After a few bad experiences last year, we agreed to come back and try again, as the restaurant has had a wonderful reputation over many years. The meals that we had today were first class and they easily wiped out any recollection of bad experiences,...caused by really sad circumstances. Nicky, you have risen from it and certainly brought back the really lovely ambiance, service and food quality that we have always known and respected. The service and the food quality was superb today and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Well done.More

Greetings, Thanks so much for your great review. It’s so wonderful to have loyal supporters that keep coming back to the Tratt. Unfortunately when you visited previously it was a year ago in peak season, & we’d had difficulties with getting our deliveries on time,...More

Although specializing in Italian food, this restaurant offers limited choices of some lovely meat and fish dishes as well. We were warmly welcomed and sat on the verandah overlooking the lagoon as it was perfect weather. A fair drinks menu is offered and the choice...of pizza, pasta and associated dishes offers lots of options. There was a festive atmosphere, being the 23rd December and the venue was packed which probably explains why the food took quite a while...... but it was worth waiting for. There is such a nice balance of flavors in everything.More

We made a reservation online for 14:00 however when we got there we were told the kitchen closes at 14:30. The waitress made us feel like she was doing us a favour...quite rude to be honest. The food was excellent, wine was excellent. No music,...no ambience? Would we go back?More

Greetings Gianni, I’m sorry to read about your experience. As you were booked for 2 pm our waitress should not have mentioned the kitchen closing. I will take it up with her. We usually have music playing, with frequent load shedding we have to restart...More

This is one of my favourite restaurants anywhere. Love the Italian simplicity of the food - just great quality and with a great menu. Stylish and chic without being too fancy. A relaxing place and always a great dinner.

The location of this restaurant is beautiful and has a good vibe. Unfortunately the food did not meet our expectations. For the price we were disappointed in the unimaginative food which was quite bland. ( like something you would make at home) Pizza seemed to...look good will give them a try next time and staff were friendly.More

The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was authentic Italian in every way. We shared a pizza between four of us as a starter that was delicious and straight out the pizza oven. I had the pasta parcels filled with lamb as a main which...was sensational. Followed by a cheese cake with a brûlée twist. Great wine selection and really just a delicious meal all round. It’s definitely worth the visit if you are down the south coast.More

Our first return visit in over 20 years and its better than ever. Great setting on the river / estuary, entertainment provided by Vervet Monkeys, enticing proper Italian menu, good wine list but sadly no Italian varietals except Prosecco by the glass. The best Gnocchi...I have ever been served in a restaurant anywhere in the world, simply flour and potato and no eggs, so light and fluffy as they should be. The Spaghettini Gamberi was simply magic with large juicy prawns cooked to perfection as was the Spaghettini. A delicious desert of Citrus Polenta cake followed, but sadly no coffee due to loadshedding. A great return visit and we will be back again and again.More

The service was extremely poor. We ordered our food at 13:00 and reveived our food at 14:00. The manager also didn’t come to check if everything was alright. The food was delicious and everyone was happy with their choice of food.

Horrid service. It started with the table allocation - despite booking 10 days in advance, our table was in the sun. To move was a monumental issue. But we managed to move to a shady table. That table was never filled. We ordered starters and...main courses. We waited 3 hours. And the owner said " don't come on our busy day " No apology. Restaurant was not even full. Certainly not recommended.More

I was extremely disappointed with my recent visit to this restaurant. We had made a reservation for lunch, but upon arriving, we were seated without a waiter coming to our table for a full 20 minutes. When I finally went in search of someone to...take our drink order, I was frustrated by the lack of attention we were receiving. To make matters worse, the food was not up to par. The beef caparitisio starter was underwhelming and left a lot to be desired. The focaccia was the only bright spot of the meal, but even that was not enough to salvage the overall experience. For the main course, we ordered the prawn spaghettini. Unfortunately, the pasta was overcooked and very soft, and the tomato sauce was basic and lacked flavour. The prawns still tasted frozen and did not have much taste at all. To top it all off, the bathroom was in need of maintenance. While the location of the restaurant was amazing and had great views, the poor service and subpar food left a lot to be desired. I would not recommend this restaurant based on my experience. Would have loved to raise these issues in petso but no one cared to ask once if everything was okayMore
