A light Saturday lunch ended up in a culinary feast, again! Lovely fish and squid heads. Cocktails were great and we loved the names. So original. Rick, the manager, even though busy with weddings, still made time to greet (while entertaining a guest’s toddler), but...that’s how we know him. Well done Sailor!More

Excellent service, excellent food, beautiful views, clean and just awesome. The staff is excellent, friendly, take good care of the visitors. The Hotel itself is great, we stayed in room 10, the best view ever, door onto the room where one can sit outside and...enjoy a cup of coffee, you can organize with the hotel if you want do your own BBQ, they will provide anything you request. They have 2 bedroom self catering chalets with everything you need. All the chalets has great views. It has a sliding door that leads onto a patio where you can sit and have coffee early morning. Kids are safe, the gate to the chalets are remotely. Each visitor has their own remote. Shops are opposite the Hotel. This is the place to visit...More

We had a lovely evening with good food and a very friendly waitress and plenty mosquitos. The wine list was fine but we thought on the West Coast we would get more fresh fish varieties and not just hake.

So my husband and I arrived and the restaurant was clean and table settings perfect. First course a vegetable soup that tasted like a cup a soup. Second course cold spring rolls and cold hake goujon. Main course. A mess on a plate . Overcooked...pork chop frozen roast potatoes bland bland bland. We did not stay for dessert. I ate probably 2 tomato pieces and a piece of cucumber . Wine decent and cheap. But the food is definitely not up to par. I have never left a restaurant in the middle of a meal . This sunday "roast " left a bad taste in my mouthMore

Went for lunch. Sat outside. Waited half an hour and then went inside to find a menu. The waiter serving the table next to us said she would call someone to serve us( 4 times!) still no waiter an hour later. Not even that busy!...What a shame. Nice view though. Got too hungry and thirsty so we left.More

Dear guest, thank you for your feedback. We do apologize sincerely for the lack of service, it is not what we strive for at the restaurant. Wished you asked for the manager at reception so that it could be sorted out. Kind regards, Belinda

We visited this restaurant 3 times over the long weekend. Mostly because of the location and family friendly outside area. Beautiful view. Did not enjoy the fish, both Cob and Hake, as it was most definitely not fresh fish as you would expect. Eisbein was...huge and delicious and calamari -steak, -strips and -rings were excellent.More

Great view BUT waste of a beautiful venue. Very bad service & even worse food. Seafood basket - nothing fresh. Pizza is way overpriced for the quality & it was ice cold when it arrived. Won’t recommend at all.

The service is excellent, but not out of the ordinary elaborate. This is a small town business with not much activities, but the gateway to the West Coast sea activities and more good quality seafood.
