Wendy was our waitress and she made our experience very pleasant. She took our orders, entertained my 2 year old so that I could eat without him on my lap and she also ran next door to get me change when there was no change in house. She deserves a medal.

Visited John Dory's with my Wife on a Wednesday evening. We arrived around about 5:30pm and there were a few seats available. At 6:30pm I noticed that all the seats were full and people waiting were seated once a table became available. We ordered the Sushi and found it to be very good. Service was good and staff were very friendly. I will certainly return again.

I love seafood and that's a great place to go for. The portions are bigger than expected and the fish, calamari, prawns and squids are so fresh and yummy. I ordered a side salad and expected a small plate, but the bowl i got was nearly as much as a regular salad. Even sushi looked more than yummy. Go there if you are around!!!

We were astonished by the friendly service, from the reception at the door, until we left. The food was absolutely delicious and prepared as requested! I would definitely visit again. The best restaurant in the area!

Visited with my wife. Red wine was very warm and undrinkable. We had sushi as starter and i ordered the hake and chips as a main. For R79.00 the fish and chip was pathetic and resembled a kiddies portion. If this is what you intend eating rather go elsewhere. Furthermore no one checks if you are happy with your meals. Overall a very poor dining experience.

Sometimes things just ALL fall in place.... I've eaten a few time here, and everytime i get Excellent service and even better tasting food!.... The manager comes around - asking the guest how their meals are - helping if needed. All waiters will keep an eye on all the tables - not just their own - this also Really impressed me. A great family restaurant with excellent tasting and prepared food with best service!

I always have the calamari when I eat here; I ate here three times during my recent visit . I was told that it is caught locally that is why it is so fresh and succulent. Staff are very friendly and efficient.

Decided on a Big Family Lunch and wanted to spoil them, with my mom in law and sisters, ordered oysters, prawns , you name it, however when we got the oysters mine was frozen inside....my sister put lemon on hers before smelling it,,,down it went and said to me somethings wrong...i smelt the oyster and nearly got sick....it was off...told manager...i felt sorry him as he was embarressed and apologised profusely , then we had calamari so use to having the rings but these were whole ones battered....so they landed up not being cleaned and had plastic or its outershell still inside , were not cleaned properly... Landed up cancelling our order there and then Manager asked if we wanted something else and apologised big time, and left... was sad as we were really looking forward to this meal.

I've been to many of the John Dory franchises but my worst experience was at the Bluff towers. My daughter was served sushi that smelled strange and upon questioning the waiter insisted that the fish was fresh. She subsequently got a bad case of food poisoning. My husband called the head office to complain and he was told that there was no way we could prove that she got sick from their food. No more John Dory for us.
