Couldn't fault this place for quality of food and service. A large and varied menu including steaks, seafood, chicken, curry. All looked and smelled so good it was hard to choose but opted for a fillet steak in the end which was absolutely melt in the mouth tender. Delicious desserts too and very reasonably priced. This restaurant is quite busy... More

Seefood is good, as well as their red meat. Good service is also part of the package. Very convenient location.

The open DECK, the best seats, are ALWAYS filled with SMOKERS and drunks! Why is NON smokers not given the deck and smokers the dark, poorly ventilated and poorly serviced in sider seats?

If you are having a bad day , I suggest you think before you rant the way you have . Smoking comprises less than a third of the space of our outside decks and less than 15 percent of total seating capacity . If you have a issue with the smoking laws of the country , i suggest you take... More

I love their seafood!! Good for dates and family gatherings. They have an awesome menu. Great atmosphere as well. I've always had good service. I'd suggest making a reservation before going.

Being from the States I always am happy to get some good seafood! This place will require a ride in Uber if you are staying in Pretoria but it is definitely worth the ride! We had the most amazing oysters! And the prawns were exceptional as well as the wine choices! And the waiter helped us jump on wifi to... More

Nice casual restaurant which is perfect for a night out either as a couple or with friends. They have a great selection of food and I've never had anything I didn't like. Lunches here are great as well.

We arrived at Sunday lunchtime - it was packed! Because it gets busy you need to book if you want to get near the best open areas that look outside. We didn't book so were seated inside - absolutely fine. Cool Ocean themed rustic fit out - like a scene from Jaws! Had the Thai (Queen) Prawn Curry - beyond... More
