The waitron delivered the fish and chips fried in batter where we ordered grilled. No offer was made to rectify. Very little chips, tasteless fish. In general very poor service. Potentially a super venue, but they seem rather disinterested in the whole affair. Wont be...back.More

Wanted to have lunch here and we started off by ordering drinks. The ice tea I ordered tasted salty and when I looked in my glass, I took out a slimy substance using a straw that came from my glass which totally put us off....So we paid for the 1 drink and left. Not coming there again. First impressions: not impressed!More

I grew up in East London and come here every few years on holiday from Johannesburg. We always look for a different eatery than we get in Gauteng. This place has it all. Beach front, good service, great tasting food and priced right. I would...recommend this place to anybody who wants to relax, look at the sea and have a tasty meal. Well done Shelly team.More

Always enjoyed going to Shelley’s for a good meal, but now the portions have been reduced by half, no garnish or sides added AND you have to pay for the butter! Not good!

We loved our Ginger beer Float and the toasted sarnie with chips was a great filler we shared for a light lunch. As OPS we tend to find sharing is caring, for our respective waistlines, and they gave separate plates too.
