We had the ribs, the low carb green curry, the lamb burger and the aubergine lasagna. All great! Also the cappuccino was greay, which is a rare thing around here. The food takes a bit to arrive when it is crowded, but it is worth the wait.

Went as a group of 7 people on New Year's day, the restaurant was busy but the waiter was sensational. Never missed a beat and was very helpful and attentive. The pizza came piping hot out of the oven and was the most amazing pizza I had had all year! Jokes aside, the pizza was amazing and the ribs my father had was even better! Will definitely be coming back!

It is important to note that Jaxx had 2 shifts somehow their day or morning shift is not as efficient as their evening. Evening the service is 10/10, good equally excellent. Day time it really needs to be sharpened up: breakfast tastes great but not to wait 45min and there are hardly any patrons. So I’d say great food always, Khanya is a brilliant manager she is always helpful and very on the ball.

We arrived at Jaxx to beat the crowd and after 10 minutes had to be asked to be served despite there being only 3 tables in the restaurant. My meal, a reasonable pizza arrived nearly 15 minutes after the lamb hamburger. I hate to think how it will be when they are busy. I ordered a dessert creme brúlèè and a capuccino, the latter arrived 5 mins later the terrible no crack creme brùleè 10 mins later I think it must have been frozen and microwaved and the top of the brulee was a soggy wet sugar. I'm not sure what Jaxx is about but as a new customer I certainly wouldn't go back despite a lovely setting. Do yourself a favour and give it a miss.

We visited for a lunch and was disappointed and wasn’t impressed at all with the food, the price you pay for the food and also with the mediocre service. The “creamy” mussel pot was expensive for what you received and the sauce tasted like synthetic packet sauce and the lamb curry tasted like stew. You overlook a busy intersection and listen to trucks but there is a distant sea view. Sorry guys but I would go elsewhere as it wasn’t a great experience.

Table of 6 ... An absolute disaster! First the menu is outdated and some items are no longer available. Then 3 of the orders contain fillet and cannot be served because the kitchen has run out of fillet. Then they substitute one with rump and stuff it up completely and bring the completely wrong order, take it back and re serve it differently, had to be sent back again and the patron decided that she didn't even want to eat anymore. The wrap order was served with chips when it was specifically stated a salad. Even ordering shooters was a mess and we were brought the wrong order .... We were too scared to order deserts and definately won't be back!

We enjoyed dinner at Jaxx on Friday, 13 March after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. They didn't disappoint. Food is delicious and portions are big. Thoroughly enjoyed the kingklip with prawns and mussels and my other guest enjoyed a delicious rump steak with chips. Went back the next day to get Pizza takeaway from them - delicious!

We had lunch last Sunday at Jaxx after reading the reviews which was positive. My husband had the eisbein and I ordered the beef curry. A good chef will know that the correct amount of salt enhances the taste and flavors of the food. Both of our food was tasteless because the lack thereoff. The toilet sign is also a bit confusing, as one of the lady customers went to the gents side, maybe some arrows will help. The waitress gave good service.

Good Day Ria, so sorry you didn't enjoy your food, to my knowledge we don't serve a beef curry, only a lamb curry? But all criticisms are welcomed as it makes I strive to be better. I will chat to the chef about the seasoning. Thanks Lee

While staying in Umtentwini a local resident suggested that we eat at Jaxx Restaurant. We did and we were pleasantly surprised at the really good fare served up by them. It was a Thursday night and the restaurant was filled to the brim with "ladies night" patrons. The vibe was good and we enjoyed the food immensely. I fully recommend this place for good food, great atmosphere and fantastic service.

We are from Hibberdene but seeing that we play tennis at Umtentweni, we visit Jaxx very often when we are down here on holiday. Best pizza ever! Pls try the cajun fillet steak pizza - it is simply wonderful. If you want something sweet the creme brule is a special treat but if you like carrot cake - order it. It is home made and the best I ever had. I am fussy with food so take this review serious. The owner/manager knows us even if we come down here 2-3 times a year. He will ask, are you having the same again 👏🏻

My wife and I were looking for a venue where we could spend a relaxed evening enjoying some good food--Jaxx had been recommended as an appropriate restaurant. The recommendations were spot on! It was easy to find with plenty of safe parking. The servers added to the evening with good and efficient service and a great sense of humour. The menu was eclectic with something for everyone. Our selections were very well presented and tasty, decent sized portions. No pretensions but a good evening all round.

This restaurant was rated number one in the south coast & it did not disappoint! Thursday night rib special was delicious - perfectly cooked. Would definitely go back during the day to try their pizza and see their great location (sea view). Atmosphere is just what we are used to in Jhb.

We usually visit South Africa from the UK every year and stay near Tweni. However, until Nov 23 we had not returned since the Covid lockdowns once the airlines started working almost reliably. We have been eating at Jaxx since it opened and have always had good service and food. We visited soon after our arrival and I am sorry to say we were disappointed. We cannot fault the friendly and attentive service. Our starter was served reasonably quickly and was good. However, after placing our order for mains we were told after some time that one choice was not available. Our mains took a very long time to arrive, and when they did, they were hardly warm, let alone hot. My wife likes her lamb pink, but parts were raw. It seems the restaurant had technical problems, but despite our positive experience in the past, we are unlikely to return during this holiday.

Visited Jaxx with the family during our holiday stay in Port Shepstone. Bitterly disappointing experience at Jaxx. The staff is not properly trained to give customers a pleasant experience. No warm greeting upon arrival. No bread while waiting for a loooong time for food. Our empty glasses were still on the table when the food was served— very disturbing. Waiter didn’t come back to ask if we needed any sauces with the food. The food was the biggest letdown of all. A dry steak with no flavor. Shocking shocking delivery. No manager or staff even bothered to ask us if we had enjoyed the meal?! The establishment is in a beautiful setting but what a disappointment.

My wife and I have recently moved to KZN and we took a gentle drive down the coast and stopped for lunch at JAXX. What a good decision that was. we shared a Lamb Shank and yoghurt Pizza. It was big enough for the 2 of us and was absolutely delicious. Best Pizza we have had in a very long time. Service was good and quick and was chuffed to see my favourite Kraft Beer. Have recommended your restaurant to everyone we have spoken to recently. We will be back soon
