Food is good, quite a few choices of sea food or meat. Nice cocktails to enjoy while looking at the beach from the balcony, there is also a small bar attached to the restaurant where you can continue drinking

This quaint restaurant buzzes with energy. It has great seafood, fantastic atmosphere and a suburb view. It is situated on the beach and the service is excellent. Lunched there twice and it was well worth it

Ouch, I hate writing a poor review, but for the location, this might have been one of the worst restaurants we went to in S.A - Old shabby Decor, Oysters which were not fresh, fish which was bland and prawns (shrimps) that were drenched in...More
