The view of the ocean is exceptional. Food is on par with a normal steak establishment. Choices for vegetarians are limited to pizzas. Staff are friendly and make up for the shortcomings.

We were seated and then waited 30 min for waiter to take our order for drinks. When we ordered food we Waited more than a hour for it. Then half of it was cold. And not worth the money

This restaurant has a lovely position right on Margate beachfront. Unfortunately the food quality is inconsistant. Sometimes it is really good, other times is it terrible. We used to go there a lot and also recommended it to all our guests but not anymore. Something...More

Larry's Family Restaurant in Margate will ensure that your visit is a memorable one. We are ideally-located on Panorama Parade overlooking the popular Margate beachfront and paddling pool. It is a strikingly different and original eatery. For more than 20 years, the names of patrons have been burnt into wood panels, which have been used to decorate the walls, ceiling and furniture, both inside and on the verandah. Some patrons do it just for fun, but most to commemorate a special day. Also a feature of long standing at Larry''s is the quality of service and variety on its menu. The menu is both extensive and extremely flexible. In addition to a full range of steaks, burgers, seafood, pasta, pizza, grills and baskets.
