prawns seafood platters etc., and we have never been disappointed with our meall. Suggest however a little more generosity on the amount served in the glass of wine...option. Must book for dinners always full.More

Exceptional food and service. We went for dinner with friends, where Ryan served us, he made great suggestions and knew the top 5 main courses off by heart. My husband and friend had the sushi where I had the fish cakes for starters and it...was delicious. For mains they ordered the yellow fin tuna which was a hit with its beautiful salad decoration which made the meal even more attractive, for my main course I ordered the calamari and prawn combo which did not disappoint- YUM! The wine menu however is very limited, so I would suggest taking your own wine since they do not charge for corkage 🍷 I hope that you get to enjoy your meal as much as we did 🍤🍣🍛More

Had a wonderful lunch at Saltwater Grill. Prawn starters were excellent and I had a curry which was absolutely stunning. Perfectly flavoured amd plenty of seafood. My wife had the calamari which was equally as good. We didn’t have wine, but rather opted for some...CBC craft beers. TOP TIP: Rather have the CBC Amber Weiss than the Krystal Weiss. The Amber Weiss is a 440ml while the Krystal Weiss is a 340ml. Both for the same price.More
