always lovely to visit st francis bay for a weekend away, Chokka black is a lovely seafood restaurant in the port, the dining area was very busy and very crowded, staff were nice and host was friendly, the food for me was very old fashioned...and geared for locals who want quantity more so that quality, I hate the smell of fried fish and my cloths smelled like fish when I left.More

Thank you for your comments, we have extractors in the kitchen, so not sure where the odour on the clothes would come from. Hope you visit again & have a better experience

We were lucky to get a table on a Saturday night without a reservation.as it was chock a block.LOL. The waiters were really good, the food was amazing! We ordered prawn risoles, queen prawns and beef trinchado. The first taste of the risoles and we...waxed lyrical. So do yourself a favor, make a booking and just go. The whole meal plus 2 espressos less than R600..A real treat.More

We found Chokka Block through Trip Advisor after completing the 2 bays walk from St Francis Bay. On arriving we were pleased to see that after seeing virtually no one on our walk or on arriving at the Marina, the place was buzzing - usually...a great sign, particularly as the bar below was completely empty. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had the most amazing food. My husband gambled on one of the specials, Octopus tenticle and I went for the crayfish. Both dishes were delicious and incredibly reasonably priced. I treid the Octopus (see picture) and it was sliced thinly and melted in the mouth - what a dish! One of the best meals we had in our entire South Africa trip and made all the better from it being a surprise findMore

Thank you for the great review, our local calamari is far superior to any other !!!

Reviewed 23 December 2021 via mobile

This has to be the best calamari I’ve had ever - had local calamari and squid heads with wings cooked three different ways. The others went in all the way and had prawns too … smiles all around. The price for 6 of us was...less than we paid for three of us at Table 58 in East London. To hell with the diet …. We are coming back tomorrowMore

Not Sure. My impression is that it isn’t allowed to bring your own wine. Furthermore, bringing your OWN wine is niet necessary as they serve excellent wines at a good price
